It’s for sale. Really.

The seller is California businessman Paul Kaufmann, who first became aware that his family possessed the item in 1990. While searching among his late mother’s possessions, he happened on an ancient, pear-shaped box labeled “Beethoven.”

Oh … it’s not the entire skull … I just read this:

Kaufmann inherited the bones in 1993 and eventually sought scientists who could prove whether the fragments — each more than 3 inches long — were indeed Beethoven’s.
