DIMOLA IN THE NY POST: Trashman bonds with history


NEW YORK - FOR SUNDAY NEWS: Nick DiMola, owner of DiMola Bros Interior Demolition and Rubbish Removal in his office surrounded by the many antiques he's found over the years in the Ridgewood section of Queens, NY on Friday, March 16, 2012.

One man’s trash is another man’s war treasure.

Queens rubbish remover Nick DiMola is sitting on $2,000 in US bonds from World War II — relics he unknowingly rescued while cleaning out a Brooklyn estate.

DiMola saves thousands of curious castoffs in a Ridgewood warehouse. So when the descendants of Mario Anthony DeVito chucked his belongings, DiMola took home a pile of junk.

He later opened a box and discovered a spotless stack of 20 war bonds.

Today, they’re worth $100 apiece, but only the original owner whose name appears on the bonds — or beneficiaries of his will — can redeem them.

Collectors, however, are forking over about $50 each for such bits of Americana.
