Toy to be Sold for Almost $1,000,000
A man has just put up for auction a 5.5-inch high gold mug that was given to him as a child. At the time, he thought it was another toy. It turned out to be an ancient Persian goblet which was pounded out of a single sheet of gold back around 350 BC. Duke's Auction House said that it expects to sell for around $988,000.
