Schools sitting on Harry Potter goldmines?

Some schools might be sitting on valuable proof editions of the first Harry Potter book.

Two hundred copies of the first edition of JK Rowling’s “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” are still not accounted for. There were sent out to schools for feedback. They are now valuable items for collectors, so could net these schools a sum of £16,000 for each copy.
