But how much did they sell it for? Surely, if it's an extinct species you can charge a bit extra..
There is a bit of a paradox here. If you are selling an example of the species, it is not yet extinct. The last bird doesn't acquire additional value until it is gone, or at least dead.

One should not be too casual about calling a species extinct, remember the Coelacanth.
