I think every family has one relative who loves to hike through the woods with a metal detector.
One of my uncles spends a lot of time searching the wooded lot behind his house.
Over the years he turned up a few arrowheads (which look suspiciously like pointy rocks) but never found any real treasure.
Meanwhile, Ryan Parsons and his girlfriend Lisa made a life-changing find during a hike near their home in West Virginia.
A mysterious box
Parsons, a pastor, had regularly gone metal detecting as a hobby, but his girlfriend Lisa had never joined him before their hike last year.
Bringing a camera along to record the event, Parsons captured the moment when he found a signal out in the woods.
His detector led the couple to a strange button, which Parsons said was from the 1800s.
Thinking there could be more Civil War-era artifacts nearby, Parsons started digging under a suspicious rock close to the button.
What he eventually turned up was a strange, antique wooden box.
"The find of a lifetime"
Parsons could barely contain his excitement, passing the camera to Lisa so she could "document" the discovery.
"This could be the find of a lifetime," he told her.
Lisa taped Parsons as he gently dusted off the box and pried it open, warning him to be careful.
Eventually the mysterious antique opened, revealing a pair of Bible verses written on parchment.
But there was one more surprise in store for the pair.
