While not definitive proof that vampires exist, whoever built this vampire slaying kit took them very seriously. The kit was first owned by Lord Hailey, born in 1872 and the administrator of British India from 1924 to 1928. Inside the unadorned, velvet-lined wooden box is everything one would need to ward off and/or kill the undead: Several crucifixes, a bottle for holy water, mirror, hammer and stake, Bible, rosary beads, and candle sticks. When the kit went to auction, the estimated $2,300-$3,500 price ballooned into a bidding war, with the hammer price coming in at $20,000. Whether for historical or practical purpose, this is one of the most interesting pieces of antiquity to appear in quite some time.
