ATLANTA - A stolen letter written by Christopher Columbus turned up in Atlanta.
And it's apparently been here for at least 14 years.
The 8-page letter was sent to Spain’s King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella in 1942.
It was kept in the Vatican Library, but stolen at some point and replaced with a forged copy.
An Atlanta art collector purchased it in 2004 for $875,000, not knowing it had been stolen.
The owner had an expert look at it earlier this year and realized it was the stolen copy.
It has since been returned.
