This is a question Hidden Treasure

My landlord had some builders in to remove a staircase in an outbuilding when a rusty biscuit tin fell out from under the woodwork.

What wonders were in this hidden treasure box? Two live hand grenades and 40 rounds of ammunition. From WW2. I've never seen builders run before.

What hidden treasures have you uncovered?

Hidden Treasure
A friend rented a room in Swansea, although there was many rooms they were all empty bar one, another male tenant. When bored exporing the attic the only items up there was a wedding dress and a moth eaten wedding dress.
We often expected to come back to find the other resident riding the rocking horse ready for marrage a sort of "Wedding Tubbs".

"Edward, will heaven be like Swansea?"
"Yes, only bigger."

Weird photo negatives
They were taking down the old Hilton in Malta to rebuild a new one. I was around 11 at the time. So me and the friends went exploring. We found some very weird photo negatives, a key and a log book.

Pretty interesting but weird none the less.
Nothing to write home about indeed.

Me and my little sister
We were playing behind the shed in our garden and found a mouse. So we picked it up on a plastic spade and went to show our mum.
"Look mum, we've found a really big mouse!"
She promptly screamed at us.
It was a huge rat.

Leprechan but no treasure
I once found a leprechan and I asked him to tell me where his pot of gold was. He told me that he'd blown it all on drugs and women while on a stag weekend in Amsterdam. Horny little bugger...

When I was much younger
A friend and I were digging in the ground with sticks (as you do) when we found that we were digging into an anthill and flying ants kept appearing from little holes in the ground

We crushed them all with our sticks...

Penknife and Flag
Found a small penknife in a disused site once. My parents wouldn't buy one for me so I was dead happy with my find.
Also found this black and white flag in a quarry. We were going to adopt as our gang flag. And i put it up on a pole on top of our shed. When my dad saw it he nearly had a fit. Unbeknowns to us it was an IRA flag, oops.

Buried treasure
When the 20p first came out I used to find lots of them on the beach in Paignton.

I was told when I was a wee lad that they had a treasure hunt in Blackpool whereby a hoard of silver cutlery was buried and the first person to find it got a prize. Except for the final year it happened and the organisers couldn't re-locate the box and so it lies buried in the sand. Could be another parent-child lie, or it could be real.

Not very exciting
but my dad found some glass negatives in the garage of his cottage, from the end of the 19th Century, of the area he lives in now. This one's my favourite.
Glass negatives
Bet that woman, in her long skirt and corset, stands more chance of Wimbledon success than that tosser Henman.

batteries covered in stickytape + wrapped in string. xmas time circa 1995
Sort of uncovered treasure.
I called it Treasure Dipping. In postboxes. I plundered £30 from various xmas cards I hauled from the postbox via my fashioned sticky fishing implement.

I'm still waiting for Karma to get me back for this.

While looking through my Dad's things....

recently bought a house
and found an old wardrobe in one of the bedrooms; inside was a large sealed sack.
I was so excited thinking of all the things i could buy as it was bound to be full of cash or something else valuable, so i quickly opened it.

It was full of fluff.


(EDIT: why would someone save a bag o fluff ??)

I once found an envelope.
There was a kid's birthday card and a tenner in it. Score.

an old workmen's shed!!!
while exploring my aunt & uncle's new residence (crumbly house and death-trap barn) we found an old shed in the garden, which had all sorts of amazing stuff in it... traps, a moldy felt hat, a big rusty knife, and best of all a WOODEN TOOTHBRUSH! we were as excited as mexican jumping beans when we found the pièce de résistance... a note scribbled on the back of the door in illiterate gardener scribble which went along the lines of 'those them basterds they sacked me they did' by "edward wilkins, gardener, 1935". That, to a 10 year old, was sooo, like, toootaally rad, man.

Oh, and after I had been in Prague a year hanging with me gran and learning czech, i came home and, looking for my birth certificate, found a letter in czech from the 60s informing my grandparents that my dad was being sentenced to three years prison 'in absentia' for defecting... plus a rather graphic love letter from his old girlfriend... guess he never figured anyone would learn enough czech to understand it... sucker!!!

Edit: reading the rest of the posts, i see i have once more been a tad overzealous. sooo uncool.

Ahh to be on the 1st page
errrrrmmm....once found something

Actually, I regularly find money, just lying on the ground, $5, $20. Once a $50 bill. I believe this makes me serendipitous.

Several years ago, myself and a friend were rummaging around in his dad's office. We found a briefcase and set ourselves the task of using spy like skills to crack the code to unlock it. We failed so resorted to brute force. Upon openning the case we found a container of hormone tablets and some she-male pron! :-(
Not really hidden treasure but worth telling none the less.

A plastic spiderman in my back yard.
I once found a bag of office supplies round the back of my old cub scout hut too...calculators, pens, markers, rulers etc. I had supplies at school for years :)
[edit] This was the first sensible post, loopylorenzo, you cockrimming fuckmuncher. Just 'cause I titled it "4th!" doesn't mean I don't have something to say.

bastard :)

as for hidden tresures, i once found a scratchcard with a quid on it! does that count? i used it to buy another card (never done so before, but figured my luck might be in) which won me fuckall..

also : my ex-gfs g-spot. no-one had found it before, see, and it was quite well hidden. she appreciated the length (see what i did there??)

actually finding a girlies g'spot is LITERALLY treasure, as if no-ones done it before,they're willing to do *anything* in order to get you to find it again. and i mean *anything*...

edit : i hate you too robble
edit2: lemonymilleniumbaboon, this post is just as valid as yours. swivel
edit3: after all that i'm first. woo!
