AN extremely rare McDonald's straw from the 1980s has gone on sale and it's set to fetch a fortune.

The unopened straw has been listed on eBay for an asking price of £1,500 by a seller in Luton, Bedfordshire.

And the flogger claims that the rare fast food item dates all the way back to 1986.

Despite it's hefty price the seller has insisted the McDonald's straw commands the eye-watering fee because it is a collector's item.

And if you're on the fence the four-figure item comes with free express delivery to sweeten the deal.

The listing reads, “Rare Vintage Plastic McDonald's 1986 Design Straw – Still In wrapper – Unopened and in good condition for age.
