While moving into a new house, a couple found a small latch under a few boxes they had stacked in a closet.
Below they found a small compartment that seemed to be empty.
However tucked away in the corner was a small dusty box.
The box had some very distinct and intricate patterns.
The box was surprisingly heavy, and firmly locked.

Not wanting to wait around for a locksmith, the couple decided to delicately force the box open.
Inside were an assortment of coins, and another smaller box.
A closeup of the coins, including a 50 pence British coin.
There was also something hidden sandwiched between the lining and box.
A vintage Silver Surfer card in a protective case.
Under the cards there was also a vintage Spiderman hologram card.
And then on to the tiny box…
This one had a much heavier lock.
Luckily among the coins, the couple found a key to the lock.
Inside revealed a collection of old pocket watches.
Many of them were still functioning.
