I think Molly mentions getting a salary at some point, and Harry says, “What?!?” I’m sure Mab wouldn't stiff Harry, due to her obligations as Queen, so his money is likely piling up in a bank account - or vault - somewhere. And Mab would act all innocent and say, “You never asked.” Maybe his account is with Hades? ;)
OK, I could see that.
Harry turning out to have million$ (that really, he doesn't need) in some account Mab set up for the WK... Just after he works through some (painful) Harry-esque solution to not having a bit of cash when  convenient.
That's a VERY Harry thing.

And Mab probably pays in gold bullion or something else not easily liquid or transportable. A vaultful of Roman pennies?

There’s a WOJ that says Harry doesn’t make money as a Winter Knight because his salary is power, basically. According to Jim, if Harry made a salary salary, it would also require him to be taking shifts on the Winter Court’s schedule as opposed to doing things more his way.

That makes excellent sense, actually.

Think about Harry's negotiation with Mab:  what he bargained for was a healed back, and POWER.  If he had included "oh, and enough money for a comfortable living," I doubt she'd have quibbled, nor made the cash hard to collect.  But it ... Really wasn't on Harry's agenda when he negotiated.  It really, REALLY wasn't.

So it's not part of the deal.

Harry:

1. Lives on a remote island with his own private dock.
2. Has a time share on a yacht.
3. Is a premiere member of the most exclusive health club in Chicago.
4. Cruises Chicago in a vintage Rolls Royce Silver Wraith.
5. Has been spotted at the ultra-chic club Zero.
6. Vacations in Mexico and Scotland at the drop of a hat.

Clearly, Harry is a bazillionaire. He isn't a slob; he's eccentric.

Well.... When you put it like that. lol
هل أخذت الغاب مثلي منزلاً دون القصور
فتتبعت السواقي وتسلقت الصخور
هل تحممت بعطره وتنشفت بنور
وشربت الفجر خمراً من كؤوس من أثير

Yeah but not all at once.

You dump 25 LBs of Stones on the market all at once and its going to affect the price AND catch the attention of people whose attention you don't want.

Also all this was in the bag carried out by an average sized woman, I suspect its closer to 5 pounds.

Edit: Some one els  has done the math.  Once its all sold  think 7 Figures not 6. https://www.paranetonline.com/index.php/topic,53065.msg2318329.html#msg2318329
