McDonald's George Washington McNugget sold for $8,000 on eBay

An American woman has sold a three-year-old McDonald's Chicken McNugget that looks like President George Washington for 8,100 US dollars on eBay.

The Sioux City Journal in Iowa said bidding ended just after 11.30am local time yesterday.

Rebekah Speight of Dakota City, Nebraska sold the McNugget to raise money for a drive to raise 15,000 US dollars and send 50 children to summer church camp in Sioux City.

Ms Speight said her children did not eat the chicken during a McDonald's visit three years ago. She was about to throw it away, then spotted Washington's resemblance. Ms Speight stashed the McNugget in her freezer.

eBay had temporarily taken down the auction last month because it violated rules regulating expired food.

She later received an email saying the site was "willing to make exceptions to help your cause".
