Children often dream of finding a treasure but not many of them have the chance to of it. This Reddit user was lucky to discover a safe in his grandfather's farmhouse in rural Tenneessee. The man shared the pics of his find on Reddit. "My grandfather passed away from lung cancer in 1998. After he died, neither my grandmother nor my father ever showed up at this old house let alone me. But soon they were gone too, so I decided to sell the house and started tidying it up," the man wrote. Although he spent his entire childhood dreaming of finding a treasure, he had no idea that the treasure was right under his nose.
