GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (AP) -- A Wisconsin priest is auctioning off his late mother's collection of old silver pieces to raise money for a homeless shelter.

The Rev. Guy Blair donated 14 silver items, including five sugar urns dating back to the 1790s. Other pieces include vases and coffee and tea pots.

Tim Rigdon, a director at Heritage Auctions, says the sum of the items' minimum bids is $21,000.
