The government is about to sell off some of the hidden treasure of a Chicago mobster.

This is the latest installment in the long saga of Frank “The Breeze” Calabrese and a stash of cash that he was hiding in his Oak Brook, Illinois home.

At the Oak Brook home of imprisoned mob boss Frank Calabrese Sr., down in the basement covered by a family portrait, authorities found Calabrese’s secret hiding place. Loose diamonds, other expensive gems and finished jewelry had been stashed behind the drywall and the between the studs.

Now we know how big of a bounty. Calabrese had dozens of $1,000 and $500 bills, printed in the 1920s and 30s, that the government is about to auction to help satisfy the mobster’s fines and court-ordered restitution.
