Man Finds $3.7M in Gold in his New House – #HuttonPulitzer 

“It was under the furniture, under piles of linen, in the bathroom … everywhere,” an auctioneer says.

The AFP reports a man inherited a house in France from a deceased relative only to discover $3.7 million worth of hidden gold. “It was under the furniture, under piles of linen, in the bathroom … everywhere,” an auctioneer says.

It started when the unnamed-yet-very-lucky man started moving furniture and found a box of gold coins attached to the bottom of one piece. He continued poking around and soon found an old whisky box with more gold pieces hidden inside.

By the time the treasure hunt ended, he had found 5,000 gold pieces, two gold bars, and 37 gold ingots. The entire haul weighed more than 200 pounds and was reportedly bought during the 1950s and 1960s.
