The head was listed to sell for between £5,000 and £10,000
A waxwork head of Sir Paul McCartney which was found by a homeless man after it was left on a train has sold for £5,500 at auction.
Anthony Silva claimed a £2,000 reward after finding the head in a bin at Reading station. He said he had been using the model as a pillow.
The auction organiser Joby Carter left the head under a train seat at Maidenhead station on 16 October.
It was bought by an American bidder at auction in Maidenhead on Sunday.
The wax model was listed to sell for between £5,000 and £10,000.
Mr Carter told BBC News Online: "The sale went well and I was happy with the final price.
"To be honest I'm glad to see the back of it."
Mr Silva had thought the waxwork was a Halloween mask.
The head was made in the 1960s and displayed at the Louis Tussauds museum in Great Yarmouth.
Carter's Entertainment auctioneers sold the item, along with fairground memorabilia.
