Here's a group picture :

auction

And no, it didn't close at two million, or three, or five. Or ten.

Grab on to your shorts, because seriously, twelve million six hundred fifty thousand copper pieces. 12`650`000. That's right. 919%. Yeah.

I told you it was fabulous. It was.

Congrats to the winners!
