image for A Maine Man Finds A $1.7 Million Oyster Pearl In A Can of Sardines
This is the can of sardines that contained the amazing oyster pearl.

BAR HARBOR, Maine - Purdue Skipbrewster, 51, has been fishing the waters of the Atlantic ocean for 29 years and in that time he has caught more than his share of sardines.

In fact, back in 2007, Skipbrewster was named The Top Sardine Fisherman in The United States.

He said he used the $1,700 award money to get his wife, Brenda, 54, the liposuction procedure she had been wanting for 9 years.

Skipbrewster has once again made the news as he has just learned that one of the sardines he caught last week was found to have miraculously contained an oyster pearl which is estimated to be worth $1.7 million.

The can of sardines was purchased at a Tall Timbers Supermarket in Bar Harbor by an unemployed molasses taster named Talbot Dexterdill.

SIDENOTE: After finding out that Purdue Skipbrewster was the fisherman who had caught the lucky sardine, Talbot Dexterdill contacted him and wrote him out a check of appreciation in the amount of $8,000.
