Hitler's champagne fetches £1,400

From the BBC, August 2007
A bottle of champagne believed to have been taken from Hitler's wine cellar by an allied soldier has been sold at auction in Dorset for £1,400.
The bottle of 1937 Moet and Chandon went under the hammer at Charterhouse auctioneers in Sherborne and was bought by a Swedish television company.

The bottle was given to solicitor Nigel Wilson by a soldier as a thank you gift for some legal work 15 years ago.
