"A metal sign — this one commemorating the opening of the London headquarters in 2004 by Gordon Brown, who was the chancellor of the exchequer at the time — was expected to bring up to £1,500. But it sold for £28,750 ($45,466) to another anonymous bidder on the telephone. Also for sale was a sign with Lehman Brothers’ mission statement. It read, “We are one firm defined by our unwavering commitment to our clients, our shareholders and each other.” That, together with another Lehman sign, sold for £13,750, or $21,744."
