Basilica of St. Francis in Siena
Thieves stole a gold ciborium containing consecrated hosts. They dumped the hosts in the poor box. The recovered hosts were cleaned but still not suitable for consumption, so it was decided that the hosts would be placed in a new ciborium and left to deteriorate. However, the hosts remained fresh for decades and can still be seen in the (now) Basilica of St. Francis in Siena, Italy.
