This Amazing Discovery In A Farmhouse Is Not What Anyone Expected
A Reddit user in rural Tennessee, known here by his username of Evilenglish, made a discovery that most of us only dream about. While cleaning his grandparents’ house (where, ironically, he spent many a childhood day having Treasure Island read to him), he uncovered a safe buried in the floor of a closet.
The challenge was to get it open. Evilenglish tried a few possible combinations, such as birthdays and social security numbers, but none worked. He eventually hunted down a locksmith who could help.
When Evilenglish shared his story on Reddit, fellow users offered helpful advice. Some even gave him a cursory appraisal of the find, which may be valued at over a thousand dollars.
As if that weren’t enough, Evilenglish and his brother later found another safe hidden inside a coffee table. Inside were a number of pistols and a collection of one dollar bills known as “Barr notes,” rare due to the fact that the Secretary of State, Joseph W. Barr, held the position for only 29 days.
The exploration of this find is still underway, and Evilenglish promises the Internet that he’ll share more photos of the items inside once they’re cleaned up. We’re certainly pretty excited! After all, this is the closest we’ve ever gotten to uncovering buried treasure.
