The first WWWF World Championship found in an attic in Avon, New York: August 2012

The belt was found by the late Johnny Barend’s widow, Annie, wrapped in a bath towel in an attic, according to Slam! Sports.

The title is the same one that Bruno Sammartino won from Buddy Roger to start the World Wide Wrestling Federation in May 1963.It’s believed to be the United States title brought by Rogers from Ohio to New York for Vince McMahon Sr.’s new world title, Slam! Sports reported.

A second belt — United States Tag Team Champions 1962 — was also discovered.
