Giant Egg Sold by Christie's Auction House Sells for More than Double its Initial Estimate

The giant egg laid by an extinct elephant bird auctioned by Christie's auction house was sold yesterday. As we told you before, the egg's value was estimated to be $45,000 however it was bought for more than double its estimate. The egg went for 66,675 pounds ($101,813) and was sold to an anonymous buyer over the phone following around 10 minutes of heated bidding.
