PHOTOS: Couple Opens Floor Safe Found During Remodel

- A couple in Phoenix has gone viral after sharing their story of finding what appears to be hidden treasure.

Their story, which originally appeared on theChive, has now gained attention on Imgur as well.

The posts claim that the couple discovered an old piece of paper with a safe code on it when they moved into their home two years ago. Despite their search efforts, a safe was never found, but they kept the code handy just in case.

Finally, a good, safe, story.


It came in handy recently when the couple began a remodel on their kitchen.

Under the kitchen floor, they discovered a safe.

They pulled out the old combination and gave it a try. It worked.

Inside, the couple discovered a 55-year-old bottle of bourbon, and $51,080 in old bills, and a book which appeared to contain clues.

According to theChive article, the couple has not yet decided what to do with their findings, but say they hope to discover the original owner.

An inscription on a photo inside of the book has led the couple to believe the man's name was Alan.
