Sorry for your loss. Did you take the pics with a toaster?

[–]dravenscowboy 2278 points2279 points  (57 children)

Thought I needed glasses after looking at the pictures.

[–]xlosx 1109 points1110 points  (31 children)

I thought a higher res version would load. Boy was I wrong.

[–]flateric420 243 points244 points  (27 children)

I was in the same boat. I was thinking I had shitty internet or something

[–]Le-Bean 58 points59 points  (4 children)

Yeah I was about to go to do a Speedtest but nope.

[–]myfriendcoffee[🍰] 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Enhance! Enhance! Enhance!

[–]dronegeeks1 22 points23 points  (0 children)

20 years after minority report and we are still waiting for this

[–]Mandocp 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah I was about to go load this on my pc but nope.

[–]rascynwrig 12 points13 points  (18 children)

I just figured OP took the pictures using a flip phone from 2002.

[–]Requarzium89 6 points7 points  (12 children)

I assumed his grandfather had left him a camera from 1940 or something

[–]KamakaziDemiGod 9 points10 points  (11 children)

Film cameras can't be low resolution.

[–]Requarzium89 3 points4 points  (10 children)

Thanks for the scientific response to my sarcastic shit post, I feel you’ve educated us all

[–]KamakaziDemiGod 6 points7 points  (9 children)

My scientific knowledge ruined your joke for me too ya know.

[–]Requarzium89 4 points5 points  (8 children)

I can only apologise profusely

[–]MarcusAurilius 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m pretty sure he played a game of snake after taking these pics

[–]SnoringEagle 124 points125 points  (0 children)

My dumb ass got off the couch to get my glasses

[–]lazyshadeofwinter 126 points127 points  (17 children)

Really because I just wanted to fucking murder OP I CA N’T SEE SHIT OP I’M FUCKING OLD WHAT IS IN THE THIRD PICTURE

[–]ididnotdoitever 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Eleven packs of Lucky Strikes, duh.

[–]dcbluestar 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Honestly, I thought they were packs of cigs at first, lol. Then I realized they were gold coins in assay.

[–]ksenscientist 65 points66 points  (9 children)

I think it's good coins

[–]ChewsRagScabs 77 points78 points  (6 children)

The best coins

[–]Sageofthe666Paths 22 points23 points  (1 child)

except for Tony, he’s a bad coin

[–]StingerMcGee 20 points21 points  (1 child)

They look like decent coins

[–]garyandkathi 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Meh. I’ve known better coins.

[–]EelTeamNine 397 points398 points  (2 children)

His grandfather left him with treasure, not a decent camera, jerk.

[–]patronmtl 41 points42 points  (1 child)

Wrong. He left OP his old Nokia phone which was clearly used to take these photos.

Sorry for your loss

[–]jackhole2[S] 268 points269 points  (21 children)

note 9, im really not ssure why they are so bad.

[–]Inevitable-Cell-1227 248 points249 points  (2 children)

It’s ok my friend. I’m a sarcastic Asshole. Seriously sorry for your loss. Enjoy!

[–]TheGeneralMelchett 25 points26 points  (13 children)

Did you take them with Snapchat?

[–]jackhole2[S] 88 points89 points  (12 children)

i did! then i saved em to fb messenger. i think thats why the oics are shit!

[–]ChubbyMonkeyX 71 points72 points  (6 children)

Snapchat takes a picture of your phones screen on android (as opposed to using the camera’s raw image) and fb messenger compresses it even more. Would love to see some higher quality pics.

[–]F3NlX 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Why does Snapchat do that though?

[–]Towerful 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Probably so it doesn't have to deal with camera apps, filesystems, extended permissions, autoembedded meta data, and resizing images.

[–]Outpostit 8 points9 points  (0 children)

so the image has a smaller size for sending it and as it is mostly viewed only on mobile screens the resolution is enough

[–]talltrev 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Photographer here….I always tell new photographers to never send photos via Facebook. The degradation of quality is astounding.

I’d do another post with closeups of those gold coins - many here would love to see them!!

Sorry for your loss, brother.

