Silver and gold are two of the most popular items in Illinois' unclaimed property auction.

The treasurer's office says there's been so much interest in the auction that it had to increase its computer server capacity.

Many of the items are from abandoned lockboxes. Treasures include cash, coins and baseball cards.

The public has until the evening of December 11 to enter your bids.
