YAPHANK, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Authorities in Suffolk County are looking to reunite a possibly stolen antique chalice with its rightful owner.
Police said the chalice was recently pawned by a 24-year-old whose family had no connection to the antique.
The engraving on the chalice indicates it was a gift in 1922 to a couple to celebrate a 25th wedding anniversary.
