9 Che Guevara's Hands

His hands were amputated by a military doctor after his execution, and were preserved in formaldehyde to be sent to Buenos Aires for fingerprint identification. After that, it is not clear what became of them, although some accounts indicate they were sent to Cuba, a 2006 documentary "The hands of Che Guevara" is a search for the severed and probably missing hands.
There's a second Che Guevara's body part which went famous: After his death, a Cuban-born CIA operative snipped a lock of Che’s hair. He held on to it for 40 years, finally putting it up for auction in 2007, where it set an auction record for the highest price paid for a lock of hair: about $100,000. - Lotuscandy
