Reddit user Eagle206 wrote that a friend who worked at an old school discovered a fully furnished apartment from the early 1900s when they had to repair a leaky pipe.

Boxes of toys…and pinecones
Finding pinecones in the attic usually signals a big problem with your roof, but in the case of Reddit user R12356, it meant something different. When they went about insulating their attic, the contractor discovered an additional portion of the attic that was sealed off. After opening it up, they discovered 15 boxes of pinecones. It’s presumed the pinecones were collected for crafting projects. In another part of the home, behind a piece of drywall coming off the wall, there lay vintage toys from the 50s.
Bible with some history
A new homeowner in Berkshire, United Kingdom discovered a Bible from the 18th century in their attic. But that wasn’t the only surprise. In the back of the Bible, the early owners hand wrote their history. The village church dates back to the 12th century and kept records of people so the homeowners were able to track down the descendants of the Bible owners and give them the Bible. The Bible find is priceless—but these 14 attic finds turned into serious cash.
