9 Most Expensive and Weird Things Sold at Auctions
Queen Victoria’s underwear
If you thought that John Lennon’s toilet was weird enough, then what do you say about some undies owned by Queen Victoria? The underwear was sold in 2015 for $16.300 and they were special because they had her royals initials “VR”, which means Victoria Regina. The undies were kept in a temperature-controlled room and they were also packaged based on various hygiene rules.
“On these particular knickers, there is a chevron section, which is where they were taken up slightly as Queen Victoria got older and essentially she shrunk in stature. That element got the collectors really excited because you can then date them quite specifically to the last 10 years of her life,” said Richard Edmonds.
