June 19, 2012 (CHICAGO)

The items disappeared from the museum in the 900-block of North Milwaukee Avenue sometime in the 1970s or 1980s. They were recovered from a home in Chicago in 2011.

The artifacts include rare 18th and 19th century documents -- prints and sketches. Also stolen were military medals and World War II era propaganda.

The FBI says the items are valued at $5 million.
