Let's face it, most of us aren't contented with the interior of our homes so we thought that maybe, a little renovation will do.
This is what this Phoenix couple was trying to do in their home. They were trying to do some renovations inside their wall but they ended up stumbling on a 50-year-old safe, waiting to be cracked.
When they first moved into thier home, thecouple narrated that they are trying to fix the upper part of their home when they found a safe code at the back of a medicine cabinet, but they had no idea where it would lead them to.
And when they were already tearing down the kitchen island, they found a mysterious looking box. They then used the code they found on the medicine cabinet and after a dozen attempts, it finally opened.

Surprisingly, they found $51,080 mostly in $100 notes and a bottle of a bourbon dated back in 1960.
"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," the woman writes on Imgur.
But it seems that there's no one who could stop them from opening that bourbon!
Beside the cash that they found, the safe also contains an interesting book called A Guide for the Perplexed, published in 1977, that appears to contain clues. There was a black and white photo inside the book, adding mystery to them.
On the back of Mr. Handsome's pic, there was a note that reads:
I have a book you must read. I've underlined a few key passages.
In between page 7 and 8, there was a card with the state Arizona with an X mark over Mesa.
They then found some underlined passage in the chapter that was entitled 'On Philosophical Maps'.
"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."
There was also a photo of an old estate beneath the sentence, "There yielded such fruitful results."
Where the back says: "Where one tree becomes three."
Vincent thoughtfully pointed out to Alan: "Most Modern Readers will be reluctant to believe that perfect happiness is attainable by methods of which their modern world knows nothing."
Is this the 1977 mean of the saying 'stop coveting that iWatch and find joy in simple walks and stuff?' it sounds unreal but these things and clues that they found were truly puzzling!
