Abraham Lincoln was the most popular presidential waxwork sold in the auction of the Gettysburg Hall of Presidents and First Ladies Museum’s assets.

Abraham Lincoln Gettysburg

Abraham Lincoln is popular on both sides of the political divide 

The museum closed last year, and has since made its selection of waxworks (of variable quality) available to collectors.

Lincoln realised a top price of $8,500.

Auction house expert Randy Dickensheets told local newspaper the York Dispatch: "It was expected. Lincoln is popular among Democrats and Republicans."

Meanwhile, outgoing president Barack Obama pulled in a respectable $2,200.
