Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 11:25 am

A U.S. auction house is trying to sell one of Saddam Hussein’s military uniforms online, calling it an “ultimate artefact” of the U.S. war in Iraq.

Manion’s International Auction House is offering the olive green dress uniform, complete with Saddam’s special rank on its shoulder straps, at a starting price of $5,000, but expects it to sell for much more.

“We have only seen one other Hussein uniform here at Manion’s, and it realized over $20,000 at auction,” the auctioneer says on its Web site.

The company says the uniform was obtained by a soldier in the U.S. army’s Third Infantry Division after American troops seized Baghdad airport in April 2003.
