This couple found HIDDEN TREASURE inside a secret door—What they found will amaze you!

When a couple bought a new house, after moving in, they found a trap door on the floor of their closet. When they dared to open it up and look inside, they discovered a wooden chest locked shut. After picking the lock, what sort of treasure did they find?

When Imgur user, CzarMatt and his wife moved into their new house, everything was a jumbled mess. CzarMatt stacked boxes full of odd electronics in a closet temporarily.

After cleaning out the boxes, his wife found a latch on the floor, indicating some sort of trap door.

“Did you know we had a trap door?” she asked CzarMatt

Really!? CzarMatt was surprised, as he had never noticed it. He tried to open the small door and …

… to their disappointment, there was nothing inside except a dusty old plastic sheet …

… and that’s when they noticed what appeared to be an old lacquered chest

Hauling out the old chest was not as easy as they thought it would be

There was definitely something inside the mysterious chest!

And it was locked tightly as well

There was a keyhole, but of course …

… they didn’t have the key

Luckily, CzarMatt had a few tools on hand to pry open the latch

Almost got it …

Bingo! And voila! There’s treasure inside!

They discovered a smaller chest inside as well

As well as coins of all cultures and ages …

… some over 100 years old

This one was from 1885!

This one-cent piece was from 1859

There were coins from Japan and elsewhere

Besides the treasure, CzarMatt’s wife found something even more special hidden in the lining

Amazing! A Silver Surfer hologram trading card! Remember those?

Then it was time for exploring the smaller chest …

which also had an unusual lock

Luckily, CzarMatt’s wife found a key!

What’s inside?

Just a few cloth bags?

Wow! Amazing antique watches. Whoever owned all this was a real collector!

How much is it all worth?

Amazingly, two of the watches were still working

There was a ring with the old Girl Scout emblem on it

Have you ever found anything like this before? Remember those good ol’ days when we were kids—if you’re old enough to remember the days before kids had videogames—of playing pirates or knights in shining armor, where the goal was to slay the dragon and find the gold? Well, then this takes us back and reminds us that there is nothing quite like a treasure hunt to bring out the child in you!
