As I recently reported, skulls appear to up for sale everywhere you look. First we saw the Skull and Bones ballot box and now the Beethoven skull.
Evidently, skull collecting is a hot thing, and everyone is clamoring to get their hands on this privately owned collectible. The owner's ancestor took part in Beethoven’s exhumation, and decided that his skull would be a nice souvenir of that moment. Feel free to send the owner an email if you are interested in the Beethoven skull.
