3336680_3THE BOAT IS WORTH AS MUCH AS A PAIR OF SHOES FROM “JACKIE O”
The small boat, “Scallop,” (12 feet long and 6 feet wide, made in the winter of 1969/70) was restored to its original splendor and auctioned in Boston by RR Auction house: guess, after 9 raises, how much it was sold for? Certainly to less than you expect: $13,750, about 12,000 euros. The same amount at which, in the same auction, a pair of Jacqueline’s shoes was sold. Two wax candles also belonging to the legendary “Jackie O” on the other hand were batted for $10,000.
