TULSA, Oklahoma -- Cash and stock worth almost $300,000 was claimed over the 10 days of the Tulsa State Fair, say officials from the Oklahoma Treasure's Office.

The State Treasurer set up a Pot of Gold booth to help fairgoers search for unclaimed property.

Unclaimed property includes bank accounts, security deposits, old paychecks, overpayments, royalties, rebates, stocks and bonds.
