Following this, Barbara Agostini said, “It’s surreal, I thought it was a joke until I saw it with my eyes.”

Though, it was not the first time pair discovering such a safe but it was their first one containing more than random odds and ends, because the box was not air-tight many of the banknotes were wet or mud smeared.

The couple feared as the money could be linked to criminal activity. he couple went to the New York police, saying they “didn’t want to have a problem on our hands.”

But the officers washed their hands off the money.

“As a general matter, found property valued at ten dollars or more is required to be reported to, and deposited with, the police,” a police spokesman told AFP.

“In this instance, the value and authenticity of the alleged currency could not be determined due to the severely disintegrated condition of the property.”

After all this, US couple Barbara and Kane are now hoping to exchange their waterlogged currency for clean currency. As US rules allow for the exchange of damaged banknotes — provided that they are not the proceeds of crime.
