More than half a billion German Reichsmarks were discovered in a time capsule from 1930 hidden inside an organ in Norway.
According to a note found in the time capsule, it was placed in the organ by August Sieber, an organ builder from Bavaria, on January 8, 1930, The Local.no reported Friday.
It was then recently found in the organ at Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, Norway, while the organ was being restored.
Twelve banknotes were included in the capsule, including one for five hundred million Reichsmarks.
Apparently the money went undiscovered in 1962 when the organ was also going through some repairs. The note was a warning about hyperinflation for future generations.
