10: Superman Comic
It's not every day somebody finds a comic book that makes them rich. But that's exactly what happened when a construction worker in Minnesota was restoring a small house in the town of Hoffman. His name is David Gonzales, and the 34-year-old man found the comic book sitting amongst old newspapers in the attic of the house that he was working on.

9: Gold Pendant Found by Young Boy
A young boy, only four years old, found the treasure of a lifetime when using a metal detector to search through a field in rural England back in 2010. This young boy, who probably didn't even understand the value of a $100 bill at the time, found a treasure estimated to be worth more than $2.5 million.

8: Pyura Chilensis
This next story is a little weird. Unless you're a native of Chile or Peru, you have probably never heard of the Pyura Chilensis. It's a sea creature disguised as a rock that is worth a small fortune. These are often considered living rocks, as to the unsuspecting person they really do just look like another piece of stone on the bottom of the ocean.

7: Baseball Cards in an Attic
When a man in New Jersey died at the ripe old age of 97, a treasure was found in the attic of his home. It was one of the most valuable discoveries of sports memorabilia ever. In this guy's attic was hiding a rare and valuable sports card collection, including a baseball card from the former New York Yankees Babe Ruth, that was hand-signed by the man himself.

6: National Treasure Found at Flea Market
It's nothing new to go into a flea market expecting to find some hidden goods. Everyone loves finding a great deal at a flea market or a secondhand store and then telling their friends all about it. But what nobody expects is to find a legitimate copy of the original 1776 Declaration of Independence at a local flea market.

5: The Most Expensive Piece of Whale Vomit
This next one is a huge surprise. An 8-year-old boy in Great Britain found a chunk of whale vomit worth an absolute fortune. While walking on a beach, this young boy came across a large chunk of what looked to be a yellow rock, and with the help of his parents discovered that the thing he had found was not an ordinary rock, but a piece of ambergris, also known as whale vomit.

4: World’s Best Opal
Opals are precious stones that can be worth anywhere from nothing to a huge fortune. These are some of the most interesting gemstones in the world because of their incredible scope of colors. Opals can be just about any color, and the most expensive ones have swirls of many different hues and tones inside of them.

3: Coins in the Wall
When it comes to hiding your wealth, most people would stuff all their cash into a mattress or maybe even into a vault. Packing coins in the walls of your house just doesn't seem like a good idea. But apparently many years ago, the ideal hiding space was absolutely behind the walls of your own home.

2: Enormous Gold Nugget
An amateur explorer in Australia unearthed a nugget of gold worth more money than most of us will ever see in a lifetime. The man is unidentified, probably because he's now stinking rich and doesn't want people to know about it.

1: The Discovery of the Popsicle
In the early 1900s in San Francisco, an 11-year-old boy invented the popsicle. That's right, the incredibly popular summer treat was invented by a young kid named Frank Epperson. And he did it completely by accident. This kid mixed some sugary powder with water, then left it out overnight. And because it was winter in San Francisco, the mixture froze.

5. Staffordshire Hoard
What would you do if you were just searching some land with a metal detector and found a giant hoard of gold? Probably have a heart attack on the spot right? Well, luckily for Terry Herbert, he didn’t have a heart attack way back on July 5, 2009, when his metal detector picked up some gold artifacts. After five more days of searching, he had uncovered 244 gold objects and decided to call somebody about it. He contacted Duncan Slarke, the right man for the job, and Slarke received permission from the landowner on which the gold was found, Fred Johnson, to fully excavate the site. The initial find was valued by the Treasure Valuation Committee in November of 2009, and it was found to be worth 3.285 million pounds, and under the provisions of the 1996 Treasure Act, that sum had to be paid to and split by the finder and landowner. The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery and the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery paid up, and both Herbert and Johnson received half! Talk about a lucky find!

4. Magnolias on Gold Velvet Cloth
For years and years, this remarkable and pricey work of art was literally used to cover up a hole in a wall in an Indiana home. Its value remained unknown until 1999 when the man who owned it played a game called Masterpiece. The board game that has to do with art featured an image of a Martin Johnson Heade painting that was similar to the one the man had hanging in his home, so he decided to check it out. He found the Kennedy Galleries in Manhattan online and saw that they handled Heade’s work, so he shot them an email and images of the painting to see if his was legitimate or not. The gallery authenticated the work and then matched the owner with the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, which paid him $1.25 million for the artwork. Boy, that hole covering really changed that guy’s life, didn’t it?

