An American scrap dealer will probably have the best Easter ever. Why? He bought this egg from a bric-a-brac sale and was on the verge of melting it down for its gold. As luck would have it, he found out the egg is a Fabergé one that costs a whopping £20m.

Encrusted with a Vacheron Constantin watch, the egg is one of the original 50 Imperial Easter Eggs designed for the Russian royal family by Carl Fabergé.
