Mills College will be selling two of its prized possessions after some financial turmoil, reports SFist.

The women's college in Oakland, Calif., will be putting up for sale a rare Shakespeare folio from 1623 and an original Mozart score. Both were gifts to the college in 1977.

The college laid off staff and claimed a financial emergency in 2017 and continues to face financial difficulties. The sales of both of these items are supposed to offset these woes.

In similar sales elsewhere, a Shakespeare first folio was sold for $6.1 million in 2001, and a Mozart-penned score brought in just under $500,000.
