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?

Not me but
My best friend's second cousins ex-roommate's chiropodist’s adopted Pilipino sister's pet goldfish’s former owner's great great granny...

Okay, my ex-girlfriend's dad found some interesting buried treasure shortly after moving into a nice old country house. Realising there should be a cupboard or at least a space under the stairs; he tore away at the wallpaper to discover a door. Beyond the door was steps, which led to a cellar what was probably several hundred years old (there was an external window a fair way below ground level) The cellar wasn't a cellar, it was an old house that had been built on. The cellar had a spring running through it and was about two foot deep of water. Realising he was directly under the living room, he looked up.

They then spent the next several weeks living in the dining room while the non-existent floor was being replaced, as pretty much the only thing that stopped them falling through the floor to the cellar was the carpet.

It’s now full of homebrew wine and booze.
