A 300-year-old manuscript that was found in a heap of garbage during house cleaning is expected to bring six-figures at an auction next month, BBC reports.

The 18th Century, handwritten Passover Haggadah was discovered in a cardboard box in a garage in Macclesfield, England.

The unique work is attracting attention from Jewish communities in the U.S. and Israel.
