Bonnie & Clyde guns sell for US$504,000 at auction

NASHUA, New Hampshire--Two guns once in the possession of notorious gangsters Bonnie and Clyde when they were killed in a hail of gunfire sold at a New Hampshire auction Sunday for more than half a million dollars.

The guns were two of 134 artifacts that sold for a total of US$1.1 million at the auction in Nashua. About two-thirds of the auctioned items were from Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker.

Bonnie Parker's .38-caliber Detective Special that she had taped to her thigh when she was killed in 1934 drew the highest bid and sold for US$264,000, said Bobby Livingston, vice president of RR Auction in Amherst, New Hampshire, which held the auction.

Clyde Barrow's 1911 Colt .45-caliber automatic sold for US$240,000 to the same bidder, who didn't want to be named, Livingston said.