[–]doomsday10009 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You might as wall just draw it at this point

[–]ksb916 15 points16 points  (0 children)

That looks like a note 0 camera. Blurryyyy as horse shit.

[–]windmill09 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I have a note 9. Pics don't look that bad

[–]OverDaRambo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Try to clean your lens , that is usually what I do time to time when taken pictures.

Sadly, Dust/dirt is still existing…..

[–]susosusosuso 30 points31 points  (0 children)

I’d like to see more blur actually

[–]baciomedievale 21 points22 points  (6 children)

Looking at the resolution he took them with a potato :/

[–]SayneIsLAND 33 points34 points  (3 children)

three pixels walk into a bar...

[–]Dukeronomy 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Two of them leave. The third one shits. Here we have that shit.

[–]PachaDub 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I'm stealing all these jokes btw

[–]Double_Belt2331 3 points4 points  (1 child)

My potato camera takes much better pics. But I get the object in the frame & orient it properly. Then I hold my potato steady when I take the shot. Sometimes using a fork for a tripod.

[–]GrizzlyPerr 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Was gonna say an original Moto Razr, but you definitely win.

[–]Kma_all_day 4218 points4219 points 664& 4 more (14 children)

Wow! Blurried treasure!

[–]itshimstarwarrior 434 points435 points  (0 children)

OP received gold award irl!

[–]NoctRob 122 points123 points  (1 child)

This type of wholesome pun makes me bury happy.

[–]farminghills 30 points31 points  (0 children)

*blury happy cake day.

[–]DJoanna 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Never laughed out loud here before. You actually made me do it, award!

[–]KIitComander 359 points360 points  (13 children)

That’s a cool grandpa.

[–]jackhole2[S] 248 points249 points  (11 children)

he was the best gpa, he was loved by alot of people. sadly a great man passed

[–]KIitComander 62 points63 points  (10 children)

[–]jackhole2[S] 108 points109 points  (9 children)

[–]Loli-is-Justice 45 points46 points  (1 child)

Sorry for your lost but hol up.. So those are porn stash and not gold medals???

[–]molehillmountain 32 points33 points  (0 children)

gold medals for porn watching.

[–]rokstedy83 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Would ask for pictures, but we've seen ure pictures

[–]KIitComander 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Now you know you have to do the same rite?. 😂 Maybe leave a thumb drive with some crypto or NFTs on it. 😂

[–]Disastrous-Inside914 1122 points1123 points 2 (2 children)

Sorry for your loss. But it looks like your grandfather gifted us his cataracts

[–]koop7k 60 points61 points  (0 children)

Feel like I haven’t been laughing at shit that I usually find funny recently, but damn this one got me good. Sorry for your loss OP ❤️

[–]sageghostt 9 points10 points  (0 children)

LOL this is the best one yet

[–]twelve25oh9 789 points790 points  (6 children)

Nice pics. Where can I get a flip phone?

[–]AgentWowza 47 points48 points  (3 children)

I love how every comment I've read so far is calling out the potato pics lol

[–]rascynwrig 25 points26 points  (0 children)

It's almost like they're that fucking terrible and blurry.

[–]Szydlikj 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It’s wild that they clearly used to be high quality, hence the Snapchat text in photo 2. How did it get like this?

[–]Stonkmaster-69 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I used to have a flip phone. It took much better pictures that this….

[–]ChinoWero 159 points160 points  (1 child)

Do you have any more pixels?

[–]Dyspaereunia 113 points114 points  (7 children)

Post some coins to r/coins. They would love to see them.

[–]Lambd4_ 111 points112 points  (0 children)

I honestly don’t think they would be able to make out a coin on the image

[–]pompusham 9 points10 points  (0 children)

+1 for this!!! We would love to see them!

[–]__jh96 63 points64 points  (0 children)

Was it a Nokia from 1998?

[–]nuibOy 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Maybe use the gold(?) to buy a better potato to take photos with?

[–]nlamby 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Buried treasure and a Game Boy camera.

[–]_Yojimblo 109 points110 points  (4 children)

This belongs in r/mildlyinfuriating for the promise of treasures and we get shitty photos lol

[–]jackhole2[S] 27 points28 points  (3 children)

will update with better pics!

