A Couple Found ‘Secret’ Lunchbox From 1951 And It Changed Their Lives


A Tale of Secret Lunchbox: The anonymous couple stunned one and all by posting several photos on Imgur with the username Branik12, detailing their “wild ride.” This couple have been staying in a 1940s house that they had bought 2 years ago.


When the couple decided to remodel it, they found two dust-covered old lunch boxes hidden into the ceiling of their basement. When they opened the lunch box, they got the biggest surprise of their life.

“I took the box outside and gathered the wife. It has something inside, but not heavy like coins or gold bars. Might get lucky though. Could be old sports cards?” he wondered.


When they opened the box, they first found an old newspaper in it, dated March 25, 1951. But when they removed the newspaper, there was unbelievable amount of cash.

“These are all twenties! There may be a couple thousand here! We are freaking out at this point. This doesn’t happen to us! What do we do? Where are the cameras?” he recalled.

“The second package didn’t have any twenties. It was all fifties! What is going on here? There could be 5 grand here!. Wait!!!! The third package is 100s!!!! This is out of control!!!”

“Some of the bills were rarer than others. Some brown notes, a gold certificate and some star notes nearly uncirculated. All bills were from 1928-1934. What do we do now? Is it ours? What is it worth?”

“This was a wild ride for us and I hope you all enjoyed it too. We are boring people and have been dumping our extra money to pay off our mortgage and that is where this money will go too.”

Reportedly, the couple consulted a lawyer and were informed they could keep the money. Now, the couple plans to pay the loan and live an even better life.
