Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver is converting an old bank into his latest restaurant, Jamie's Italian, and the team reportedly stumbled upon unopened and unclaimed safety deposit boxes.

Inside? $1.7 million, jewelry, gold, a gun, and master recordings by Joy Division and New Order.

The healthy-eating advocate probably won't be able to keep the goodies, but they're opening up the basement vault, lined with safety deposit boxes, as a private dining room. Maybe some lucky diners will find Happy Mondays records, too.
