(AP) A pair of skeletons for sale at a Pennsylvania auction house went for more than a couple of bones.


A Lancaster County antiques dealer bought both skeletons Tuesday at Tom Hall Auctions in Schnecksville. A male skeleton in a tuxedo went for $900 and his Bible-carrying female counterpart went for $950.


The skeletons are believed to be of German or Irish origin in the late 19th or early 20th century. They each were owned at one point by a New York mortician's museum and the Independent Order of Oddfellows, the likely origin of their accessories.


Auction winner Bill Wood says he bought the skeletons to go along with another he has at Old Mill Antiques, his Strasburg shop. He plans to resell all three.
