Albert Einstein's skull x-ray fetches £24K at auction

December 7, 2010 - London

An x-ray of Albert Einstein's skull has fetched 24,000 pounds - more than 20 times its expected price - at an auction.

The physics genius had the scan in 1945, 10 years before he died at 76.

It was part of an Icons and Idols auction that also saw a sequined glove worn by pop king Michael Jackson in the 1980s sell for 191,220 pounds, reports the Sun.

A fedora worn by the 'Thriller' singer went for 45,890 pounds.

A jacket worn by John Lennon for a magazine cover shoot in 1966 made 153,000 pounds at the sale in Beverly Hills.
