Sleeping beauty had some surprises!!

After taking out 3/4 of the birch panelling and some insulation, I did run across a few vintage mementos if you will. These were actually found under the kitchen cabinet along with a 1945 penny. Not the cigar box filled with old notes(cash), but nevertheless, a fun find!

It is like a treasure hunt. In our old 1979 trailer we found some very old canned drinks behind the cabinet drawers at the kitchen sink. A couple still had the drink and the others had pin holes and the drink was gone. Have fun digging. We never found the box of gold or anything else.

If you take those old notes and coins to a collector, depending on their condition... You might find the project costing a lot less.

Try google: Coin Collectors ZIP (Where ZIP is your zip code)
