A neat luxury item: 99 copies of a book on Michelangelo, retailing for 100.000 (about $150,000). Bound in handcarved marble, printed on artisan paper, guaranteed by the sellers for 500 years. A fine repository for occult secrets, target for an art theft, or wallet-blowing antique 500 years from now. ("Yes, only 99 were ever made, and only 6 are offworld that I know of, including these three....")
