A young couple while doing a DIY project in their kitchen discovered a treasure trove under the floor.  They instantly decided to share this amazing find on their Imgur account.

When they have first moved in the house, they found  a safe code in the back of a medicine cabinet but never found a safe.  After many attempts, they opened the safe, who by their opinion is about 10-20 years old, and found piles of cash, an old book, and a rare bottle of bourbon.

One of them wrote on Imgur: “We stared in disbelief. Time stood still. I started to reach in the safe and Eddie yelled, ‘Wait it might be booby trapped!’ I’m still laughing at that one.”

The cash is mostly in old $100 bills, and the bourbon is a bottle of James E Pepper, who is the inventor of the ‘Old Fashioned’.

It looks to be about $50,000. Mostly old $100 bills. Ok, we totally counted it. $51,080!

There is a bottle of James E Pepper. Wikipedia time!!!! James E. Pepper is credited as the inventor of the “Old Fashioned”The seal is still unbroken. Tax stamp reads 1960, aged 6 years. My wiki research suggests this Bourbon is as about as rare as it comes. We like bourbon, a lot.

The book was more of a mystery, sill is. A Guide for the Perplexed by E.F. Schumacher. Published in 1977. Page 1 – A photo of a really sexy Gregory Peck looking dude. I’m not a treasure hunter but pages 1, 7, 11, and 14 contain, what appear to be, a series of clues.


On the back of the photo is a note which reads, Alan, I have a book you must read. I’ve underlined a few key passages. Your friend, Vincent.

So, the lucky couple in an attempt to save some money managed to make a $51,000.

This surely is an amazing find, and we are almost sure that most of you now think about DIY renovation in your kitchen, don’t ya?
