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?

as one of my summer jobs as a teenager i worked for a cleaning company in the nearby town. one of the jobs i was asked to do was to clear out the house that belonged to a recently deceased old lady who lived just up the road from my house. in itself, this was a good thing as i didn't have to fanny about with arranging a lift into town and could even have a bit of a lie-in.

anyway, we'd pretty much cleared the whole house out and scrubbed the years' worth of built-up filth she'd managed to accumulate when i noticed a little room tucked away upstairs that i'd missed. inside was a big old trunk which turned out to be full of classical shellac 78s in collectors' binders from the ear. as a spotty youth without a turntable i decided to sell them and got thirty quid from a guy who answered my diamond free ad.

having since become a vinyl nut, i'm kicking myself. still, thirty quid at that age was a decent amount of cash. fingers crossed that i'll discover a similar stash again now that i've learned enough to appreciate it.

your mum seemed quite happy with my length last night.
