Within the first 48 bids on eBay, the masterpiece had already reached
£20100 ($26,479). Moments later, a 49th bidder topped that, with £20300 ($26743.25). Less than 10 minutes later, the 69th bidder offered £65,700.00
($86,553.28). To put that into perspective, that is over the average yearly salary in the United states ($ 80,843).
