    How much would that normally be worth?

    I didn't see it of course, but judging by the average price of ironwood blocks I see on the net, 50 blocks @ $40 a piece would be $2,000.

    Yeah. I think that's a fairly conservative number. Really nice blocks can go for much more. Prices have gone up a lot in recent years.
