I think that this is sure a historical piece to be interested in. After having looked into my pocket I found, that I do not have enough cash to bid for it.
Anybody interested in historical uranium or thorium ore or salts? Or in ore samples collected from the soil of the US South-West – my favoured place to spend vacations since decades?
Offers not beyond $100k accepted.

Your chance to own an interesting tidbit of history (if you have a spare ~$200k)
MANHATTAN PROJECT VIEWING WINDOW.
An approximately 54 x 36 inch rectangle of heavily leaded glass, 6 inches thick, approximately 1500 lbs, on custom antique wooden cart, glass illuminated from below with 3 custom LED lights. This high-tech glass specimen is composed of a high percentage of lead oxide, 70%, producing its deep yellow color.
Subsequently purchased from the federal government by a salvage operator for its metal window casements, the glass passed through the hands of a collector and into the hands of the present owner.
