Guy finds a floor safe in his new house. Goes to Reddit/howto for advice, and reports back the results, after two locksmiths spent 4 hours breaking it open.
Should’ve called Lockpicking Lawyer.
Hope they found something more exciting than a dank square of carpet!
They did. The safe contained quite a lot of badly damaged cash, about $2600 counted so far.
Note that the safe was opened in four hours, not almost a year.
At least some $CDN. Canada hasn’t printed paper $1.00 bills since 1989.
Discussion centres around whether these can be exchanged for new money.
I’m no banker, but I’m thinking they should be able to exchange them if at least one of the serial numbers is intact?
I live pretty darn close to Canada, so I am aware that there aren’t paper $1 or $2 bills (thus Loonies and twonies), but Canada also no longer mints pennies. I still find the dang things in my change on occasion. You want them back or should I just pitch them into the Detroit River? I’m going on the paddle boat cruise on Monday…
Nah, I’m good. Drop one in a Tim Horton’s coffee and make a wish, then use it to scratch a lottery ticket?
I like this exception to the <50% rule:
“Fragments and remnants presented which represent 50% or less of a note are identifiable as United States currency but the method of destruction and supporting evidence do not satisfy the Treasury that the missing portion has been totally destroyed.”
My favorite part is “petrification” as a common means of destruction.
Is that a new thing? I never go to Timmy’s because everything tastes like cardboard on this side of the river.
I’ve never been to a USian Timmy’s, so I can’t compare. Some of the Canadian products aren’t bad.
I have done the comparison. Timmy’s serves food in Canada!
Shouldn’t this be in the safe thread?
Wait!!! Why is it locked! I leave for a few days, and someone locks the safe thread!!!
I just opened it for you. Get to it!
Thanks- We can’t let the safe thread lock. Look how much trouble it took to get it unlocked last time.