3. Declaration of Independence
Can you imagine buying a painting for just four dollars at a flea market, only to find a copy of the Declaration of Independence hidden in behind it? And no, not just a copy or a knock-off of the Declaration, but a real, first printing of the Declaration. That’s what happened to a Pennsylvania man back in 1989 when he liked a painting because of its frame and bought the thing so that he could use the frame later. The Sotheby’s head of the book and manuscript department called the find, “an unspeakably fresh copy” and credited the backing of the frame for preserving it so well. It was also an unbacked copy, adding to the value of it considering only 7 of 24 original copies are unbacked. So this guy basically found the Holy Grail and only spent four bucks on it! It ended up selling for $2,420,000, making the finder probably the luckiest flea market shopper ever.

2. Hoxne Hoard
Well, it seems that metal detecting may, in fact, be a worthwhile hobby… that is if you have the patience and the time. Way back in November 1992, Eric Lawes, a man with a metal detector in England, basically found the treasure of all treasures while detecting. Peter Whatling, a friend of Lawes, lost a hammer, and while looking for it, Lawes’ metal detector started going off, signaling that there was something buried beneath the ground. Then, it went from finding just one thing to another, and then another, and before he knew it, Lawes had found a whole hoard of treasure consisting of gold and silver coins, jewelry, and spoons. Whatling and Lawes then decided to contact police and the landowner before going on. Throughout the next day, archeologists tore up the area and unearthed a vast hoard of buried treasure. The treasure ended up being worth 1.75 million British pounds and earned the name, “The Hoxne Hoard.” Lawes and Whatling split the proceeds and lived happily ever after. Oh, and the hammer was found too and donated to the British Museum.

9. The Royal One
In Australia, at a place called Lightning Ridge, a man named Bobby (who refused to give his last name) was out collecting rocks for his job. As he was sifting through them, he found himself looking at a very interesting looking rock. How so? Well, this one sparkled in a way that most rocks don't, so that made it very unique and special. Liking the rock that he found, he took it home and kept it.

8. Wall Vault of Coins
When you have some spare change, what do you do with it? You either put it in your wallet, put it in a jar or container for safe keeping, or you can put it in a piggy bank if you feel the need to be nostalgic. For one family though, they had an entirely different idea. They decided to put their spare the walls of their home.

7. St. Albans Coins
For modern day treasure hunters, sometimes the easiest, and best, way to go and look for rare finds is to just go and buy yourself a metal detector. It's worked for many people over the years, and that includes a man named Wesley Carrington. Wesley was from England, and decided one day that he should go and get himself a metal detector.

6. The Hoxne Hoard
In 1992, a man named Peter Whatling had a problem on his farm in Hoxne, Suffolk in England. Mainly, he lost his hammer, and truly couldn't find it. So, he brought his friend Eric Lawes and a metal detector and began to search the nearby field for his hammer. As they did, the metal detector went off multiple times, and as they dug, they didn't find the hammer. But rather, they found silver and gold, lots of it.

5. Post-It Notes
While discoveries of rare items are common tales of people getting rich, the option also applies to inventors who stumble upon their inventions that will make them legendary. Such as Spencer Silver and the creation of the Post-It Notes. It's hard to imagine modern life without the Post-It Note, but back in 1973, it was just an idea of Silver's, and not the idea you might think. All he wanted to do was make a special kind of tape that could work on paper (likely without hurting the paper like most tapes do).

4. Action Comics #1
A couple were in dire straits. They didn't have enough money to pay the bank for their home, and thus, they were going to lose it. As they were cleaning out the attic, they came across some boxes that they didn't realize were there. They began to search them to see what was inside, and when they did, they found something they didn't expect: a comic book. But not just any comic book, Action Comics #1.

3. Whale
The title may sound disgusting, but it's actually true in regards to what I'm talking about. Mainly, that the projectile from certain whales is actually a very valuable item. The scientific name for this is Ambergris. What it is, is the that Whales spit up while in the ocean. Because it's lighter than water, it actually floats up to the surface. Then, being exposed to the sunlight, as well as mixing with the salt water, it creates a hardened material that is actually very valuable.

