There is a maritime auction tomorrow (11 June 2014) at Bearnes in Exeter, with many fascinating items for sale, including (147) a letter by Nelson (estimate of £5,000 to £7,000); (174) hair of Napoleon; and 179 and 180 a cabinet and table made from HMS Foudroyant. The catalogue can be downloaded here: http://www.bhandl.co.uk/sales/.

As far as I can see, the Nelson letter was not sold (either because it was withdrawn or didn't reach its reserve). Number 174 was £240, 179 was £16,000 and 180 £600.
