Most expensive custom 1911?

What is the most expensive custom 1911 you have ever actually seen? Did you think it was worth it? I am not talking historical pistols here, but the works of art that are actually used by shooters not gathering dust with collectors. I am curous as to how bad (price)/good(form and function) the things really get. If you have a pic, by all means, post it please. Personally I have only dealt with Wilsons so my experience tops out at $3000. I would not be surprised to see some of youse guys to come up with examples 5 times that amount.

I own a Les Baer Concept III, which isn't too spendy at $1500. I got to handle a Clark Custom Longslide ($2500) and an Ed Brown Custom ($2800). But, the most expensive pistol that I have actually handled is a Wilson Super Grade at $3250. When I pulled the slide back, it felt like it was on bearings.

However, the most expensive shotgun I shot is a Kreighoff Crown Grade at $25,000. The skeet targets simply broke out of respect.
