On the spot, agent 007 raises the bidding to find out who is selling the work, or to understand why a potential buyer would pay double the price.
Estimated by Jim Fanning at 250,000 or 300,000 pounds, the egg, with the help of James Bond, is sold at 500,000 pounds. The secret service agent then hastens to follow the mysterious buyer.
