If you’re the kind of person looking for x-rays of the skulls of infamous mass murders, we have some good news for you. Earlier yesterday, an x-ray of Adolf Hitler’s skull was put up for auction, starting at just $100.

The description of the skull x-ray on the auction page is listed as:

“AN X-RAY OF ADOLF HITLER'S SKULL A contemporary x-ray of Adolf Hitler's skull on photographic fil, 7" x 9", showing nearly the entire skull and including Hitler's extensive upper bridge work. This image was once part of a 47pp. classified printed report issued by the U.S. Military Intelligence Service Center, Nov. 29, 1945, which 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 report was the result of interrogations of doctors Theodore Morrell, Erwine Giesing, Walter Loehlein, Karl Weber, A. Nissle and E. Brinkmann who each specialized in different areas of treatment. Fine.”

For all those wanting in on the auction, it was unfortunately only listed for one day only, February 19th. The maximum bid was expected to be $200-300. However, after 41 bids, the winner walked away from the auction having paid almost triple the estimate, $1500.

The name of the successful bidder remains a mystery - which is probably for the best.
