    A Chanel purse left in a Manhattan subway station held a $10,000 surprise for the man who found it.

    Richard Taverna was at the West 66th Street and Broadway stop earlier this week when he spotted the purse by a platform wall.

    He tells the West Side Rag online blog that inside, he saw only some paper with Russian writing on it.

    On Thursday evening at home, he took a closer look and discovered 100 $100 dollar bills.

    The next morning, Taverna brought the purse to the local police precinct. But first, he laid out the bills on a table and snapped a photo.

    Luckily, a woman had reported the missing money to police before going to Russia. It'll await her when she's back in January.
