I just googled the one cent magenta and it last sold at auction for over $9 million, so I am not sure the tre skilling yellow is supposed to be worth more. They have to weigh about the same.

Although it's not something you can hold in your hand, much less collect, antimatter is actually the most valuable substance by weight. Its cost has been estimated between tens of billions and trillions of dollars per gram. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antimatter#Cost ). A concentrated gram of it in one place would be exceedingly dangerous, though, and usually it's made and studied a few particles and atoms at a time.

Rare stamps like the penny magenta and treskilling yellow are indeed the most valuable objects by weight, though, as antimatter wouldn't really count as an object as there's never been enough of it in one place to even been seen with the human eye.

The wildbird nests for soup was something indeed. Thank you for this video share. The horses are going to make it because of becoming a breed. Nice
note to Artful Hinger- The Van Allen probes are something new to me.

At 3:59... all 6 of Shakespeare's known signatures were signed "during his lifetime"... Well, they would sort of have to be, wouldn't they?
