A drawing purchased at a Massachusetts yard sale for $30 is nowhere near worth that much. It’s actually worth about $10 million more. A Boston-based art collector named Clifford Schorer was asked to look at a drawing that someone bought for $30 at a yard sale. It turns out, it was a piece by German Renaissance artist Albrecht Durer, who died in 1528, and it’s value was put at $10 million.
