First of all this is train related as it happened at an LHS. Secondly, this story just happened. Thirdly, it just happened at Van hobbies in Vancouver, BC. And now the story. This guy brings in a box of train equipment and other goodies to sell to the store. The store buys the lot for an amount less than $400 (my understanding is the amount is well under $200). When some one in the store cleans out the box, they find a toy "live steam" boat in the bunch of items. The boat is put on a shelf where a customer spies it and offers $7000. The folks in the store become curious and decide to put it on ebay to see what it will sell for. It sells for $79,100 American, over $103,000 Canadian. Turns out the boat was made on or priori to 1906 and is very collectable.
