Not my cup of tea, but I came across this and thought you bizarros might be interested.

Here's the online catalogue for the Baltimore Dime Museum Liquidation Auction.

Possibly expensive with the usual premiums etc, but there are a couple on nice shrunken heads, hands and other sundry creepy things.

My favourite is "Head of Harold" on page 3.

Thanks for posting that Nosher.
A treasure trove for the bizarre collector and performer. I especially like the old torture instruments and the shock therapy devices. "Methinks some stories are a forming".
It's amazing how the creative juices are stimulated by the weird and wonderful.

I'll keep an eye on the items. I wonder if there'll be an e bay listing as well.

The fake Lincoln poop is the most bizarre item there. It would fit well into any crap routine though. Smile

The Lincoln thing is a great exhibit. It has two levels of documentation. One is a certificate signed by the physician who attended his death, and the keeper of the presidential privy at Ford's Theatre, where he was shot, attesting to the reality of the thing.

The next letter is dated 1903, if I remember correctly, and says that so-and-so examined the "fecal" material, and found it to be nothing more than black NECCO wafers (a type of candy, for those outside the US).

Also, The Hand Of Spider Lil is a superb exhibit.

If anybody lives in proximity to the ADM, and hasn't seen it, you must go on one of the viewing days. Cancel any other obligations you have, even were it your own funeral, and go. It's a treasure-trove of history and bizarredom, soon to be gone. The richness of the world will be diminished for its loss.

They even named a museum wing after me. It was the wing of a stuffed duck, left wing I think, but I was proud of it.

Such wonderful stuff!

The Detector Deer, creative taxidermy used to detect aliens? What supposedly was going on with that item?

I need one.

I have plenty of fake Lincoln poop already...just waiting on the documentation
