These paperclips would be made of a special formula of titanium and copper. They would otherwise be perfectly normal. But they would be marketed at $10 each, for the rich and foolish.

When you trade your paperclips do you trade the red ones last? http://oneredpaperclip.blogspot.com/

       I wonder how many houses you could trade one of them up for.   

       [2 fries] We saw that guy on TV and it really was an incredible story.   

       [Voice] These shouldn't be used on just any old paper. There must be some terribly expensive papers made from silk and golden threads and dragonfly wings...Oh, I'll give it a bun I guess.

       No, because then the government would want to buy them for political documents.
