Great Gift for a Billionaire: Statue of Liberty's Nose
Guernsey's Auction House will be having an interesting auction, a nude photo negative of Marilyn Monroe, the original Yankee Stadium last home run ball, and most exciting, the tip of the nose of the Statue of Liberty, actually a backup replacement piece, one of only three in existence (one is already on Lady Liberty's nose), created back in the 1980's.
To give you an idea of how big the Statue of Liberty is, the copper nose tip piece measures two feet long. The auction will be held on September 24.
