(Newser) – You can buy some weird stuff at auctions, but this is arguably the weirdest: a pair of underwear that allegedly belonged to Queen Elizabeth II. "Baron" Joseph de Bicske Dobronyi, a Miami playboy, somehow came into possession of the decidedly unsexy panties more than 40 years ago after the Queen reportedly left them on a private plane during a 1968 visit to Chile. Now that he’s dead, his estate will auction them off. They are expected to go for around $9,000. TMZ has pictures.
