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 so much a treasure found but a treasure given away
I must have been about 21, fresh from Uni, my childhood something to forget I ever went through.
On returning home, my Mum demanded I have a clear out, so I decided to part with my entire Star Wars collection of figures, the milennium falcon, Bobba Fett's slave one, a Darth Vader helmet figure holder from the states that I got as a returned-from-holiday present, a ridiculous amount of crap. I decided to pass them on to my step-nephew as a charitable gesture. Truth be told, I couldn't bear to give them all away (this was in pre-eBay days, and pre-episodes 1-3 euphoria) so this was the next best thing, passing everything on to a younger relation for him to enjoy.

I next saw him about a year later so I casually enquired as to how he was getting on with the toys. "Oh, we threw them all away" came his refreshingly honest early-teenager reply. Limited edition figures, Yoda's dagobah system, it would be worth a fortune if the cunt didn't bin it all.

That was nearly ten years ago and it still pains me to recall it. Moral: fuck charity.
