I read the sentence on Mirror.co.uk
Mystery surrounds the withdrawal from sale on eBay of an iPhone complete with the Flappy Bird app - which was fetching a staggering than $94,000.
"...a staggering than $94000?" The conjunction 'than' is used for comparison. What does it compare with $94000 here?
This would have meant better to me - "...which was fetching a staggering $94000." Am I missing something?
