Auction team strike gold in cottage search

Hoarder's home yielded gold coins worth as much as £80,000 during clearing operation.

A treasure trove of rare gold coins, worth up to £80,000 has been unearthed at a hoarder's cottage in Perthshire. Auction house valuers found the hidden pieces in among plies of debris and bric-a-brac at a rundown country house. The team from Lindsay Burns & Company in Perth were warned to wear face masks and beware of rats running around inside the property. However their efforts were rewarded when around 20 boxes of collectable coins were recovered from the property and saved from landfill. They will be offered for sale next week. The house was cleared after its owner, who lived on her own for several years, went into residential care.
