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?

I've had...
one night where I found many things. Twas a Friday night and I was intending to get incredibly smashed.

1st - found a wallet on a table. Kept hold of it, to hand in to the police after finishing me pint. Owner runs back in, asks if I'd seen it, so I produce it! Being honest, I hadn't taken anything out, (there was about £60 in there plus cards) and the bloke gave me a tenner straight off. Result.

2nd - In a club, sat down to try to hold the room still - what do I see? A mobile phone. I pick this up, look around and pocket it. Spend an amusing 10 minutes ringing up people in the memory telling them I've found the phone, all of whom says "Really? That's nice." Leave the phone switched on. The next day I get a phone call on the phone, which I answer and as I'm going to be in town again later that day arrange to meet. Girl was amazed that I'd answered and was going to give her her phone back.

3rd - That same Friday night, sat waiting for a taxi. A group of girls come along, sit down, jump in a taxi and leave. As I go to get the next, I notice she's left her wallet. From her driving licence I realised I was going to be driving past hers later on Saturday, so attempted to track down her phone number (ex-directory). I ended up phoning her neighbour and asking them to go round next door... No reward, although she did offer. She was rather attractive and I wanted to appear chivalrous. :D Although that didn't work either.

An evening of finding stuff, but being surprisingly honest as well. Shame it doesn't happen more often.
