How Much Is a Letter Worth?


How much is a letter worth? Well, I guess it depends on whether you're talking about money or sentimentality. And, I guess it depends on who wrote it.

If you're talking about money, apparently a letter can be worth $3.2 million if it's written by the first president of the United States.

A letter written by George Washington sold for that much -- $3,200,000.00 -- on Friday at Christie's auction in New York. You can read more about it at the Washington Post.

I believe something similar from Thomas Jefferson was just found. And my letters? I'm with phonelady. Probably not worth much at all.

Thanks for joining the ride!
