SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) A diamond that was dropped into a Salvation Army red kettle in Kansas has sold for more than $6,000.
An unknown out-of-state buyer paid $6,325 Tuesday in an eBay auction. The diamond, which was set in a ring donated by a Kansas City jeweler, drew 86 bids during a weeklong auction.
It has a cut that is no longer used and is thought to have been cut more than 100 years ago.
The Salvation Army in Kansas City, Kan., said the proceeds would be used in Wyandotte County.
