This single, hand-painted page from the Koran was valued at $40-60AUD by the auctioneers at Bargain Hunt Auctions (Australia), so on this one occasion their experts may have slightly miscalculated, since the final bid was for $74,000 (£41,458). The real kicker is that no one is really sure how old it is, where it came from or any of the most important bits of information. They said the frame itself is guessed to be worth $3, but they've been wrong before!
