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?

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.
