SEQUIM, Wash. (Metro) -- A rare piece of someone's religious family history is on display at a Sequim thrift store.
The historic 1886 pictorial family Bible was left in a plastic bag full of donations at the Goodwill store in Sequim.
Brandi Donovan, who works online for shopgoodwill.com, found the 126-year-old Parallel Bible while going through donations last month.
She tells peninsuladailynews.com it's a once-in-a-lifetime find.
Both the cover and the spine of the Bible are broken and there are many loose pages.
Inside, a notation says that it had been presented to William H. Duvall from his son in 1887.
It also contained a lock of hair and pressed flowers.
Donovan estimates the Bible is valued at between 500 and two-thousand dollars, but she would never sell it.
Because whoever donated it can't be contacted, the historic Bible is destined for safe keeping at Goodwill headquarters.
