Locksmith Cracks Safe To Find Fortune For Customer

Posted: Updated:

Finally at Five...Jaws dropped at a locksmith's store in Houston, Texas when they cracked open a safe a customer was planning to sell for scrap.
A stash of valuable coins was found inside the safe the locksmith says a customer brought in after finding it at an estate sale.
The crew worked for weeks trying to get the safe cracked because the customer wanted to know what was inside before he sold it for scrap.
Inside, they found boxes filled with what appeared to be gold coins.
The coins appear to be South African "Krugerrands".
Each of those coins is now selling for about 14-hundred-dollars per coin.
If they turn out to be legitimate the lot could be worth several million dollars.
