When a couple from Irmo, South Carolina, (who wish to remain anonymous) sold the dream house they'd lived in for 32 years, they thought they tied up all loose ends. Repairs were made, paperwork was in order, and they'd removed their belongings. A few days after the sale was finalized, new owners James and Clarrisa Munford discovered a literal treasure.
The former owners had hidden, and then forgotten about, 50 gold and silver coins. Legally the coins, valued at $15,000, were now the Munford's property. They could sell them and pocket the profits. But they chose to contact the sellers and return the coins, which had been left in a built-in drawer in the home. "There is an old saying, 'You reap what your sow,'" said the original owner. "My wife and I spent a great deal of time and effort to ensure that we left our home in excellent condition for the Munfords, and one good was certainly returned by another!"
