Infamous 'Fairy' Photos Sell for Stunning Price

In an update to a story we told you about a few weeks ago, a pair of infamous images that were  at the center of a legendary hoax over a century ago wound up selling  for a whopping amount in a recent auction in England. Known as the  'Cottingley Fairies,' the photos were something of a sensation back in  the late 1910's as they purportedly showed fairies interacting with a  pair of young girls. The veracity of the images were debated for decades  until the two individuals behind the photos admitted that they were  fabricated.

Nonetheless, it seems that the chance to own a dubious piece of  paranormal history proved to be pretty tempting when two of the photos  went up for auction late last week. Originally expected to sell for  around $900 to $1,300 each, the final bids for the photos far exceeded that amount. In fact, one image sold for a  little over $7,000 and its more iconic counterpart, seen above, was  purchased for a jaw-dropping $20,000.
