One of the big mysteries of the century might have been unveiled. Georgia man Cliff Kluge thinks he has stumbled upon a copy of Coca-Cola's top secret recipe.

Kluge, an antiquarian, claims he purchased a set of papers together with his wife from a recent estate. Among them there was a soda recipe from 1943 that Kluge assures is none other than the Coca-Cola formula.

He believes it is the real one because of several allusions to Coke in the paper, as well as being very similar to the recipe for Coca-Cola that the radio program "This American Life" discovered in 2011.

Coca-Cola hasn't responded to the claim, but Ted Ryan, archivist for Coca-Cola said that he thinks the recipe is a formula for a "cola-type drink," but not Coca-Cola itself.

Kluge has posted the paper on eBay for a starter bid of $5 million, or alternatively, a "Buy Now" price of $15 million. So far, there are no bidders.
