Nothing as cool as the others so far, found some drugs on the roof of a theater, a leatherman tool in a drop ceiling, several snake skins in basements.

Turning tin to gold
Heres how to help finance your remodeling job. These Krueger beer cans were placed in the joists 70 years ago and were worth hundreds each. Who says drinking on the job doesn't pay? Happy holidays everyone!

the ancient customer had about 50 of them in his cellar rafters. he allowed me one. what you cant see in the picture is the shur-stop tag is soldered onto tabs that the clip goes into. i assume it's a very low temp solder, so when the flames melted it, the ball would fall and shatter.

8 years or so ago (when I was still in high school), my parents asked me to check out what was causing a stain on a closet ceiling, that seemed to get wet whenever the A/C was running. Went up into the attic and found that the A/C condensate drain was 3/4" just hanging above a 1 1/2" trap, splashing water everywhere. The interesting find was that in addition to the stain on the ceiling, it was also splashing all over the cable and phone lines, including a coax amplifier module. After fixing the condensate drain, I respliced the phone line (that fixed the DSL issues) and found that because of the DC bias powering the amplifier, the cable lines were hopelessly corroded. (Fortunately, I wasn't using them.) Decided to pull the amplifier to see if it was salvageable, then realized that all I had to do was clean it because it was weather resistant! I used that amplifier module to improve TV reception and I'm actually still using it to this day.

Helping a relative in her basement when I look over and find a nearly full can of “Black Asbestos Furnace Caulk" sitting on a wall near me. Best part to me was the ‘Caution: Irritant' label. (Picture is lost for the moment)

Some of those glass ball things are filled with carbon tetrachloride. It's deadly toxic especially to those who's got alcohol in their system. There's been a story about someone dying from just catching a whiff of fume from someone who was using it nearby. The person who caught a whiff of it had a drink. The person using it didn't.

Have found 20 ton semi hermetic compressor, still sitting on their pallet beside a RTU where the customer had paid for it to have been installed a couple of years earlier.

The grenade I have does have the CCl4. According to the EPA it's deadly to those who already have severely compromised organs, such as from drinking, as you have noted.
