That's true! I once found a 5 cent coin from Cyprus and one from Slovakia :)

I found these three notes (total 90e) from the street at 04:00 at night or so. Nobody was around, so I took the notes. On further inspection I found out that the law says any find worth more than 20e must be taken to the police, so I did so. Nobody claimed those notes, and the police has now paid that 90e to my bank account after three months of waiting for the proper owner to show up, and apparently around two months of processing to get the money to my bank account.

Yesterday I found this 10 note.

It may have interesting tales to tell us, given the place where I found it :P

Some days ago, near our front door. My wife, carrying our child, asked me: "Look there. Could you take it?"

Last week, I found a fiver at a shopping center... which was immediately returned to its owner. I was not able to register it, of course, but technically I found it. :lol:

I would have given the owner a fiver from my own wallet, and kept the fiver I found ;)

I believe I only a tenner on me at the time. I remember because we were in line at a cafe, I paid my expense with it and got a fiver and some change back. The lady in front of me dropped her fiver and didn't notice it right before my turn. :)
