A RETIRED couple broke records on Channel 5's Cash in the Attic as their old banknotes pulled in serious cash.
Mr and Mrs Witt were left shocked and speechless during an episode of the show that helps contestants find hidden treasures in their homes.
The couple brought a collection of old bank notes which they said they discovered more than 30 years ago.
When the bank notes went to auction they sparked serious interest between bidders in the room and also online.
However, neither of them were expecting to hear that their collection was worth a whopping £51,000.

Following the auction, viewers were introduced to the bank notes' new owner – Palm – who is the president of the International Bank Note Society.
Palm revealed the reason they're worth so much money is due to the branch which they're originally from.
"These notes in particular have never been physically seen," she said.
"I just can't thank you enough," said Mrs Witt to Palm, adding: "Never in my wildest dreams did I ever expect those notes to get that sort of money."
