What A Barn Find !!!

Always check the barn !!!! Pa

A New York man retired. He wanted to use his retirement
money wisely, so it would last, and decided to buy a home and a
few acres in Portugal . The modest farmhouse had been vacant for
15 years.; the owner and wife both had died, and there were no heirs.
The house was sold to pay taxes. There had been several lookers,
but the large barn had steel doors, and they had been welded
shut. Nobody wanted to go to the extra expense to see what was in
the barn, and it wasn't complimentary to the property anyway......so,
nobody made an offer on the place.
The New York guy bought it at just over half of the property's worth, moved
in, and set about to tear in to the barn.......curiosity was killing him.
So, he and his wife bought a generator, and a couple of grinders.......and
cut thru the welds.

WHOA DOGGY!!!
ALL VALUED UP AT $35 MILLION DOLLARS!!!
THIS IS A TRUE STORY THE MAN AND HIS WIFE HAD FULL CLAIM TO THE LOT
THEY HAD A GREAT RETIREMENT!
What was in the barn...............?

Seems the story surrounding this collection may be bogus. The collection is real though. Pa