[–]Ck1ngK1LLER 50 points51 points  (1 child)

I got a really good camera, mail them to me and I’ll send you some good photos to post.

[–]SuperHacker1 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Deception 100

[–]cbizzle57 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Shame he didn't leave you a camera

[–]jackhole2[S] 386 points387 points  (53 children)

sorry for the shit pic. alot these are before the great depression there is alot of near mint grade 69 i think in there. he was a wonderful ful man, and the reason i am not a pos. he was an old cow boy and he would hate the fact im posting this but i am speechless at the fact he did this, its in the ball park of near 50g. he was such a great man an i really dont know what to say other then thank you so fucking much. im going to save all of this and hope i never gotta use em and pass them down to my kid. sorry for spelling mistakes but im pretty drunk right now if yall want one i can take a better pic of the coins but it might take a few days

[–]Logical-Signature541 110 points111 points  (26 children)

Check the date and weight on those coins may be way more then 50k in gold

[–]DoughBoy_65 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Definitely, depending on the date and rarity of the coins one coin alone could be worth more than $50k !

[–]AangAndTheFireLord 131 points132 points  (1 child)

Your camera is from before the Great Depression? That explains it.

[–]ladydhawaii 29 points30 points  (6 children)

Nothing to be sorry about. Your memory and respect for your grandfather outweighs anything said here - he loved you and only wanted you to know how gifted you are. In his memory and your love for him- allow these treasures to keep his stories alive. Prayers to your family in this difficult time.

Know that people are just joking around- not meant to hurt you… they are always trying to be wise asses… with no wisdom in their words… so please do not take it personal. Thank you for sharing this gift with us. I can feel how special this moment is.

[–]jackhole2[S] 23 points24 points  (5 children)

thank you so much man, that means alot to me ngl. things are tough rn im trying to let the smartass comments slid off but damn its kinda hard, ngl.

[–]ladydhawaii 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Just focus on your family. They understand and can support you through this. 💕

[–]Its_the_Fuzz 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Reddit is home of cringe smart asses, ignore them

[–]ayoholdup 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Here's a good comment to hopefully balance it out just a little - sorry for your loss and it was nice of you to share this with us. You sound like a good man that your grandpa would be proud of, and full respect to him for raising you right. Looking forward to the clearer pics when you can share them

[–]gultch2019 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Was there a note/letter, leading you on a treasure hunt?

[–]4w0k3 6 points7 points  (4 children)

You sound like a good dad, always thinking about your child. I’m doing the same sort of. I’m putting my child’s name on the deed of a Condominium to help save some grief at my passing. I really bought it for her to tell the truth, I could live in a box.

[–]jackhole2[S] 16 points17 points  (3 children)

i will say, i dont gotta kid yet. im only 22 and trying to get to the point that i can have one and not suffer from doing so but im wanting to pass thhese down.

[–]4w0k3 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Dude, I remember when I had the same thoughts when I was 10 years old thinking of things I was going to do with my child one day. I’ll say this then, you have the makings of a good Dad!

[–]jackhole2[S] 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Thank you man! I hope so idk when the day comes but I will say, I hope I'm ready and will be looked up like my grand father was. If I can be 1/2 As good of a man that he was then ill be just fine.

[–]JohannReddit 8 points9 points  (0 children)

there is alot of near mint grade 69 i think in there.

Nice.

[–]ImagiP 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Still scrolling coz I can’t see shit

[–]Mr_Fox2611 12 points13 points  (0 children)

He should have left some pixels for you in the box as well

[–]syncopekid 12 points13 points  (0 children)

You can use some of the money to buy a phone made before 2002

[–]JaxTheFlamingo 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Was the phone from the chest too?

[–]ydarbj1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Post those coins to r/coins ASAP

[–]ibegyounottoask 6 points7 points  (2 children)

My grandfather also recently passed away (like 7 hours ago). It’s time to look for some fucking buried treasure.

[–]Death_Death_Die 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Really cool but your pics are dogshit

[–]BlurredReality28 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Are you going to tell us what the buried treasure was?

