Imgur user CzarMatt has found a small trap door in his new house's closet, revealing the coolest treasure chest you've ever seen.
“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!
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
