A first generation Apple iPod has been listed with an eye-watering £15,357 ($19,995) price tag on eBay.
At the time of their release in 2001, the original iPods from Apple sold for around £300 ($399), which would have felt fairly expensive for many people.
But now almost two decades on, one seller on the online auction site reckons that their item could fetch 50 times that price.
The seller claims the 5GB iPod has never been used or touched, and it still comes with all of the original packaging, headphones, charger and Apple manuals.
And the box for the silver iPod is still completely sealed with a clear film to prove it has never been opened by the owner.
"I am a longtime Apple device collector, and this 5-Gigabyte iPod has been in my personal possession for almost two decades, kept in cool temperatures and away from sunlight," reads the product description from seller, bestgadgets.
It continues: "I guarantee that it has been completely unused and untouched inside its original packaging, along with its iconic headphones, charging accessories, and manuals."
The item is located in New York City although the listing is open to all buyers and it can be posted worldwide.
Other first generation iPods are also up for sale on eBay, but none have the same £15,000 price tag.
One of those is listed a little closer to home in Manchester for £3,795, but this one appears to have been used although is in its original box, according to the listing.
Despite the ginormous price on the £15,000 iPod, there are 258 people (at the time of writing) watching the item on eBay.
And hundreds of people have viewed the iPod in the last hour, so there are plenty of prospective buyers - let's just see if anyone is willing to cough up £15,000 for it.