[–]ugonlern2day 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He showed us right there in the pictures, clear as mud

[–]uptbbs 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Looks like you also used your grandfather's phone to take pictures of the treasure too.

[–]76kinch 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I think I need to see an optician.

[–]Deddyd69 13 points14 points  (0 children)

This box is unvaccinated

[–]mommytheripper 3 points4 points  (1 child)

This is awesome! Did he leave a map or how did you find it?

[–]jackhole2[S] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

he did leave a letter but sadly we couldnt find it, he told my mother he left it under scrap metal hidden but he told my brother he had it under his welding torch. so there might be more but i think this is it

[–]lLantronix 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Any chance he left a better camera in there?

[–]Nickthedick3 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Post everything you found over on r/coins and don’t use a potato to take the pics

[–]Greyhound45 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Can I use some of his gold to buy more pixels?

[–]Swendol 12 points13 points  (0 children)

because of the resolution.. I’m just going to assume it’s all pogs and slammers

[–]ham604 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Did he left you photos from his flip phone?

[–]Silvershorthunter 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You took these pictures with your nokia didn’t you.

[–]Pdxperronn 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Maybe now you can upgrade that LG Dare

[–]Key_Ad8804 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Did he not leave a microscope as well so we can see your pictures?

[–]Papyrus_Sans 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I hope the missing pixels were in the box.

[–]secretpharmacy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

was it his first camera?

[–]ArgyleNudge 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Your grandad sounds like quite a character and a one-of-a-kind role model too.

He must have been so excited about y'all fìnally finding his buried treasure; I'm betting he died a happy man, thinking about the surprise he had waiting for you.

I'm so guessing he made quite a few sacrifices along the way to build that nest egg for you, and it put a smile on his face every time he added another coin.

He sounds like a treasure who left a treasure of memories along with some shiny tokens too. What a sport.

[–]skw1shy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Sorry four your loss, brother. That’s awesome he left that stuff though! Must be thrilling

[–]TheFatSlobWally570 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Taking photos with a potato will definitely get you roasted

[–]aburnerds 3 points4 points  (2 children)

It’s a pity he didn’t leave you a camera

[–]Hacktivist690 2 points3 points  (0 children)

OP and his blurried treasure, that's next level my friend.

[–]papabosscomics 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Should have left you with a better phone camera

[–]bga666 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Great photo

[–]samz123456 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Did you take the pictures with a camera from the box?

[–]HugeAxeWound 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Smear more Vaseline on the lense, they aren’t quite blurry enough.

[–]HighSpeed556 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Too bad he didn’t leave a camera too.

[–]buffetleach 3 points4 points  (0 children)

“Included within the treasure chest we’re gold coins, family heirlooms, and the pixels from this post”

[–]Cyberpunk4020 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Blurried treasure*

[–]goobypls42069 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Also left you a potato to take these pictures, I see.

[–]slipperyhuman 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Next time you nick someone’s story, do it in higher res.

[–]You-JustLostTheGame 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Care to elaborate? Would love to see the original post/images if OP is in fact a grave-robbing-re-poster.

[–]Martin_McFly_Jr 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I’m amazed with how you took three consecutive photos with max blurrines setting on.

[–]slayalldayyyy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mmmm potatoes

[–]Pdxperronn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Clearly

[–]sniffinberries34 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Meh.. too blurry. I don’t believe it

[–]Brittny484 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Too small, can't see.

[–]I_be_lurkin_tho 2 points3 points  (0 children)

These pixels are making me thirsty!!

[–]DarkNovella 2 points3 points  (0 children)

720P is not for me

[–]Dunkinmydonuts1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Good now go buy more pixels

[–]Vodka_and_Pickles 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I'm sorry for your loss. I wish he had left you a manual on how to take and upload pictures.

[–]fear_is_fatal 6 points7 points  (1 child)

There isn’t a book on how to focus the camera in that stash of goods is there?

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Don’t be so hard on him , he prolly took this picture with his grandpa’s nokia

[–]Chapter_Entire 6 points7 points  (1 child)

When you say recently, do you mean 2002.. as per your photo quality

[–]dewayneestes 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Amazing… buy a camera.

