    The media reported that it would likely sell for 1.7 million but that was only to generate interest in the story.

    Auction fees brought the total to over two hundred grand. I watched the auction end and the gavel dropped at $160,000.

    It went for so much less because if you put it under a telescopic zoom lens from the hubble family there is a microscopic nick that can be barely see yet it is there and coin collectors dropped the value 1,6 million dollars LOL they are a strange lot
