An auto technician thought his working days were over after finding stacks of 1920s-era German bonds inside a half-submerged safe in his backyard.
Gianni Smerilli, 32, was cleaning up the back yard of a home he bought near Hamilton last year when he made the discovery.
“I thought I found something great,” he told CBC News. “I thought this was the big one.”
Smerilli said the house and yard were filled with junk when he took possession, including a safe about the size of a washing machine in the back yard.
“We couldn’t move the safe,” he told CBC News. “It’s full of concrete.”
