Stolen TreasureLooking to get rich quick? Hope you have fast fingers. Recently a Canadian coin worth almost $5 million was stolen from a Berlin museum. But that’s nothing compared to some of the other treasures that have been stolen throughout history. So to refresh your memory MSN Money has put together a list of the most valuable treasures people have swiped. From 1885 until about 1917 the house of Faberge crafted about 50 bejeweled eggs for the Russian royal family. Amid the chaos of the revolution eight of the eggs were confiscated and lost. One of them surfaced at a scrap metal dealership in the American Midwest and went on to sell for about $33 million. In 1887 Vincent Van Gogh painted yellow and red poppies valued at $55 million. It was stolen twice and recovered once. Currently it’s still missing with a reward for information of $175,000. To check out what else is on the list click the link below. And keep your eyes peeled, who knows where they will turn up. Link:ξMost Valuable Stolen Treasure
