Shocked? So were the owners of the house. They expected to see anything but guns and bags packed with money. When they counted the coins, their total value was about $15,000. Did their nice grandma rob a bank when she was young? Was it some kind of Bonnie and Clyde story? They could only guess since no one knew about the safe or about Grandma’s little secret.
An extremely rare edition of Action Comics, in which Superman makes his first appearance, sat in a Minnesota home’s wall for over 75 years. In 2013, while doing renovations in a house, contractor David Gonzalez found the comic book among newspapers used as insulation in the walls of the house. The comic book was sold several weeks after its discovery for $175,000 to an unknown buyer. Unfortunately, Mr. Gonzalez ripped the back cover of the comic, which cost him almost $50,000 of the total price. But it was still a lucky discovery.
