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?

Australian TV hostess...
...moved into a house in a "nice" Brisbane suburb in 1988 and looking through the attic unearthed a collection of vinyl LPs.
Pretty ordinairy really except that they were all by a well known (in his time) Australian musician and all signed with a message to a well known TV hostess. There was also a small collection of mildly amorous love letters.

A neighbour told me that the TV hostess had owned our house in the early 70s so we contacted Channel 9 and she contacted us.
We met and gave everything back - she thought she had lost them in the great flood of 1974 and was well pleased to get them back.
"Sentimental value I guess?" I asked her. "Oh no" she replied "the albums are worth a fortune as he never gave autographs. I'll probably sell them".

Nice reward for me of $zero and learning how honesty doesn't pay.
I reckon I could have made a few bucks selling the love letters to the gossip mags too.
