WWI-era ammunition round found filled with antique coins, bills

A Michigan family made a bombshell discovery this weekend when they discovered a non-live WWI-era ammunition round was filled with treasure.

The family was cleaning out its house when they came across what they believed to be a live ammunition round and contacted authorities, Michigan State Police said on Twitter.

Cops from the Michigan State Police Bomb Squad conducted an X-ray of the military relic, and ultimately determined that the round was not live.

Instead, it was discovered that the shell contained a hidden trove of antique coins and bills dating from the 1800s and early 1900s.

Police took the round and left the family with the spoils.
