ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Time to clean out your closets and dig through your attic, you may strike it rich. Or at least make a few extra bucks.

The Ohio Valley Refinery and Roadshow is in Albany this week at Country Inn and Suites on Nottingham Way. They are looking for gold, rare coins and paper currency, and other collector's items.

Here's one example of a special find in Albany; a German war helmet and bayonet, bought Wednesday afternoon. They are worth about $1,500 combined.

While organizers say rare finds that bring in a lot of money for sellers don't happen often, you can walk away with some extra money in your pocket.

Don Land, of the Ohio Valley Gold & Silver Refinery said, "You do see the ones that need money, they are selling off their gold to pay a bill and we kind of look at it like a stimulus package. We spend anywhere from $150,000 to $200,000 any given week in a town, so that's a lot of money that we're putting back into the economy."

The roadshow will be at Country Inn and Suites, on Nottingham Way, through Saturday.
