    Napoleon Bonaparte's penis - Wikicollecting
    quoting:
    In 1977, the penis was sold by a Paris auction house for $3,000. The buyer was John K. Lattimer, a professor and former chairman of urology at the Columbia University. The penis is still in possession of the Lattimer family.

    Lattimer's daughter recently declined an offer of $100,000 for the penis.

    The history;
    The day after Napoleon’s death, his autopsy was conducted by his doctor, Francesco Antommarchi, in front of 17 witnesses.

    Napoleon’s heart was removed due to his wish that it be given to his estranged wide. His stomach was also removed. Removal of the penis was not mentioned in any autopsy reports.

    It has been suggested that Antommarchi and a priest, Vignali, who administered the last rites and conducted the funeral, may both have been alone with the body at some point. A manservant named Ali claimed that during the autopsy, he and Vignali had removed parts of the body, thought it is unclear whether or not one of these parts is the penis.6

    In 1916, descendants of Vignali sold his collection of Napoleonic items, including the penis, to a British rare books firm which sold the collection for around $2,000 in 1924 to Philadelphia bibliophile A.S.W. Rosenbach.

    The penis has been described looking like a shrivelled eel, a shrivelled seahorse and a small shrivelled finger. It has been reported to be approximately 1”-1.5” long
