It has to be something small enough to actually pick up.
does it count if we saw it but didn't pick it up?
About £3k, maybe?
How much is the gift of life worth?
first day I was there, I had to help with the cash run. 250k on the table.
managed to get 5k in each hand, just to see how much I could hold
so 10 grand
or the piece of paper saying the house belongs to you
• i've carried £2k in notes before (wasn't mine).
• touched loads of antiquarian books and manuscripts and general items of historical social significance for preservation
or something. (i didn't make it, someone i worked for did)
ancient bibles are worth $$$$$$$$$$$$$
oh yeah. when we sort the tills out at work after a shift theres like 10k there. can't hold that but i've touched it.
No idea how much they cost. Maybe they weren't that expensive...
Till I saw your second sentence.
And lots of very rich people's hands.
I said it was expensive, not big.
What of it?
you've touched Jimmy Page's guitar!! Man that is awesome! Which one?? And how??
It is safe to say I'm utterly jealous of this...
THIS WEBSITE THAT'S WHAT.
Held it for all of about ten seconds, was so scared I'd drop it.
Presumed value freaks me out.
be worth, Mr. Book?
Also, do cheques count?
There's one on ABE for 16k right now, which I assume will be in fine fettle
And cheques count yes.
Is that book the 'one' you'd have if you had cash to chuck away on rare books?
That would require lengthy consideration, but it's a brilliant combination of cutting-edge science and sheer medieval fantasy accompanied by some amazing illustrations (Durer's rhino for example).
Cheque for £500k is probably my boring answer then.
I've held a gold bar. Can't remember how much it weighed exactly, but it was several kg, so easily £100,000+
which at the going rate would be nearly half a million dollars.
At the Bank of England, in the museum, you get to pick up a block of gold (as seen here: http://www.bankofengland.co.uk/education/pages/museum/exhibitions/events.aspx ).
Must be worth a lot.
Three and a half months wages. Wanted to make up for the fact that every birthday / Christmas present I'd got her before was really shit.
It got stolen a couple of months later. She didn't have contents insurance.
Never doing that again.
now i just seem to read collections of short stories more than anything else.
probably worth a few bob
I haven't held that, for the record
back then 50p was big money so holding a fifty pound note was quite exciting
anyway probably money in tills from when i worked in a shop
Quite the life my friend, quite the life.
now it was a couple of grand in the tills. oh also i tried on expensive mens watches on holiday once they were over 100k each
if we're being all metaphorical.
so i don't think we're being metaphorical
i'm gonna say no house OR car keys.
(or baby N's hand for the first time- PRICELESS).
Right i need to go back into a data room, say what you like about me, bye (till 7pm).
ALTHOUGH i wondered if it might have been a bottle of booze of some nature.
except i haven't held it, i just live in the same house as it. i've touched it. close?
anddddd okay yes. fine.
that is all
his stuff is amazing. more people should also really like patrick caulfield
They were 25k each. White gold with black diamonds in the middle and a row of white diamonds circling.
I got to hold the cushion they sat on whilst the manager in Harrods opened the perspex box they were going to travel in, flanked by 2 security guards, back down to the massive safe in the basement.
In my hand? Not on the cushion.
Would something priceless count?
by a famous artist
can I interest you in this exquisite ring, mademoiselle?
I held some share certificates total value of which were around £400k but I don't think that counts.
I try not to handle things with a high monetary value, but probably a book worth £500.
