While Cleaning His Grandparents’ House In Rural Tennessee, One Man Discovered A Safe Hidden In A Closet. And Yes, It Did Contain A Treasure…

Reddit user Evilenglish has shared with us the amazing discovery he made while cleaning his grandparents’ house in rural Tennessee. Hidden under the floor of a closet he found a safe.

Naturally, Evilenglish wanted to open the safe, but the thing being what it is wasn’t making it easy on him. He tried a few combinations he could think of, including birthdays and social security numbers, but none of them worked. Finally, Evilenglish was forced to get a locksmith to help.

And sure enough, the safe did not disappoint. Our adventurer found a pile of boxes inside which were full of rolls of coins and bills. Unfortunately, a lot of the money locked up inside had suffered from water damage, caused by a pipe leakage some years earlier.

The coins, however, were protected, as were the silver bars piled inside. And underneath the money collection, Evilenglish found a rusty tool chest which was full of watches and jewelry.

Amazingly, Evilenglish and his brother later discovered another safe in the same house, this one hidden inside a coffee table. That one contained a collection of one-dollar bills known as “Barr notes”, which are rare, because the Secretary of State, Joseph W. Barr, held the position for only 29 days. The second safe also produced a number of pistols.
