Valuer Helen James
"The stunning die-cast models are only one-eighteenth of the real cars’ size, but feature the same leather seats, windscreen wipers and windows.

The mystery private collector, who does not want to be named, is thought to have spent more than 20 years amassing the cars, which come from all over the world."

This comfortably eclipsed the previous record paid for a classic car, in Italy a year earlier, where an early 1960s Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa sold at public auction for $12.2 million. Rare though such headline sales remain, classic car values at all levels appear to be growing exponentially. Once the preserve of a small band of enthusiasts, classic cars have become the ideal choice for any investor who wants a little more in return than just hard cash."

"HARTFORD — Cheryl Dunson knew she had found something special when she saw the small black notebook, covered in a plastic sleeve, inside a cardboard box of old memorabilia at the Connecticut League of Women Voters.
The notebook, found last year, contained the views of Connecticut legislators on the issue of women’s suffrage.
Recorded inside, in meticulous blue script, were the memoirs of a suffrage leader who interviewed members of the all-male Connecticut General Assembly more than 90 years ago on whether women should be granted the right to vote."
