So you didn’t win the Mega Millions? Come into Best Collateral for a sure win.

Three holders of a winning ticket in the record-breaking $656 million Mega Million jackpot have come forward in Maryland. The winners are three public school employees holding down multiple jobs, and they have chosen to remain anonymous. They are splitting the winnings of the third ticket, which will give them a little less than $35 million each after taxes.

The winners, who are referring to themselves as “The Three Amigos,” are a woman in her 20s, a woman in her 50s, and a man in his 40s. One of the winners is an elementary school teacher, one is a special education teacher, and the third is an administrative assistant, but they all hold down multiple jobs. Each contributed $20 to purchase a total of 60 tickets.
The three Maryland winners said they will keep working, citing a commitment to their students.

“If it can’t be you, these are precisely the people that you would want to see win the lottery,” said Stephen Martino, director of the Maryland Lottery, said at an April 10 news conference.

The winning Maryland ticket was one of three winning tickets selected March 30. The Maryland ticket was purchased at a 7-Eleven in the Baltimore area. The retailer gets $100,000 for selling the ticket.

The other two winning tickets were sold in Kansas and Illinois. The Kansas winner came forward last week, but chose to remain anonymous. No winner has come forward yet in Illinois. The winner has a year to claim the winnings.
The announcement of the Maryland winners means that Maryland resident Mirlande Wilson, the McDonald’s employee who said she had lost her winning ticket, is not the winner. Wilson held a news briefing announcing her win, but later said she had lost the ticket.

Wilson told The New York Post, “I’m still looking for it. I haven’t even looked in my uniform pants yet,” she said. “I’m still looking everywhere to find it, in my purse, everywhere.”

Need to get rid of your Fabergé egg collection this Easter? Visit us as part of your spring cleaning.

Fabergé eggs were jeweled eggs made of precious metals or hard stones decorated with gems made by the House of Fabergé from 1885 through 1917. Though thousands were made, the most popular were large eggs made for Alexander III and Nicholas II of Russia. These eggs are often referred to as the Imperial Fabergé eggs.

Tsar Alexander III first commissioned the House of Fabergé to make an Easter egg as a gift for his wife, the Empress Maria Fedorovna, in 1885. The egg had a gold-enameled “shell” representing a normal hen’s egg. It pulled apart to reveal a gold yolk, which in turn opened to reveal a gold chicken. The chicken also opened to show a replica of the Imperial Crown, which had a miniature ruby egg suspended from it. Though the crown and miniature egg have been lost, the rest of the Hen Egg remains in a private collection.

Of the 50 imperial eggs made, 42 have survived. Ten are on display at the Kremlin Armory Museum in Moscow. After the Russian Revolution, the House of Fabergé was taken under government ownership by the Bolsheviks, and the Fabergé family fled to Switzerland, where Peter Carl Fabergé, the designer of the original Fabergé egg, died in 1920. The Romanov palaces were ransacked and their treasures moved on order of Vladimir Lenin to the Kremlin Armory.

Two more imperial eggs, the Constellation and Karelian Birch eggs, were planned to be delivered in 1918 but never were, because Nicholas II and his family were assassinated that year and Nicholas had abdicated the crown the year before.

Of the total 65 known large Fabergé eggs, 57 have survived. The rest were miniature ones that were popular gifts during Easter season. They would be worn on a neck chain either singly or in groups.

A Winter Fabergé egg sold for $9.6 million in 2002, and a Fabergé clock, named by Christie’s auction house the Rothschild egg, sold at auction for more than $15 million in 2007. It was the most expensive timepiece, Russian object, and Fabergé object ever sold at auction.

Don’t have a Fabergé egg collection? Don’t worry, we take other items. Visit one of our 8 Best Collateral locations in the San Francisco area.

New Email Alerts Remind You When Your Loan Is Due!!!!

Best Collateral is on your side. We’re trying to help you avoid more fees, so we’ve created a new email alert system that reminds you when your pawn loan is about to become due.

Our goal is to have our customers retain their merchandise. We don’t want you to lose your items, and with our new email alert, you don’t have to.

Normally, when a loan expires, we send our customers a letter to notify them that their loan has expired. While we are required to send out these notifications, it comes with a cost.

We want to give you an extra heads up before you have to pay any more. So we’re offering this free service to help you save money. With our new email alert program, you’ll receive an email notification 3-5 days before you receive the official notice that your loan has expired.
