Want A Piece of the Hindenburg?

Got a spare $10,000 dollars sitting around? Love history?  And want a piece of the Hindenburg disaster for your very own?  Well, you’re actually too late!

A pitcher and a tray, which were hidden (actually buried, because guards wouldn’t allow anything to be removed from the crash site) and then dug up a few days after the catastrophe.  They were privately held until 2009, when they were sold to an auction house.

Recently, they were sold for close to $10,000 each ($10,735 for the tray, $8,435 for the pitcher) at auction.  So now someone has a bit of our shared catastrophic history.
