Real 1800s Vampire Killing Kit Hits the Block, Nets a Small Fortune

This vampire killing kit, which hopefully was not used, was built in the 1800s and features all that one would need to do battle with preternatural forces of evil. It has a Bible, holy water, a cross, silver bullets, agun, candles, knives, garlic and last but not least, the all important wooden stakes. I am guessing that the garlic was replaced, but the rest of the stuff looks suitably old. It sold for $15,000. [Antiques and hearts via io9, GearFuse]
