Churchill cigar sells for €10k
A CIGAR half-smoked by Winston Churchill, pictured during a 1947 trip to Paris, has sold for more than $12,000 (€10,143) during an online auction.
Boston-based RR Auction says the fourinch cigar was bought on Wednesday evening by an unnamed collector.
The auction company says the former British prime minister smoked the cigar on May 11, 1947, at Le Bourget Airport.
Included was a photo signed by Churchill, showing him with the cigar.
