The eBay Life Blog "Score of the Day" is a Texas water meter cover purchased for $0 and sold for..

I just had a student email me about a major score.  He found a water meter cover in his yard (four acres) when he was digging a new water main line and ran into a buried pile of construction rubble.  He listed it at auction starting at $34.99.  It ended up selling for ...........


   
$81.88!!!

According to my student, he thinks it sold because he "researched the product pretty thoroughly and included information about the foundry that made the cover, the address, and the original patent for the cover."


Awesome job!
