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?

3 years ago i was working for a firm in the Truman Brewery at Brick Lane. This firms warehouse was directly opposite the entrance to another large, near dilapidated warehouse (if anyone knows the area well it was the warehouse where that autopsy by the german doctor, and subsequent exhibition took place).

Anyway, being outside for a crafty smoke and being inquisitive in nature I decide to move the makeshift staircase out of the way (quick and easy timber construction) and what do i find? A large red trunk, 3ft by 3ft and 2ft deep.

So I drag the trunk (for it's far too heavy to lift) into our warehouse and open it (it wasn't even locked).
Inside I found loads of Ampex 456 2-inch master reels for the record label Acid Jazz.
And which two reels did i take for myself, and still have at home? The ones containing the original masters of Jamiroquai's first musical offerings, that's what

Very proud i am too
