On eBay: chestnut from Anne Frank’s tree

When Anne Frank was hiding in Amsterdam, she often gazed at a chestnut tree outside her attic hiding place, about which she then recorded in her famous diary.

The chestnut tree has been condemned, as its trunk is so diseased it could topple over. But before the tree is cut down this Wednesday, one entrepreneur was able to snatch a relic and attempt to make a profit on it. Charles Kuijpers, who lives next door to the tree’s garden, has put one chestnut from the tree up for sale on eBay.

Bids at the time of writing were at $700. How much would you pay?
