NY State Is Gunning For Martin Shkreli’s Rare And Historic Treasures


Martin Shkreli — the controversial pharma exec people love to hate — might have to part ways with some rare and historic treasures … like an Isaac Newton manuscript!

New York state’s tax board is going after Shkreli’s insane collection of artifacts to pay down the more than $2.8 million he owes in back taxes.

The collection, kept in Shkreli’s office, is nuts — it includes a signed Charles Darwin letter, and an antique Enigma machine — notably used by Nazi Germany to encode military communications. Also on the table:

— Stacked, 2003 photograph of Jeff Koons

— Original lithographs by Joan Miro

— Signed letters from Augusta Ada Countess of Lovelace

— Original Glass & Collage Chessboard sculpture by Dustin Yellin

— 6 pills by Damien Hirst

The judge hasn’t signed off on the order for Shkreli or his company to turn over the items. The infamous one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang album he purchased is not on the hit list.

Not yet, anyway.
