Talk about inflation. A silver dollar sold for a record-breaking 4-point-1 million dollars tonight.
Of course, it is no ordinary silver dollar. This one was originally minted as a gift for a foreign sultan.

That was in 18-34, one of only eight silver dollars minted that year.
It's even more rare because it is dated 18-04. Since silver dollars were not in mass production, the mint simply used an old mold, with a 30 year old date that is now worth millions.

And to re-issue the film Yellow Submarine. The new visually enhanced, musically remastered version of the film that the Beatles actually had very little to do with is being premiered this evening. The Beatles voices were in fact performed by other actors. But the films producers think there's a market today for the psychedelic colors and bell bottoms. Some fans came out not so much for the movie -- but the music.
