    With inflation that’s about a quarter million.

    people, PLEASE don’t hoard modern money. NOTHING circulating will be worth any more than face value in your lifetime.

    Some folks just didn't trust banks. Wonder why it was left there? Stolen loot, drug money, small bank heist? What was on the tapes? We want to know!
    Great article; thanks for posting it.

    When my wifes grandmother was on her deathbed she whispered in my wife's ear to find the loose stone on her fireplace mantle and get the cash that she had stored their. She had lived in that tiny old home for most of her 98 years. My wife did as she was told and found bill after bill rolled up tiny as a toothpick in that fireplace mantle. Most were notes from the 40's and 50's and all tallied up almost $600.00 when all was said and done.

    When my brother and his wife got married they rented a small dilapidated house owned by her strange uncle Arthur. Arthur told them to never move the stove but never told them not to renovate the bathroom. When they pulled out the medicine chest off the wall, about two or three coffee cans worth of silver coins spilled out from behind. For years the uncle had been stashing coins in the used razor slot in the back of the cabinet. They held off moving the stove until he died and she inherited the house. They found nothing. They always joked that they were afraid they would find a dead body. Arthur was a strange duck.

    Love hearing stories like this. I, myself, have stashed a few treasures under my wood stove hearth for someone to find in the far off (I hope) future. I'm also known as a "strange duck" by some. LOL

    Just about everything Uncle Arthur did was odd. The stash was something I can relate to.
