Pope Francis skullcap sells for $113,000 on eBay

A skullcap, or zucchetto, belonging to Pope Francis has sold for $113,210 in an eBay sale.

The lot had been acquired by a TV presenter filming outside the Vatican, who had offered the pontiff a new one in exchange.

The presenter sold the item to benefit a humanitarian project in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

In February a Harley-Davidson presented to Pope Francis by local bikers was auctioned for charity, realising $325,904 for a new soup kitchen.
