Racing pigeon - $ 1.9 million
A pigeon, or rather a two-year-old dove named New Kim, was put up for auction at the Pipa Pigeon Center at a starting price of $ 230. During tense trading, the price tag increased eight thousand times. The happy owners of the fast bird were Chinese buyers under the pseudonyms Super Duper and Hitman. The first of them in 2019 forked out for another record holder: he paid $ 1.4 million for a four-year-old pigeon Armando. This generosity is no coincidence: in recent years, the popularity of pigeon racing has skyrocketed in China. At the same time, usually at auctions, males are more expensive than females, so the final price tag of New Kim amazed the experts.

Collection of irons - 1 million rubles
Although the president did not sign on any of the irons of a resident of the Rostov region, she appreciated the collection higher than a modest St. Petersburg woman.

According to her, a collection of cast iron irons (some of which have barely survived to this day) belongs to her father. “The collection numbers over a thousand models. They can be used to decorate a restaurant or other institution,”explained the Rostovite in an interview. Varvara is not ready to sell the collection in parts. Offers to buy everything at once.
"Pharaoh's apartment" - 150 million rubles

A curiosity - a 184-meter apartment on Ostozhenka, decorated, according to the seller, "by a famous designer using high quality materials." The photo shows marble floors, gilding on every square meter, an Egyptian iconostasis (the deities are immortalized in statues, for example, in the bathroom, on the walls and doors) and a bed that resembles an ancient military vessel.
Five-kopeck coin - $ 1 million
A resourceful Tula has every chance to save up for the Pharaoh's apartment: in October Avito published an announcement about the sale of a five-kopeck coin for $ 1 million. “I bring to your attention a coin from the future - 117664. Exclusive - one for the whole world, there is no analogue. Price - $ 1,000,000. And if this coin survives until then, it will actually cost a thousand times more,”the seller says.

Snag - 2 million rubles
A resident of the city of Biysk put up for sale a "unique" snag for 2 million rubles. According to the description, a bent piece of wood comes from the Chulyshman Valley (Altai Republic), but its value is primarily in the fact that three stones have grown into a natural object.

A bottle of Schweppes - 4.5 million rubles, a cat - 1 million rubles, a string bag - 1 billion rubles

Collectible, was shelved many years ago by a Coca-Cola plant specialist for such a special occasion! " - boasts the owner of the rarity.
Another resident of Kirov decided to cash in on a cat and a string bag.

The seller noted that a million is still cheap for such a treasure. He explained the price tag of a string bag even more simply: "This is not only an opportunity to attract attention, but also a convenient and practical thing in the household."
