Which famous pop star depicted by Andy Warhol realised GBP51.6 million at a recent auction? How much did Oliver Cromwell's coffin plate sell for, and what happened to his famous wart? Which Hollywood film led to the recovery of a Hungarian avant garde masterpiece? What would a collector pay for the real Batmobile?
