It pays to find out if you own an unknown 14th Century Psalter!

Cortez writes " The Earl of Macclesfield finally got around to cleaning up his library a couple of years ago and found "The 225-page illuminated 14th Century work, previously unknown to scholars, is considered one of the most important of its kind." While not a 1st edition Harry Potter, it sold for £1.7m, which is probably a lot in real money. The Earl is still looking for his overdue copy of "Chaucer for Dummies" MOre @ THe Beeb"

Real Money

While not a 1st edition Harry Potter, it sold for £1.7m, which is probably a lot in real money. If by real money they mean the U.S. Dollar, which is weaker that the British Pound, it would be a lot of money. 3.2 Million dollars to be exact. You need $1.84 US dollars to get one British pound.
