A pair of guns allegedly used by notorious Depression-era gangsters Bonnie and Clyde were auctioned off last week for a cool $210,000.
From this story on CBSnews.com:
A Tommy Gun and shotgun reportedly owned by the Depression Era bank robbers Bonnie & Clyde were sold at auction today for a total of $210,000. The .45 caliber Thompson Sub-Machine Gun was believed to have been used by Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker.
The seller’s great-grandfather, who was in law enforcement, was given the gun after the weapon was seized in a raid in Joplin, Mo., in April 1933. Though no arrests resulted from the raid, a cache of weapons and a camera – containing photos of the outlaws – was confiscated. The Tommy Gum sold for $130,000. Also sold today was a Winchester 12-gauge shotgun, acquired in the same raid, for $80,000.
