Making an enormous effort not to open the mysterious box the moment he discovered it, branik12 searched for a camera and documented the entire opening process. Inside his mysterious box he could find some pages of a vintage newspaper and some packages wrapped in what appeared to be waxed paper.

Assuming that the original owner of the box had kept his belongings next to the newspaper of the same day, the contents of the box would date from 1951.

The newspaper sheets seemed to be pages dedicated to sports news with a lot of interesting things of the time. In them you could see a cigarette ad "Light" and a part dedicated to a pin-up girl trying to learn to play bowling.

However, although the newspaper was very interesting, it was not what he called it, it really aroused the man's curiosity. It was very difficult not to look at those packages that showed a premonitory color green.

Even before unwrapping the contents, branik12 knew that they were dollar bills. He was optimistic thinking he would find at least $ 1,000 hidden in that box.

His desire seemed to be about It became a reality when he unwrapped the first package and found out that it was a dollar bill from the mid-twentieth century.

He then unwrapped the next package and discovered that it was composed entirely of $ 50 bills.

Finally, in the middle of the ecstasy and not knowing very well what to expect from the third package, he discovered that it contained only $ 100 bills.

At that time he did not believe what was in front of him. It was like winning the lottery, which I say, better! That discovery caught Branik12 and his wife completely by surprise.

With shaking hands and holding his nerves, the lucky discoverer told that he had a fortune of around 20,000 dollars. Issued in 1928 and 1934, some of them could be worth even more than 100 dollars.

After investigating a Little, branik12 discovered that some of the bills had brown and golden marks that made them a rarity, causing their value to skyrocket. In total, the incredible find is estimated at $ 23,000.

Currently, he and his wife are still in the hands of lawyers to determine if the money really belongs to them, thankfully, they look quite optimistic, since the owner of the house seems to have disappeared decades ago.

There is no way to know the history behind that money, who knows if it is not looking at money obtained by the mafia or the robbery of a bank? I wish I had that same luck!
