Outlaw buffs rejoice as a piece one of history’s greatest fugitive couples will be auctioned off. Two guns belonging to the duo will be on the market as of this September.
Over the years the tale of Bonnie and Clyde’s 1932 crime spree has gained quite the following. Whether it is because of the Oscar winning movie titled Bonnie and Clyde or the multiple songs about them, the criminal twosome’s story has captivated audiences for almost 80 years. Soon, fans will be able to bid for part of one of history’s most infamous couples. In September, RR Auction in Amherst, New Hampshire will be auctioning off a Colt .38 revolver, a Colt .45 pistol, and several other pieces of memorabilia belonging to Bonnie and Clyde.
Auction official Bobby Livingston told CNN that each gun is expected to sell for over 100,000 dollars each. "This is one of the finest Bonnie and Clyde collections you will ever see," said Livingston, vice president of RR Auction. "We expect the guns should sell anywhere between $100,000 and $200,000. But really the sky is the limit for these types of guns." The other items belonging to Bonnie and Clyde being put on the auction block include a gold pocket watch that Clyde had on him when he died, a lipstick case, powder and a powder puff all belonging to Bonnie, a brown leather bag found in their truck, and a handwritten letter from Clyde to his brother on the back of a photograph.
