On Halloween I was walking to a party and I found a joint in a little envelope on the ground, and it gave me the idea for this thread, even though it's not the most valuable thing I've ever found.


A few months ago we found a really nice dresser type thing on the street that probably would be worth about a hundred bucks, it's in our kitchen right now.

Other than that, I once found a bike. It was a pretty crappy bike but probably worth like 40 bucks. What have you found?

One time I rummaging through my apartment looking for 5 dollars so I could walk down to the gas station to get a pack of ports. It took me about 3 hours to find enough change to equal that amount. I was pretty broke at the time due to it being summer and not having a full time job. Once I bagged the change up, I took off headed for the gas station. One the way there I stepped on a nail and it went through the bottom of my flip flops and into my heal. It hurt really bad, but all in all wasn't that big of a deal. I continued on. I was walking with my head down because I was paranoid of stepping on something else. Upon arrival to the gas station I found a crumpled up $100 bill laying on the ground. I went inside and asked if anyone had lost some money. No one could tell me the amount missing, so I kept it.

I walked to the liquor store to get a bottle of Jameson with my new found wealth. With the thrill of going from broke to having spending cash, I forgot about the nail wound. By this time it was bleeding pretty bad and I didn't notice. I walked into the liquor store leaving blood footprints behind me. The cashier freaked out, and I apologized. I offered to clean it up, and he just told me to pay and get out.

From the liquor store I just walked back to my apartment and treated my wound. I then smoked a cigarette and drank a glass of Jameson on the rocks.

I once found a $50 note lying on the ground in a carpark probably worth like 50 bucks.

I bought Pokemon cards with it and an icecream.

I found a $20 on the ground once.

In Germany I bought a hat and inside was an East German newspaper from the 80s. That was pretty cool.

One day I went to a pub with a friend that came to Australia to visit, I went to the ATM to pay for the Guinness I ordered, and never ended up taking any money out of the machine...because there was $300 in the dispenser.

A walkie-talkie from the forties or something when I was about seven or eight. The other kids on the street and I used to use it to listen to cell phone conversations.

It was remarkably funny and interesting to listen to. Even mundane conversations are exciting when you're not supposed to be listening to them. I'd do it still if my mom hadn't given it to Goodwill about a month and a half after we found it.

Ha Ha the fun that was old UHF radios. It's scary how easy it is to listen in on that stuff and how secure people think we are.

One time during training in the Army we picked up a conversation between two teenage girls talking about school or something. OMG for realz!

Once I found a 50 dollar bill in the shoe department at a local supermarket. It was folded up and I thought it was only a 5 at the time I saw it. It was too out in the open to pick up so I slyly walked right over it and managed to slide it out of sight with my shoe then picked it up and went to a different area of the store. When I pulled it out of my pocket and saw that it was a 50 I accidentally said "holy shit!" out loud and a couple people in the aisle next to me turned and looked so I played it off by saying "A sale on M&Ms! Sweet!" I used it to buy some CDs.

The other day at work I had someone pay for a $4.50 order in half-dollar coins. After they left though I discovered that one of the half-dollar coins was in fact a 5 franc coin. Almost the exact same size and color. So I took fifty cents out of my pocket to put in my till and kept the 5 franc coin. I plan on carrying it around and flipping it to decide on things.

About a year or so ago I was digging through boxes in my room looking to get rid of crap I don't need when I found a 5 pound lead ingot in one of the boxes. It's maybe worth a few bucks in scrap prices but from what I've seen on eBay it could go for as much as 10 bucks. The strangest thing is that it was in a box of my stuff that I recognized. The ingot, however, is a mystery. I have no idea where it came from nor do any of my family. I put it in a plastic bag (because I was worried about lead poisoning) and stuck it somewhere in my room. It'd make a great paperweight. Or I could melt it down and turn it into the world's worst dildo.

Once as a kind in 3rd grade I found 30 dollars on the sidewalk on my way home from school. The other day at work someone left their wallet, in it was like 50 bucks, a few creditcards. I unfortunately turned it in.

I collect fossils and I have collected some that are fairly valuable. I guess that counts as something I found, since it generally consists of finding them in rivers or quarries.

Years ago I gave away a few of my father's paintings to an acquaintance. After my father died, I came to regret that heavily. Recently, the acquaintance died. I found out a few days ago his mom called my mom, to ask her about these paintings that had our last name on them.

So in a roundabout way...I found something valuable, again.
