When returned to the ground, Oswald's body was placed in a new coffin - hence this opportunity for a lucky buyer to acquire his old casket.
#6 Stairs from the Eiffel Tower - €105,400
Perfect for that loft conversion... An original spiral staircase from the Eiffel Tower sold for €105,400 at Paris's Drouot auctioneers in December 2009.
The iconic Eiffel Tower was considered an eyesore when it was first erected as the entrance to the World's Fair in Paris in the late-19th century. The 40 steps, dating from 1889 when the tower was first opened, are 7.8 metres high.
They were removed from the tower during renovation work in 1983, and later appeared at Drouot's 2009 auction alongside various other Parisian architectural treasures.
#5 Napoleon's penis - $100,000
Its whereabouts were unknown for decades, but Napoleon's penis finally appeared in 1916.
Descendants of the priest who administered the last rites to Napoleon in 1821 sold an item claimed to be the emperor's penis to a rare book company.
The appendage, believed to be between an inch to an inch-and-a-half in length, was last seen at auction in 1977. A professor at Columbia University got his hands on it for $3,000.
Napoleon's penis has since been passed down through the family. Believe it or not, the professor's daughter recently turned down an offer of $100,000 to part with it.
#4 Apollo 11 navigational chart - $218,000
This piece is a historically important as it is unique, having been used by Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to determine their exact position on the lunar surface, just after their historic 1969 moonlanding.
It appeared at Bonhams' Space Sale in New York in 2009 and, as one of the few flight devices returned from the lunar surface to be available on the market, was a major highlight in the sale. In the end, it sold for $218,000.
"This star chart was the single most critical navigational device we used while on the Moon," wrote Aldrin in an accompanying letter. You can't beat provenance like that.
#3 Unique jewelled caterpillar - £300,000
Jewels made to resemble butterflies are not uncommon. Yet the butterfly's less-celebrated precursor, the caterpillar, is often overlooked by jewellers.
Although this wasn't the case at a Sotheby's rare jewellery auction in 2010. Among the highly-valued lots for sale was a rare gold, enamel, diamond, pearl, ruby, emerald and turquoise "Ethiopian Caterpillar".
Thought to have been made by Henri Maillardet around 1820, the caterpillar is even more remarkable for featuring a special knurled wheel which gives it 'a life-like motion'. It sold for £300,000.
#2 The only Billy the Kid photo in existence - $2.3m
The legend of notorious outlaw Billy the Kid still captivates people 130 years after his death. So it's no surprise that a one-of-kind memorabilia piece directly linked to the gunslinger drew bidders from around the world when it auctioned in June 2011.
