A couple from Phoenix, US discovered a safe containing interesting things while they were renovating their home.

Apparently, the woman and her partner were demolishing their kitchen when they found the decades-old safe containing $50,000 and a treasure hunt.

According to the woman, she and her partner found a safe code at the back of a medicine cabinet when they first moved in years ago. Fortunately, she saved the code and after several attempts, the safe did unlock.

After tearing down their kitchen island, the couple uncovered a safe.

We stared in disbelief. Time stood still. I started to reach in the safe and Eddie yelled, ‘Wait it might be booby trapped!’ I’m still laughing at that one,” she wrote in her post on imgur.

Inside the safe, the couple found $51,080 mostly in $100 notes, a book entitled  “A Guide for the Perplexed” by E.F. Schumacher’, and a bottle of bourbon dated 1960.

Inside the safe, the couple found cash, a book, and a bottle of Bourbon.

What’s even more fascinating was the content of the book they discovered. Inserted was a photo of an unidentified man and written on the back is a clue to what seems like a treasure hunt.

The book entitled “A Guide for the Perplexed” by E.F. Schumacher’ published in 1977 contained a series of clues to what seems to be a treasure hunt.

“Alan, I have a book you must read.

“I’ve underlined a few key passages.

Your friend, Vincent.”

On page seven, the underlined passage reads:“One way of looking at the world as a whole is by means of a map, that is to say, some sort of plan or outline that shows where various things are to be found.”

A card with the state of Arizona was also inserted on the same page.

Are these clues for a treasure hunt?

On page 11, a photo of a house or an old estate with “there yielded such fruitful results” written underneath was tucked in. The back of the photo reads: “where one tree becomes three”.

“There might be a keen eye out there who recognizes this place and I’d be curious about that three-headed tree!”

Finally, on page 14, the underlined passage reads: “Most Modern Readers will be reluctant to believe that perfect happiness is attainable by methods of which their modern world knows nothing.”

What makes it even more intriguing is the Bingo card with three numbers circled.

Although the couple was amazed by their discovery, the woman said: “If Alan is still out there, it was meant for him after all. But we’re keeping the bourbon!”
