For some buyers, "antique" just isn't old enough. A Bonhams and Butterfields auction set a new record for a 65 million-year-old dinosaur nest that was sold yesterday. The raptoid nest was in excellent condition and contained 22 unhatched eggs - most of which were incredibly well preserved. The final price was nearly $420,000. As usual, the buyer will remain anonymous, but there must be more than a few museum curators hoping to get it donated to their collections.
