Lucky Pak woman gets 3 gold teeth in pocket of used coat

"I found three teeth made of gold while I was searching the pockets of the coat," said Erfan Kanwal, a mother of four from Gilgit in the Northern Areas.

Kanwal trades in used clothes, buying them from markets across the country and re-selling them to earn a living."I go to Rawalpindi, Peshawar and Lahore with my husband and purchase clothes and other items of daily use," she said.

Kanwal said that she sold the gold teeth for Rs 150,000 after having them weighed by a jeweller.This was the maximum amount anyone had offered her, she said.

She said the money was "a gift from God" as she needed funds to build a house.
"I have always wanted to have my own house and so I have been saving up for the past several years," she said.
