Jackie paid $15,000 for the large head of Ashurbanipal. I know what you guys are thinking..."that's three Rolex's!!!"...or, "My GOD, that's half of a cheap Mercedes!!!"
That head was appraised by Butterfield and Butterfield at $40,000. That would be a "fair" price, meaning no less and as much more as the market would bear. The copy the University has is insured at $50,000. I gave Jackie a copy of the appraisal...if they are ever robbed or the place burns down, they can claim the full amount of its value.
Not bad huh?
