DAKOTA CITY, Iowa, March 6 (UPI) -- An Iowa woman who found a McDonald's McNugget she believes resembles former President George Washington said the item fetched an $8,100 bid on eBay.

Rebekah Speight of Dakota City said she found the McNugget in an uneaten portion of her children's food about three years ago and kept it frozen until she decided to auction it to help her church, the Sioux City Family Worship Center, send 50 children to summer camp, the Sioux City Journal reported Tuesday.

Speight said the winning bidder offered $8,100 for the McNugget, but she hasn't heard word from the bidder since the auction ended.

"Once we receive payment, we'll ship it," Speight said.
