This couple made an absolutely unbelievable find. Their amazing story makes you think about how marvellously unpredictable life is.
When the couple unwrapped the note inside, they found a message in English, German and Dutch. The finder was asked to fill in some information on where and when they had found the bottle, before returning it to the Marine Biological Association in Plymouth, UK. There was also a reward with one shilling for the find.
Indeed, the association sent a shilling to the couple as they had promised. Marianne and Horst are now waiting for the Guinness World Records to confirm if it is the oldest message in a bottle ever to be found. It is believed the current record holder is a bottle found after 99 years.
