TINFOILHAT: Pawn shop employees of Reddit, what is something people think is collectible or worth a lot of money, but is actually relatively worthless? : AskReddit

There is a conspiracy theory I read in a vintage sewing machine group that the real reason you see older Singer machines pop up for insane prices from time to time is because it’s a money laundering scheme. You put the ad up, mark it a few days later as sold, screenshot it incase the IRS comes looking, put the money in a legit bank account and toss the $15 machine you just “sold” for $1500 into the trash.After watching ads for a few months I’m beginning to think there is something to it.
