Question Most expensive toadstool coral

As the title says, does anyone know what the most expensive toadstool is? We all know they come in different shapes, colors and polyp extensions but what makes the prices vary beside location? Also not known as an expensive coral but interesting nonetheless on which is valued the highest. My local fish store called the toadstools I purchased awhile back imperials and said they were on the rare side. To me they look like your typical toadstool but I still find them to be very nice. Can anyone chime in on this one? I know tyree toadstools are very popular with their green polyps but are they priced on the higher end for toadstools? From the information I've gathered it seems the Japanese deep water toadstool is the most expensive, is that correct? Also if anyone can contribute pictures of their toadstools that would be much appreciated, always love to see what's out there.

Yeah the yellow stuff is the most expensive as already mentioned. The new one that is being collected, however, is the weeping willow toadstool and those seem to top the prices of others by a few bucks
