Adolf Hitler's phone sells for more than $240,000

Adolf Hitler's personal telephone, which the Fuehrer used to dictate

many of his World War II commands, sold at auction for $243,000, the US house selling it announced. Originally a black Bakelite phone, later painted crimson and engraved with Hitler's name, the relic was found in the Nazi leader's Berlin bunker in 1945 following the regime's defeat. The auction house Alexander Historical Auctions, which did not reveal the winning bidder's identity, had estimated its worth between $200,000 and $300,000. The starting bid for the auction on Sunday was set at $100,000. The Maryland company auctioned off more than 1,000 items including the phone and a porcelain sculpture of an Alsatian dog for $24,300. Both winners bid by telephone.
