    This happened to my brother once. We just moved into our new home and he was fucking around in the basement hitting celiling tiles instead of cleaning.

    A box of fucking money falls on him. 600 bucks in bills maybe 100 in various coins. tons of old recipets.and bills too

    Our mom took it because my brothers wouldn't shut up about it.

    At least I learned they'd be liabilities in a bank robbery.
    Shit how do I delete threads

    Delete the thread before the government finds out and the treasure becomes taxable income!

    does this count as an income event though? it was part of the property Rank purchased.

    i didn't go into tax law because numbers are harddd

    As a small-town pizza lawyer I'm here to tell you that treasure is tax exempt

    Tax law sucks I got one of my worst grades in it but I sure do remember "buried treasure" and the unholy amount of tax you have to pay on it if you declare it on your income.

    This guy was smart. He buried it in a flower bed where upturned soil is common and it was on his property so he could keep an eye on it.

    If there's more it's probably hidden with similar care

    nah this would deffo be some kind of taxable income, though if he handles everything with cash it might be tough for the IRS to find out about it

    that's probably not a good idea though and I bet most of the methods by which you could liquidate finds like this have to report their dealings anyway

    I once found a solid silver Spanish coin from 1735. It was during an archeological dig though so I couldn’t keep it.

    While you're talking about disenchanting curses to your friendly neighborhood Abjurer, have them double-check for Mimic Eggs in the pile. Once they hatch, they'll eat the rest of the real coins to help kick-start their transformation into their adolescent Piggy Bank or Vending Machine form. The Chest or Coffer transformation is full maturity, when individual coins can no longer sustain them except in the kind of bulk that Adventurers are usually carrying.

    Realizing lately that I don't really trust or respect basically any of the moderators here. So, good luck with life, friends! Hit me up on Twitter @DesertLeviathan

    I mean I thought of most of that. Mine would have ventilation and a stairwell and probably connect to my basement. It would just look hidden

    My oldest is 1678

    Then I jump to 1788 and then 1853

    I also have a lead seal from around 1714

    what you do when you find a chest depends on the ruleset, like if it's randomised loot never open buried treasure, level up some more and come back
