BOSTON (CBS) – The state is cashing in big time on unclaimed property.

In October, The State Treasurer’s office started selling unclaimed property on EBay.

Some 960 items from abandoned safe deposit boxes went up for sale.

The items were appraised at just around $285,000.

Apparently they were in high demand.

The auctions raked in $434,000, which all goes into the state general fund.
