Reputedly a chest thrown into Boston Harbour during The Boston Tea Party, via luxist.com. Bidding starts at three quarters of a million, quite a lot for an old chest with a bit of sea water damage... Off for a cup of tea now as it happens, the giving up takeaway coffee lark is working well, wish I'd kept a tally of how much I've been saving.
