Yale University's secret Order of Skull and Bones used the skull and crossbones as a ballot box, Christie's said in its advertisement of the item in an auction catalogue. The auction house estimates the 19th century ballot box is worth between $10,000 and $20,000.

This isn't exactly a shock, but I am a bit surprised that this is being reported on by CNN. The article explains that the human remains had been once used as a ballot box, so what exactly did these ballots consist of? Possibly voting new members in or out of the Order?

This may not be an article worthy of starting a thread over so if this is a waste of time I apologize, but it has sparked my interest a bit. I have to also wonder what will become of the Skull and Bones that were up for auction.
