Diamond dropped into Kansas Salvation Army kettle
Salvation Army finds diamond among the dollars in Kansas donation kettle
By The Associated Press

SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) ' The Salvation Army in northeastern Kansas is trying to put a price on an unusual item dropped into one of its red kettles: a diamond.

Salvation Army business manager Richard Natividad tells KCTV (http://bit.ly/vkcmA6 ) that the diamond turned up amid the cash donated outside a Walmart in the Kansas City suburb of Shawnee.

Natividad says he and other workers were counting the cash when they came across a balled-up piece of paper. He almost threw it out, thinking it was trash, but opened the paper to discover the diamond inside.



Natividad estimates the diamond is nearly a carat, but he'd like to get it appraised. He says one appraiser wanted $75 for the service. The Salvation Army hopes that someone will offer to appraise it for free.
