This is a story of regret that happened in 2007. The original owner wanted to sell his old bottle of ale on auction. The bottle came with an attached story that explained the history of it. The ale was specifically brewed for Sir Edward Belcher for his 1822 arctic expedition. The bottle was not titled properly on EBay. It sold for only 300 dollars. The person who bought it immediately put it back up on EBay with the right description and title. It sold for 500 thousand dollars!
