    I think I found a dollar bill one time.

    I've been anticipating that I would luck up and find a duffel bag stuffed full of hundreds from an abandoned drug transaction and live happily ever after. but no luck so far.

    I cut a couple of Bowling alleys and I seem to find money every couple of weeks on their lawns. The most at one time was a $10 bill.

    found a few dollar bills and a ten once. saw a guy come back with a shreded 50 (upon hearing the rest of the story found out it fell out of his own pocket and didnt see it untill it was too late) It was very funny to see him try to tape it back together though. The bank would not take it back. HA!

    Unfortunately the only goods that we find on Commercial/Industrial properties make our trucks look like Sanford&Son.

    Does dead bodies count???
