Two sisters from Virginia sold this cornflake for $1,350 on eBay.

"We were biting our nails all the way up to the finish, seeing what would happen," said Melissa McIntire, 23. "There's a lot of relief involved."

The winner of the auction, which lasted more than a week, is the owner of a trivia Web site who wants to add the cornflake to a traveling museum.

"We're starting a collection of pop culture and Americana items," said Monty Kerr of Austin, Texas. "We thought this was a fantastic one."

I guess that means Illinois is worth at least that much. ;)

It's kind of like the "Jesus M&M" that was on Ebay...I saw a news story on it a couple of years ago--some lady claimed she saw Jesus' face in a peanut M&M and so she decided to sell it.
