Well it was in 80-something and I think his job was to clean out the house to be demolished or something. He wasn't just going snooping in random houses. That really is beside the point anyway

Ahh! I envy you, that you've seen it. As for the chances of having it for one's very own; I agree - the lottery is the only answer.

But I bet I can make a guess as to which institution or body will end up with it...

My granddad found this chess set in an abandoned house a while back and I was curious about its worth. I haven't been able to find anything about it on the internet. The kings are a good 5" tall, all pieces still have red felt on the bottom, and there is no board. Anybody know what it might go for?
