Who Stashed Gold Inside a British Piano? It’s a Mystery

What treasures do we have hidden right under our nose?

The 913 gold coins which were found in a piano are displayed at Ludlow Museum in Ludlow, England Thursday April 20, 2017, where they are being kept under lock and key as a mystery surrounds the identity of the rightful heirs to a treasure trove of gold coins. British officials say they have been unable to trace the rightful heirs to a trove of gold coins worth a "life-changing" amount of money. The school that owns the piano and the tuner who found the gold are now in line for a windfall after a coroner investigating the find declared it treasure.
