Briton named Harry Potter sold book about namesake wizard for 27.5 thousand pounds

It turns out that a man named Harry Potter really exists, and he also sells rare copies of J.K. Rowling’s famous book at auction. The real character is a 33-year-old young man who was born in Hampshire, the father of three children. He works as a sales manager, loves to dress up as Potter and read books about the famous wizard.

According to the auction house Hansons, the man sold his copy of the book “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” for 27.5 thousand pounds – that’s almost 2.7 million rubles. Despite the fact that the book is pretty shabby – it is read almost to the holes.

The rare copy is one of the first 500 printed copies issued. It was given to Harry by his father. Then Harry was only eight years old. He wants to spend all the proceeds from the sale on a trip with his wife to Africa. “I am very glad that the book is sold. – said the Briton. – With this money we can go to Kenya and scatter the ashes of my dead father.”

By the way, as the real Harry Potter admits, no one believes that this is his real name. “When I played football in my youth, the referee threatened me with a red card for saying my name was Harry Potter,” he says. “When I met my wife Philippe on vacation in Greece, she didn’t believe me either. my current boss found out that my name was Harry Potter, he said he should pay me more because people will always remember me. “
