OKLAHOMA CITY - A few unique items that most people probably haven't seen before are some treasures.

An old beer glass from a brewery in Los Angeles that was discovered in a farm-house wasn't worth a lot of money, but it is definitely something that would be a unique piece in any collection.

The glass was worth about $15.

A wash board that was used to clean undergarments and baby clothes  would not be used today, but is a nice trinket and is worth about $25 to $35 on the open market.

Hand-carved soap stone that was used to create bookends is worth $45 to $55.

A figurine that was purchased at a yard sale is also worth about $55 on the open market.

Check if you have any treasures around your house that could be worth money!
