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?

My Favourtite Find
A few years ago, Mojo Pete and I moved into a pokey little flat above a TV repair shop in Harborne.

The Landlord was a lazy s*d, the place was filthy but the collection of old cathode ray tubes and other electronic gunk out the back seemed charmingly rustic at the time of moving in.

The previous tennants were bigger slobs than we were and really left it in a mess, but didn't leave behind anything but a cheap sh*tty plasticiky plate, that made a nasty noise when you knocked it and tacky gold effect around the edge.

Said plate was left on a shelf for a year until we made a run for it, and decided to take it to act as our sh*tty plate when sh*tty plates are called for, like resting paintbrushes, etc.

Plate was treated as such, until one day I was washing it and happened to read the mark on the back.

"Royal Doulton Gold Mosiac Fine China - for Marks & Spencers"

It now holds the French Fancies when the vicar comes to visit. We call it the Wedding china :)
