In an article in The Sun, a man appears as a guest on The Antiques Roadshow and brings in a toolbox for valuation. He is left stunned when he finds out that the toolbox isn't really a toolbox but an item of great historical value.

The man's toolbox was a big, green, heavy box.

The man claimed that he had found the toolbox in his father-in-law's garden shed. He thought it would make a "lovely toolbox."

However, the front of the box was marked with the name, Seargent F.L. Church and a service number. Inside the toolbox lay a piece of complicated equipment that was once used as a World War II spy radio.

An antique expert at the show revealed that the price of the World War II radio could be as high as 15,000 pounds (almost $19,000).
