SALT LAKE CITY, UT (KSTU/CNN) -The town museum in Sandy, UT, was holding an antiques fundraiser, inviting residents to donate money to find out how much their valuables were worth.
A rare book dealer, Ken Sanders, could not stop looking at what may have been the biggest findings of his career, when a man paid $2 to have his antique book examined.
“A gentleman walked in and said I’ve got a really important book here and I’m sitting there rolling my eyes and thing, ‘yeah, sure you do,'” Sanders said. “Then he opens it up and it’s a Nuremberg Chronicles from 1494.”
The Nuremberg Chronicles, comes from a time known as “the cradle pf printing,” is one of the world’s oldest printed books.
