(NEWSER) – Inheriting a house from hoarders isn't so bad when the stuff they hoarded is ... a whole bunch of gold.
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.
