The Rider of Death Valley (Universal, 1932) estimate $4,000.<br />
<br />
A lucky family is set to make a staggering £160,000 after a hoard of old film posters they stumbled upon under the floor of their new home turned out to be 'lost' Hollywood relics.<br />
<br />
The prized stash of 17 perfectly preserved posters was discovered by Bob and Dylan Basta as they tore up the lino in the house their dad Robert was renovating. <br />
<br />
After calling in experts from leading auctioneers Heritage they found that among their treasure trove were five never-seen-before posters from the Golden Age of Hollywood.<br />
<br />
The collection is now tipped to fetch a whopping $240,000 - around £160,000 - at Heritage Auctions in Dallas, Texas.
