007 Pistol Outsells Darth Vader Costume
Recently at a Christie’s London auction, James Bond’s Walther pistol was sold for ￡277, 250 (Y 36,104,542).
Sean Connery held the air pistol in 1963 in a photo shoot to promote the Bond film “From Russia With Love”.
Before the auction the pistol was priced at about ￡20,000.
Not long before the 007 pistol sale, Darth Vader’s costume, worn in the “Star Wars” films, couldn’t find a buyer.
It was expected to sell between ￡160,000 and ￡230,000.
