- When a column was knocked down on a porch, dozens of old whiskey bottles and beer cans tumbled out
- They were from the 1940s and can each get $ 40-50 on eBay; Danielle believes she has around 50, which means she could sell the collection for up to $ 1,500

Oldies: the bottles are collectibles from the 1940s
Danielle's house was built in the 1920s, but apparently he loved it sometime in the & # 39; 40.
Danielle recently decided to do some work on her porch, and as part of that one of the columns had to be dismantled. It was then that the hidden treasure was revealed, although it was very similar to someone else's old trash.
Fortunately, the homeowner took a look at what had been found in the column and heard that the whiskey bottles and beer cans, which are decades old, are actually collector items, that customers are willing to donate some money for them on eBay.
& # 39; It was a jackpot from the 40s – all kinds of whiskey and bourbon you can imagine. Tons of old vintage beer cans. Many of them in great condition, & she told the local Fox affiliate.

& # 39; There are collectors and now I & # 39; an extensive collection at night.
& # 39; A quick Google survey showed that some of these Falstaff cans can cost 40 to 50 dollars. I have at least 20 to 30 of these guys. & # 39;
With a little more digging, they discovered how those cans and bottles ended up in it.
Her family found a hole at the top of the column that was connected to a parachute. It appears that a previous owner threw the bottles down the gutter to throw them away and they gathered in the column.
