4 Eric Clapton 2014 Fender Strat Owned and Played by Eric Clapton
One valid reason for something to be sensibly expensive is its story. What makes this guitar so expensive and so special is that it was owned by the legendary Eric Clapton and was used in his performance at Royal Albert Hall in 2014, where he and his notable musician friends, paid tribute to JJ Cale, the singer-songwriter who died in 2013. The concert was entitled The Breeze: An Appreciation of J.J. Cale, produced by Clapton himself and Simon Climie. Fender Strat is short for Fender Stratocaster. This electric guitar is versatile and is suitable for a variety of genres. Most guitars have mirrored its double-cutaway figure.
3 1796 $2.50 Capped Bust Quarter Eagle
This coin is worth a lot more than its face value of $2.50. Only 963 of these were minted and produced in 1796. The capped bust is also called the “turban head” depicting Liberty wearing a turban-like headdress. This was designed by Robert Scot. It has two varieties. This particular coin is part of the earlier variety, which has no stars, exclusively produced in 1796. It is rare since $2.50 was a big denomination then for ordinary commerce. In 1800, its equivalent to 2015 dollars is $71.12. Oddly enough, it wasn’t accepted in bank transactions, which explains the limited number of the coin’s production. It has a grade of G-4 which means that its rim is still intact despite being heavily worn.
