GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., Nov. 9 (UPI) -- A Colorado Goodwill store is auctioning a print of Salvador Dali's "The Discovery of America by Christopher Columbus."

The Grand Junction resale store said the print, which is signed and numbered 168 of 300, was spotted by a customer at the store who often points out valuable merchandise to management, KMGH-TV, Denver, reported Tuesday.

Manager Bill Atwell said store workers do not know where the print came from.

Atwell said bidding for the print reached $550 as of Monday and bidding ends Tuesday evening. The manager said similar prints have been selling for $1,000 online.
