Posted at 12:28 PM, Dec 08, 2021

The state of Maryland holds billions of dollars worth of unclaimed property, and the state is required, by law, to try and get all of it back to its rightful owners.

Every Thursday, on Good Morning Maryland, Christian Schaffer will highlight a "Hidden Treasure"

First up... a Purple Heart.

The Purple Heart is awarded to a member of the US Military who is wounded or killed in service.

State records show that, at some point, this medal belonged to or was associated with someone named Deborah Campbell Jackson.
