67-year-old Emil Knodell bought an old dresser for $100 at a yard sale on Saturday, and found a secret drawer filled with jewelry, diamonds, cash, and Civil War memorabilia.

While Emil was moving it with a friend, they tipped it on its side and heard something jingling around. They checked the three main drawers and didn't see anything. That's when they realized there was a secret drawer at the bottom.

It was filled with jewelry, diamonds, cash, and some old Civil War memorabilia. It's not clear how much it's all worth, Emil didn't have it appraised, he immediately got on the phone, called the guy he bought it from and returned it.

He says paying a hundred bucks for the dresser was already a deal, and that's what he bought. He wouldn't have felt right keeping the stuff he found inside. The guy running the yard sale says the dresser originally belonged to his grandparents, and he had no idea there was a secret drawer.
