Scrap Dealer's Bargain Turns out to Be Faberge Egg
LONDON March 19, 2014
There is good luck, outrageous good fortune — and now there is the case of the scrap metal dealer who found one of the eight missing Faberge imperial eggs at a flea market in the American Midwest.
This isnt the same egg that was just found, but an interesting tidbit...it is more of a Matchbox than a Hot Wheels, since it comes with its own box!

The carriage is a replica of the one that took the Tsarina to her Coronation in 1896. The tires are platinum, the windows are shaved crystal and the whole thing is encrusted with diamonds.