2. The Two Million Dollar Penny
Robert Lawrence was the son of a proud worker of the US Mint in Denver, Colorado. However, when his dad died, he packed up all his belongings and took them to San Francisco with him. One of the things that his father left behind was a coin collection. At first, Lawrence actually forgot about the collection, and then a month after the move he found it again, and decided to take it to a coin expert.

1. The Declaration of Independence
To be clear, a person didn't find the original Declaration of Independence, that's safely locked away in Washington D.C., however, there were copies of the original made back in 1776, and one person found one of them in a very roundabout way.

5. Lost Pollack Painting
Sometimes you might knowingly have something in your house that you just don’t know is worth a lot of money This was the case for a man living in Scottsdale Arizona who had a college of modern art painting that he just found to be intriguing. He called over some experts to take a look at one of his signed laker posters which was only worth about 300 bucks but the experts noticed something else in the garage that caught their eye! They noticed the series of smears consistent with a modern artist consistent with Jackson Pollock. This American painter is considered a major figure in abstract expressionism and his paintings are worth big bucks! The painting heavily damaged but even then, still worth some serious cash. The had it authenticated by an another expert who closely examined the painting and claimed it was indeed authentic and could sell for anything from 10 million to 15 million dollars!
4. Boulder Matrix Opal
It seems like digging around in Australia could certainly pay off. The world’s largest opal matrix was discovered in Queensland Australia in 2011 and this amazing stone has 55,000 carats! That’s about 25 points of pure opal! The previous largest opal ever discovered only was 6,100 carats. This mammoth find took place in the dry outback which receives very little rainfall. It measured in at about 10 inches in length and is valued at 1 million dollars!
3. Jersey Iron Age Coins
A great deal of coins were found on the Island of Jersey in 2012 and it may shock you This island in the English Channel that contains a great deal of French and English culture but also contained a massive treasure. After searching for this treasure for 30 years, two amateur treasure hunters found these coins that date back to Iron Age. But no, these weren’t made of iron but silver and was the largest haul of celtic coins to have ever been found. Each coin you see in this person’s hand was found on the island of Jersey is worth at least 200 pounds each, and you can tell they’re still in great condition. This makes the total discovery worth 10 million pounds or 12 million US dollars. They were found under 3 feet of soil under a hedge in someone’s farm. The coins were packed in a clay chest and literally weighed a ton! It’s believed that it was stashed here to keep the Romans from plundering it during their conquest of the British Isles.
2. Sutter’s Mill Gold Discovery
Now for a little bit of history. Sometimes when you discover something, you might make other people rich but not necessarily yourself and this was the case for John Sutter. This guy had some bad luck. James Marshall who worked at Sutter’s Mill discovered a massive golden nugget and told his boss John Sutter about it. The two decided to keep it a secret for a while but hired some men to help them pan out the gold. We’ll it turns out that all the miners they hired were a bunch of no good thieves and they stole basically all the gold they came across. The miners basically told everyone that there was gold in them there hills and this is what brought millions of people seeking fast riches! Fortune seekers from all over the world like from China, Germany, Mexico, Ireland Turkey and of course the easter united states, moved to California during this period After all his employees cheated him and took off with gold found on his land, the gold ran out and he was left basically penniless. He decided to give up on the california dream and moved as far away as possible. California officially became a state in 1850, partially thanks to there being gold here. If this moment in history never happened, the western united states would most likely be much less developed and less rich. Now you know why california is called the “Golden State”.1. The Whydah Discovery
The Whydah was a British slave ship that was originally captured by “Black Sam” and was found off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts in 1984 by Barry Clifford. He actually credits a pirate treasure map that many discredited as being false. It seems to be the holy grail of pirate discoveries! Priceless artifacts were discovered including 200,000 individual pieces were received under only 14 feet of water. Rare gold and silver coins, gold jewelry and artifacts, cannons, sword handles and even a boy’s leg! The boat is believed to carry the plunder of 10 ships. Spanish Galleons were relentless looted by Black Sam until him and his crew were swept away by a strong storm in 1717. Divers pulled together huge clumps of gold coin masses that stuck together from years of being underwater. A museum exhibition called “Real Pirates: The Untold Story of the Whydah, from Slave Ship to Pirate Ship”, toured the United States.

But it is a sad fact of life that when we finally get around to cleaning out the clutter, most of us will uncover nothing but dust bunnies.
