If you were so wealthy that you could buy anything that you wanted, what would it be? Would you still clip coupons to save money at the grocery store or would you throw caution to the wind and spend like there was no tomorrow? Some of the people who were born into wealthy families are just like the average blue collar worker in many ways. Not everyone who has tons of cash spends it on extravagant items, but there are those who have so much money, that it’s never been an issue. They spend money like we drink water. There are also collectors who would go to any length and pay any price to obtain the treasures that they place a high personal value upon. We’ve found 20 of the most expensive things in the word. Some of them are high end collectibles and others are novel items. Would you buy any of the things on our list?
Huia Bird Feather – $10,000
Can you believe that one single feather costs $10,000? This is no ordinary feather and they are very difficult to find. Plumage from the Huia bird was once used to decorate the wardrobe of the Maori chiefs. This was tradition, but it has gone by the wayside. Huia birds are now extinct, so the feathers that have been gathered from them are very rare and there will be no way to obtain them once those which remain are gone. These are considered to be the most valuable feathers on the planet, so if you’re looking for a novelty that is highly collectible, for ten grand, you can own a single Huia bird feather. The most recent sale of a Huia Bird Feather took place at an auction in New Zealand.
