Workers Find Gold Bar

Monday, June 23, 2014

Workers in the city of Kokand, Uzbekistan have discovered a gold bar worth $750,000.

The workers were digging a cesspit near the Hamza cinema when they stumbled across the 13.5 kilogram bar which is said to date from the beginning of the last century. Despite an average daily income of just $3-$8, the honest workers promptly handed their find into the city police department.

Fortunately, Uzbek legislation decrees that anyone who finds an historical artifact is entitled to receive 25% of its value!
