Cash Hidden in Ohio House Walls Becomes Contractor's Nightmare
Sunday, November 09, 2008
CLEVELAND — A contractor who found $182,000 in Depression-era currency hidden in a bathroom wall has ended up with only a few thousand dollars, but he feels some vindication.
The windfall discovery amounted to little more than grief for contractor Bob Kitts, who couldn't agree on how to split the money with homeowner Amanda Reece.
It didn't help Reece much, either. She testified in a deposition that she was considering bankruptcy and that a bank recently foreclosed on one of her properties.
And 21 descendants of Patrick Dunne — the wealthy businessman who stashed the money that was minted in a time of bank collapses and joblessness — will each get a mere fraction of the find.

if he was savvy he would have taken his 10 % but in the rarer billls
even i know that any bills larger than $100 are collectors items
during the depression era there were:
The $500 bill featured a portrait of William McKinley
The $1,000 bill featured a portrait of Grover Cleveland
The $5,000 bill featured a portrait of James Madison
The $10,000 bill featured a portrait of Salmon P. Chase
The $100,000 bill featured a portrait of Woodrow Wilson

It is worth point out, if they had hidden gold instead of paper money, this would be an even bigger story.
Depression era Gold was $20 - 30 an once. $182,000/20 = 9100 onces of gold.
9100 * $733 an once = $6,670,300.
Of course the US government made it illegal for citizens to own gold in 1933.

It is pretty amazing to think about how much damage the corrupt private cartel the FED has done to the US currency and Constitution.
