Corridor Man Plans to Sell "Priceless" Photo
Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 01:14 PM CDT
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28)--A picture of Winston Churchill found here in the corridor is nearly priceless.
Six years ago, CBS 2 brought you the story of man who thought he bought a poster of Winston Churchill.
Instead, it was an original photo of the former British prime minister and now he's learning what it's really worth.
What would you do with a priceless photograph?
It's a big question for Rev. Fred Moren.
"The fact that I have it now is because it was God's will,” he said.
It's a photo he bought six years ago at a salvation army thrift store for just a dollar, but he soon learned of its historical value.
Taken in 1951, it graced the cover of life magazine two years later and after locking it up for six years, last week Rev. Fred got in touch with an appraiser in London.
"That's when I saw on there where he said estimate 3,000 to 12,000, but my personal opinion is that it is priceless,” he said.
In the email, the appraiser describes the picture as priceless because of a few factors: its subject Prime Minister Winston Churchill, the famous photographer who took the picture and its museum like quality.
Fred made a copy seven years ago at a Walgreens and on August 17th he's going to give it away to a lucky winner at a parking lot sale.
As for the original copy, “my plan from here is to let someone professionally help me set it up to put it on the market, he said.
"I'm happy that he finally got some closure concerning the photograph. I know he's wondered about it for years,” his daughter Asiah Vance said.
The reverend says whatever amount of money he makes from selling the photo he plans to give at least ten percent to the church.
