I remember reading somewhere about the solid silver cube. 2,500 existing in the world gives me hope.

I remember that in the 80's, a rubik's cube was made that was made of gold with different colored jewels for the face colors. I think there was only 1 made and, if I remember correctly, its cost was in the million dollar range.

 Post subject: I BOUGHT ONE!
PostPosted: Sun Aug 12, 2001 4:57 am 
Last Christmas I bought one of these on eBay. It was #194 of 2500. Surprisingly I got it for only $800. (Remember they originally cost $2,000 and sold out immediately.) Here's some facts on it.
They were made by Seven Towns in care of Diamond Cutters International in 1995. They also made the Gold one with the jeweled sides that has an estimated value at 1.5 million dollars.
They Weigh 2 pounds each. It's very surprising when one holds one of these for the first time how heavy it is. You know you are getting your dollar's worth.
It's White/Blue, Green/Yellow, and Red/Purple. Not sure why they switched Orange to Purple. 8 coats of enamel paint per side.
Not recommended for speed cubing. Plastic can give a little when turning but silver can't. It turns easily only if it is lined up correctly. Besides, you don't want to do speed cubing on something this heavy.
Center white face replaced by original Rubik's Cube Logo and the limited edition number.
Haven't opened mine up. Unsure if it is possible.
Hope this helps you all and if you happen to find one for a good price, take it. They are valued at $10,000 (?) and can only get more valuable. I always though it was unusual to see other puzzles such as the dogic or rubik's domino sell for as much or more that the price I paid for the silver cube. At least the cube has some monetary value.

So, Michael,

Does this mean you are the man who has everything?
