Good News: Florida Workers Find 2,000 Silver Coins During Home Demolition

Police in Florida have seized 60 pounds of silver coins that had been stashed for decades inside the walls of a recently demolished home. According to officials in St. Cloud, Fla., glass pickle jars holding more than 2,000 coins shattered while city workers were leveling a 1915 bungalow, turning the demolition into a momentary slot machine. “It was like a treasure hunt — the more you dug the more you found,” one of those workers, Melissa Howes, told the Orlando Sentinel. “We thought we might be able to keep it like finders keepers, but it was city property.” It is believed the coins may have been hidden inside the walls by a former owner during the Great Depression.
