14. Everyone else missed it
At that time, many people had seen the dresser and inspected it before the sale. Everyone, the professional appraiser and the family of the deceased to whom the estate belonged, missed the secret part of the dresser.
It's amazing to think about how even the immediate family members of the man do not know about the secret dresser – and that maybe he did not know it. Apparently, the deceased had inherited the dresser from his parents who lived in Michigan. So it's not unthinkable that the drawer was hidden in secrecy for decades, waiting to be discovered. There were, however, more incredible revelations about the hidden contents of the dresser.
