Honest Estonian cashes in on treasure find

An honest Estonian who turned in a treasure of more than a thousand ancient silver coins he dug up in a field got his just reward Thursday, when the government decided to give him nearly 100,000 euros.

“Under Estonian law, a person who finds and turns over ancient treasure to the authorities is entitled to the half of its value,” the Estonian government said on its website.

“An expert study by Estonian heritage authorities found the treasure is worth 198,126 euros ($273,000),” it said.

The identity of the lucky treasure hunter was not made public.
