Emil knew he needed to check it out, and what he ended up finding was truly astonishing! He found a secret drawer that no one had opened for decades. There were numerous treasures waiting to be discovered on the inside! Various coins, emeralds, diamonds and Civil War medals were stashed inside of this drawer.
According to professional estimates, everything hidden inside of this drawer was worth $15,000, which would have been quite the return on investment for the $100 Emil originally spent on the dresser. In the end, however, Emil decided that the family should know about his discovery, and he ended up giving the treasures back to the original owners. We are impressed that he was able to make the right choice and we bet that this family was very grateful to get the items back!
