The 25-year-old letters came with a price tag of 30,000 dollars.
But Prince Charles' letters are not the only unique thing for sale online. In fact, there's lots of weird stuff for sale. So many, several websites write about it regularly.
This website is entirely devoted to weird and funny ebay finds. How much would you bid on an electronic yodelling pickle, a 2 headed lamb, or a leather body bag?
Earlier this month, someone tried to sell Iceland on Ebay. Yes... he was trying to sell the entire country. And 14 people bid on it - the highest was 70 dollars. The item has dissapeared from Ebay.
Believe it or not, many people are bidding on these weird items. Last month, someone tried to sell a scary-clown-experience. He said he would dress up as a clown and scare you for three days. And people are buying it - the highest bid is 344 dollars.
No wonder some people are trying to profit from this weird-sale-market. This guy claims he's been selling stuff on ebay for over 10 years - and he says the easiest items to sell are haunted items. He wrote a book about how to sell weird items and make big money - and is now selling that book - online.
Well some people are trying to make serious money of these weird sales, but many are just having a laugh.
