    Oh brother. Billy the kid story is actually local crime boss Murphy, in lincoln new mexico (town is now a museum) who wouldn't allow competition so they went to war. Billy scapegoat in story. He was a ranch hand when the war began. A kid literally. Who went down for shooting murphys sheriff. They don't know if Billy was the one who shot sheriff Brady; but he was the only one not pardoned in the war. They were going to hang him when he shot 2 deputies and escaped prison.

    You would have to be a complete moron not to be able to identify a faberge egg with the makers name on it and consider melting it down. Nearly as big a moron as the one who sold it for $14k!

    I'm certain that Constable painted The Hay Rain prior to our invention of military missiles. But nice try.

    Give us a fuquing break, no one would pay $14000 for a garage sale trinket and then melt it down. There is not enough gold on that egg to equal the value he paid for it. Also, no one would believe that someone found a Faberge' Egg at a yard sale, and no one would sell a fourteen thousand dollar item at any yard or garage sale. You can bet he actually paid that much for it, he bought it on the black market and made it look like he was that innocent lucky purchaser. Sorry folks the story does not add up, and you can bet that item was originally stolen.
    As another poster below, "Hummingbird" commented it may have been a misprint and may have been actually purchased for $14 at most

    I found a painting at a garage sale. I haven't researched it fully, but I'm sure it's worth at least $200,000.
    I'd be willing to let it go for $100,000 right now.

    Rick from Pawn Stars would have offered the owner of the Faberge' egg a piece of chewed bubble gum and a coupon good for one cheeseburger at Jack-In-The-Box.

    The people who are pathetic are. the ones who sell the items for so much money yet won't take it. How selfish and arrogant. The Pearl could have helped his family. What are they thinking I will tell you. They are saying their family's are not worth anything to them.

    Which "Royal family" was the Faberge egg returned to for $33 million? The Romanovs? It was actually sold to a private collector whose identity remains undisclosed. Dealers guard that sort of information well as it is not in their interests to reveal purchasers who wish to remain anonymous. A Royal family? I very much doubt it.

    I just the other day bought a Marantz stereo cassette recorder at a donation center for $5, Amazon has one on sale for $340. The next day I bought a chrome coffee maker/ bean grinder at the same store, for $10, looked on the website for the owner's manual, they cost $219 new from the manufacturer. Go to thrift stores near where rich people live. And go around tax time, people donate valuable stuff for the tax writeoffs!

    Teri Horton, the owner of the Jackson Pollock painting, lives in Southern California, and has never been able to prove the provenance, how the painting came to where she purchased it. Jackson Pollock's brother lived in southern California before he died and was probably the owner of the painting. After his death the painting seems to have made its way into Teri's possession.

    My favorite find is a small coffee cup with finger handle. Lady said she paid about $1.75 cents for blue and white hand sized piece. On antiques roadshow - worth about $160,000 bucks!
    Also, the cup had a small chip near the top. Unbelievable.

    Hell, I can do better. When Carol Channing lived in Modesto, she brought a lot of her stuff here with her.. But when her husband died, and decided to move back to New York, she donated a lot of it to Hope Charities.. I went there, and asked to see some of the things that she donated.. Thank God, it is ran by a bunch of old ladies, because I wound up buying a $17,000 Hermes bag. IT IS GOURGOUS !! I only paid $ 5.00 for it, because they price all their bags the same !! I found some good Coach bags, and Pradas there too.. I realllly like that store !!
