What's The Largest Amount of Money You Found?

I found a 1GBP coin in the park today, which is a bit odd since I'm in NYC

When I was about 13-14 (~15 years ago) I saw a man drop some bills from his wallet while he was getting into his car and driving away, I went over and found a total of about 400NIS (about $150-$200 back then)

That's the largest amount I ever found.

Maybe $20. I am just not a very lucky person.

I found about 100$ in a wallet once. Unfortunately, I later found the person it belonged to.

So. If he left his wallet out, that person doesnt deserve to get the money back. You're too kind, Scot.

Re: What's The Largest Amount of Money You Found?

I found almost $300 - moved into a new apartment, I pulled out the stove from the wall to clean and there was a roll of bills hidden in the back.

The previous tenant must have been hiding the money and forgot about it when they moved. Thank you, previous tenant.
