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?

treasure I'm too scared to discover
Apparently, there's a couple of those big wooden carved mask things in our (very small) attic, (as well as lots of bugs, dust and a pre-war tent) that my parents bought in the 70's. I really want them as they sound quite cool, and in my mind I've exaggerated them to the size of that massive wooden thing that Mr. Burns buys the Simpsons in the one where Bart gets run over....though they are probably the size of a shoebox or summat crap. However, the discovery of these would involve climbing into the attic, and as I am shit-scared of spiders, beetles and other assorted crawling things, this would not be a good move, considering the way my dad has described the attic to me....maybe he's trying to scare me away.....hmm.
I haven't actually found anything that amazing, just the usual broken bottle/obviously-worth-millions discovery or broken bottles and crap like that as a small child, which is surprising as i used to spend loads of time at my nans/aunts (very) old house, which had a big garden with a sort of small forest at the bottom, and some old and dessicated sheds, with grimy windows and holes in the doors.....it was a bit creepy actually. If my (great)aunt and uncle hadn't kicked it, I could go there and have a rummage around now.....bollocks. And if I did, I bet I'd find stuff worth...ooh, millions.......
