COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — They say every cloud has a silver lining, but one Columbus man is still looking for his. Gil Brano is missing more than $1,000 worth of silver somewhere in the United States Postal Service system, and after getting nowhere in trying to track it down, he decided, he better call Jackson.
“I am far from the only person that has come across this,” Gil Brano said. He was hoping to cross his palm with some silver last year by turning in a solid silver brick he owned into some liquid cash.
“I was hoping to use that money for a vacation,” Brano said.
Brano went through American Precious Metals Exchange based in Oklahoma City. The company was going to pay him about $1,472 in exchange for his silver.
