This Macabre X-Ray of Hitler's Skull Just Sold at Auction

By Jesus Diaz on at

You're looking at an x-ray of Hitler's skull, which just sold for $1500 (£898).

According to the auction site, it was part of a 47-page 1945 classified report issued by the US Military Intelligence Service Center that "contained highly-detailed data obtained from Adolf Hitler's six chief physicians, along with ten x-rays of various views of Hitler's skull and several EEGs."

The site was only taking bids for the x-ray image for one day, starting out at $100 (£59.81) and was expected to top-out at $200-$300 (£119-179). After 41 bids notching up through the hundreds, the successful bidder walked away with the image for $1500 (£898).
