X Marks the Spot!

So, this past weekend was like any weekend... My husband and I spent time together, I worked on school work, we cooked some food, we enjoyed each others company... one would never know what something EXTRAORDINARY happened!
.
A few months ago Spencer started cutting a hole in our attic for an attic door. Our house was built in 1950, but the only thing that ever existed was a small little access panel to the attic.. When he cut the hole for the door and got up there, we realize we needed to replace the insulation if we wanted to be energy efficient...

Over the past few months he has been slowly replacing insulation, and this Saturday he went up to replace a little more.... after about 30 minutes of pushing things around he came down the ladder, and announced he had found a coffee can filled with something.
From the way he said it I feared it was something terrible...A dead animal.....ashes... who knows?!

...then we opened it.... and found it was stuffed with newspaper....and inside all of the newspaper... old coins.... SILVER coins.... rolls and rolls of silver coins!!!!!!!!!!!!

We counted them all up and found we had 210 silver coins....

The next day Spencer took them to a jewelry store and was presented with almost $1000 in payment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't even contain how excited I am about all of it!?
Next step? 
Rent a metal detector and hit the backyard...
These are the things everyone wishes to find!

I read about that on your Facebook. Super jelly! That's something you watch happen in a movie. It'd never happen to me since we were the first owners of my current home. But I swear, when I buy back my grandparents home, I'm searching EVERYWHERE! -- Good luck and I hope you find tons more treasure! :D
