For Sale: Bonnie & Clyde Guns and Artifacts

By July 28, 2012

Follow me on:

The RR Auction House in Amherst, New Hampshire has a selection of artifacts from notorious outlaws Bonnie and Clyde for sale. Bonnie and Clyde made headlines during the Great Depression when they went on a two-year crime spree that included robbery and murder. When they were finally caught, they were mowed down by a hail of bullets in their Ford V-8 on May 23, 1934. </p

Some of the items found in their "death car" are now up for auction. This includes a Colt Model 1911 gun that was found tucked into Clyde's waistband, a Colt Detective Special .38 revolver that was taped to Bonnie's thigh, Bonnie's cosmetic case, and a blood-stained silk stocking.

Bidding for the guns is expected to reach around $100,000 each. Potential bidders can register and bid online at RR Auction; the auction will end on September 30, 2012.
