Nobel sold for Ukrainian kids shatters record at $103.5M

Source: AP

NEW YORK (AP) The Nobel Peace Prize that Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov was auctioning off to raise money for Ukrainian child refugees sold Monday night for $103.5 million, shattering the old record for a Nobel.

A spokesperson for Heritage Auctions, which handled the sale, could not confirm the identity of the buyer but said the winning bid was made by proxy. The $103.5 million sale translates to $100 million Swiss francs, hinting that the buyer is from overseas.

The live auction happened on World Refugee Day. Previously, the most ever paid for a Nobel Prize medal was $4.76 million in 2014, when James Watson, whose co-discovery of the structure of DNA earned him a Nobel Prize in 1962, sold his.

Three years later, the family of his co-recipient, Francis Crick, received $2.27 million in bidding also run by Heritage Auctions.

5. Sure hope Dmitry Muratov lives somewhere other than Russia

Putler would kill him if he could get his hands on him for helping the "enemy"

7. Trump!! will soon claim he has a Nobel!! After all he has recently grifted $250M


Any bets? It is not above his audacity. He will repeat the claim until 35-40% of the country's dead cult members will swear to it.

I believe each of us has a special talent and ability the Universe/God gives us qualifications to perform for the universe itself.

This guys purpose is to save the lives of children through his generous sacrifice. Its a small ray of hope in an increasingly dismal world.
