Have you ever found anything of value?

I was reading about the California couple that found 10million dollars worth of gold coins buried in their yard.

That stuff NEVER happens to me....lol

I was just wondering if you have ever found anything of value before?

I found a very nice gold chain (worth at least 300) once in the bathroom of the office building where I used to work - I left a note in the mirror and some lady came to claim it - she never even said thanks.  I'm still beating myself over the head over the stuff we gave away / sold for pennies at a garage sale when we had to sell my grand mother's house.  Stuff we were laughing at I saw on some antique show a few months later and they were worth a freckin' fortune

"Found" is probably the wrong word, but my family owns a stock that at one time was worth nothing (and often cost them money each year in taxes) and is now paying pretty well.

A great aunt invested in some random oil stock several decades ago. When she died, all the shares were split between my mother and her siblings.

The thing has always paid share holders "dividends" I think quarterly, and these checks would come in the mail for like, I dont' know, $16 or $32. My mom always made a big joke out of it.

Well. When the price of oil hit $100 a barrel (and continued climbing) this stock surprised everyone. It is now providing my parents with a very comfortable retirement.

I never have but my grandma who lived in my house before me found a bag of money in the vent system and took a trip to Finland with it. And just so no one bashes me. My family is the only people who ever lived in this house so either it was her husband who hid it or her dad who hid it, both passed away many years before the money was found.

86 $ in a grocery store parking lot. Just the cash... no wallet or anything.

I found $5,000 dollars under some newspaper in my mother in law's closet.  I had to tell everyone and split in three ways but that was okay....
