Removing the string...
Opening the box...
The box reveals its secrets! A few packages wrapped in what looks like wax paper.
There was a news paper lining the bottom.
Here is the back of the news paper. Nothing significant in the paper. It may have just been there to protect the other contents.
The paper is dated March 25, 1951. This must be near the time the box was hidden.
Three packages...Now I am really interested! this looks green! There's money in here! I am guessing a thousand or more! Is that a twenty?
The full contents.
These are all twenties! There may be a couple thousand here!
Full contents revealed! The second package didn't have any twenties. It was all fifties! What is going on here? There could be 5 grand here!. Wait!!!! The third package is 100s!!!!
Some of the bills were rarer than others. Some brown notes, a gold certificate and some star notes nearly uncirculated. All bills were from 1928-1934.
