Wireservice report from an Omaha newspaper:

 

Linda Stafford has been going to garage sales for 30 years, and it finally paid off for her in a big way. She was making room in her garage for her latest purchase, a high-backed chair that she bought for $2. Her daughter, Mandy Rath, heard something rattle in the chair. They removed the bottom and found two paper packets in a compartment, one containing $10 in coins and the other with $3060 in bills, Series 1928 to 1953.

Remember a few years back when a man bought an old picture at a guh-rage sale and found one of the original state's copy of the... 893scratchchin-thumb.gif...was it the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence?

It was the Declaration of Independence and he bought an ugly picture with a nice frame at a flea market for $20. If I recall correctly, it was believed to be the North Carolina copy that was hidden away during the Civil War (?).
