Since the start of Maryland’s unclaimed property program, in 2007, more than $1.2-billion worth of property has been returned to the rightful owners.

But over that time the state has taken in some $3-billion – so there’s still about $2-billion worth of unclaimed property being held by the comptroller’s office. Much of it was found in safe deposit boxes that are abandoned by their owners.

This week’s hidden treasure – “2011 American Silver Eagles”

They are special, dollar coins, minted from 99.9% pure silver.

State records show that at some point, the coins belonged to, or were associated with someone named "Bruce Hughes"
