How much is the statuette worth?
Ten dollars. To preserve the prestige of the awards, each Oscar winner must sign a document by which he accepts that, in case he wants to sell the statuette, he must offer it first at the Academy auction. But ten dollars is the maximum that the organization is willing to pay, so to try it is not worth it. It is estimated that the value of the statuette is about 400 dollars, but its manufacture (it is made of tin bathed in gold) costs between 500 and 900.
