Skellies for sale at auction
Story in the link.
SCHNECKSVILLE, Pa. - A pair of skeletons for sale at a Pennsylvania auction house went for more than a couple of bones.
A Lancaster County antiques dealer bought both skeletons Tuesday at Tom Hall Auctions in Schnecksville. A male skeleton in a tuxedo went for $900 and his Bible-carrying female counterpart went for $950.
The skeletons are believed to be of German or Irish origin in the late 19th or early 20th century. They each were owned at one point by a New York mortician's museum and the Independent Order of Oddfellows, the likely origin of their accessories.
