Man Makes Unexpected Discovery While Renovating His Grandparents House

When one Tennessee man was little, he says his grandmother used to read him 'Treasure Island.’ It sparked the man's lifelong dream to find a real treasure someday. Thanks to his grandparents, again, that dream came true.

The man, known as 'EvilEnglish' on Reddit, says his grandparents passed away and left him their old farmhouse. He went to do some cleaning and renovations when he discovered something under the carpets: a secret safe.

It took EvilEnglish days to crack the safe open, and he was finally able to do it with the help of a locksmith. He was shocked to find that buried treasure he always dreamed about.

His grandparents hoarded cash, jewelry, bars of silver and coin collections. Some of the contents of the safe were damaged by an old pipe that burst years ago, but most was well packaged and in good condition.

Digging through his 'loot' was an exciting moment in the social media poster's life.
