A 14-karat gold Lego piece donated to a Pennsylvania Goodwill store was originally priced at $15 — but ended up selling for over $18,000.

Goodwill officials said workers at the store in Du Bois were sorting through a bag of jewelry transferred from the State College Goodwill store when they found the Lego piece, a small Bionicle mask.

You wouldn’t think anything of it. It came in a little old-looking Lego box,” Chad Smith, the vice president of e-commerce and technology for Goodwill in North Central Pennsylvania, told People.

He said the piece was initially listed online for $14.95.

“We didn’t know it was worth anything until people started asking if they could buy it for $1,000,” Smith told WPVI-TV.

Workers researched the piece and discovered it was an extremely rare “Kanohi Hau” mask. Lego created only 30 of the gold masks.

“It was a giveaway, and there were 25, I believe, that were given away and five remained for people who actually worked at Lego.