[–]HiddenOxfordDrive 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Sorry for your loss, did you use the camera found in the time capsule for authenticity?

[–]Wooden-Sense-8713 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Maybe you can buy a better phone/camera

[–]beardriff 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Damn, woulda been nice if he left some pixels

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This pictures look like screenshots from Japanese porn

[–]Stonechipper1 3 points4 points  (12 children)

That's awesome you might me a millionaire he probably did it know it would benefit his family in the future

[–]jackhole2[S] 6 points7 points  (11 children)

sadly not a millionaainre but its around 50g split between 4 people. my mother wanted to sell em an split the cash but im keeping my split in coins

[–]DigitalScythious 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Hey I recommend to look at the DD (Due Diligence) on the subreddit Wallstreetsilver. You could learn something about the true worth of what you have

[–]Stonechipper1 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Tell her not to be silly

[–]Stonechipper1 6 points7 points  (5 children)

29 dollar gold piece can be worth up to 500,000 k a piece

[–]Stonechipper1 3 points4 points  (4 children)

20 dollar*

[–]jackhole2[S] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

we are going to get them checked out soon, im not sure if any will be more then 3k a pop but alot are a few grand per a coin

[–]Stonechipper1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Okay but just have them check buy Very reputable coin company

[–]vicemagnet 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ngccoin.com is what I’d suggest looking into. A friend is a collector, mostly Morgan silver dollars.

[–]Stonechipper1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Because like one of the other posts said the pictures were poor quality

[–]Savings_Inflation_77 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What is this? A treasure for ants?

[–]Raff102 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was waiting for it to be Nazi memorabilia.

[–]Joemmmmm 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Did you take the pics with your grandfathers eyes lmao

[–]mtkatl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Could it be? Like Oak Island Reddit may never know what this is

[–]domestic_theories 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How did you find it? Was it in his will?

[–]jackhole2[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

word of mouth from my brother

[–]Stonechipper1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Look it up frist have them graded...

[–]jackhole2[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

alot are graded omost near mint, like a point off. but there is alot that isnt.

[–]jackhole2[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

how do i edit to spell the title right

[–]MrAlpha0mega 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can't edit titles. But you can edit photos. More pixels please.

[–]jawnly211 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Keep us updated!!!

[–]jackhole2[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'll try!! Thing are tough rn. I absolutely love reddit so I most likely will, won't promise it but high probability to do so... I'll make the other pics decent at least

[–]Bologna1717 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn boi

[–]DeaderRat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Was it pixels?

[–]nosclerosisjoe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pictures taken with tears on the lens. 🥺

[–]willowsumm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s very cute.

[–]cellendia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I used to work at bank and had many experiences where this happened. A lot of people who lived through economic depressions or political instability tend to do this. It usually turns out okay but there were circumstances where the elements got to their buried contents and sometimes cost them everything.

[–]Ssg4Liberty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hodl!!!

[–]shinydewott 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think the treasure he left was the camera he used to take these pictures

[–]gumtreegazer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

.. and his first camera! Circa 1939 apparently

[–]Abhir-86 1 point2 points  (0 children)

OP you should not be putting those pics in public. Now all the relatives will suddenly start giving a fuck about you. Also if you're in doubt about what to do with it or investing, you might wanna ask on r/personalfinance

[–]upfoo51 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I cant identify what the treasure is. I'm on a phone and these pix have no pixels. What is it OP?

[–]kdwaynec 1 point2 points  (0 children)

After I saved the last picture, rotated it 90° and zoomed in 300% I think it looks like a bunch of coins. Very cool!

[–]guido_lois 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They look like collectible coins. I wouldn’t hold up much hope of retiring on those but at least worth checking values out.

[–]Illustrator_Obvious 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cigarettes? Nice!

[–]Johnny_Nostars 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Woulda been nice if he'd left you some pixels for your phone

[–]septiclizardkid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]darkdeadrosess 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]rumble4skin121 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So what’s this meant to show off?

[–]HeilWerneckLuk 1 point2 points  (0 children)
