Reagan’s Blood to Be Auctioned

Ronald Reagan’s foundation said Monday that a German company’s plan to auction a vial of the late president’s blood is a “craven act,” and they pledged to use “every legal means” to prevent the sale. PFC Auctions, a company based in Britain, announced Sunday that it will sell a vial of the blood obtained from George Washington Hospital in Washington, D.C., after Reagan was shot in 1981. PFC’s website said the latest online bid for the vial stood at £6,270, or $9,910. The seller said he or she had contacted the Reagan Library months ago but had been told that his family would like the vial given to them. The seller said in a statement that “I was a real fan of Reaganomics and felt that President Reagan himself would rather see me sell it rather than donating it.”
