    POSSABLE CACHE!!! I Found a 75 Year Old Unopened Box Underneath a Childs Bedframe!!!

    Hey guys on Sunday I found a unopened box underneath a 75 year old bed frame and I will get it out this weekend! Let me describe this to you! In a refurbished 200 year old home I have been cache hunting for the last 3 years I have just made a breakthrough. NOTE: this is the same home I found the cache 3 years ago! Anyway in the upstairs bed room on the original side of the house there is a child's room with the attic entrance and 2 twin bed frames made of solid wood! In the solid wood there are three holes where the Mattress post goes that are just big enough for me to put a iron claw down there to pick up old toys and stuff! In the last 6 months I've been doing this I have discovered A 1980 Racecar, 2 baseball cards from the 1970's, and a New York Ranger action figure from the 1980's. I have made a video on it and I would like ur personal opinions about anything! Feel free to ask questions, give opinions, guess what is in the box, tell me something I could have missed, and anything else. Please help me out here this could be a once in a lifetime experience. Here is the link

    Ill post pictures later but I plan to get the box out on Sunday! (Unless plans change) I know its a long video but please watch at least part of it so u know what you are dealing with here! Finally, Ill keep you guys posted and if I find a cache jewelry etc. then I will give a link to a different thread! Thank You

    I did that same thing when I found tons of 1980's toys and other random things from the 1980's in a big giant open space under the floor. I had to use the same exact claw thingy you use to get the stuff because the hole in the floor was only 4 inches wide. I like the Alf (the TV from the 80's with the alien) playing cards that I found under the floorboards the most.

    Another thing, It would be sad if when you got it out and opened it up nothing was in it. I hope there is something cool in it though.

    Fun hunt. Try putting a vacuum cleaner hose down there and see if you can use the suction to move the box towards the hole so you can see it better. The room is an odd set up, looks like there is another floor under the top floor.

    Hmmm.
    Try removing side panel with small pry bar or chisel...
    Then just hammer back into place when done.
    Saves all that time...
    And all that video.

    Yeah the problem is the bed is still used as a bed today! It is a family cottage so the last thing I want to do is destroy a perfectly good bed

    I agree to try a long vacuum cleaner hose down there. Just use the skinny attachment if you have one because it would increase the suction and not allow anything to bend up the hole or be damaged like the cards for example!

    Do you think the box is metal? Could try a magnet attached to your probe and see if it sticks.

    I agree, more suspense and thrill doing it your way than sledgehammering it.

    It appears to be however the way I touched it was attaching a wooden stick to the probe making it 3ft long I'm unsure

    If it is then put a bunch of strong fridge magnets in a plastic bag and then tape the bugger on good and TIGHT to the end of your probe. It should stick to one of them and pull it out slow. Worth a shot!

    Since it was mostly used as a kids room I would venture to say a collection of things that they would have thought valuable. What suspense!
