It was sold in 1982 to a London book dealer for $249,480.

    Queen Anne Boleyn's Psalter. By tradition this tiny gold prayer book was carried by Anne to her execution where she presented it to one of the ladies attending her on the scaffold, her friend Margaret Wyatt. It would have been worn hanging from a chatelaine.
