Bond memorabilia goes under hammer in London
LONDON (AP) — James Bond lovers have spent thousands of pounds for pieces of memorabilia from the spy movies at a London auction.
Christie's auction house is selling the items to coincide with the 50th birthday of the Bond movies. The first Bond film, "Dr. No," was released Oct. 5, 1962.
Among the items under the hammer Friday in London was the complete works of Ian Fleming, Bond's creator. That fetched 91,250 pounds ($147,197), handily beating estimates of between 10,000 and 15,000 pounds.
A navy, wool Tom Ford suit worn by Daniel Craig in the new Skyfall film due out on Oct. 26 sold for 46,850 pounds. It was estimated to sell for between 2,000 and 3,000 pounds.
Proceeds will go to several charities, including the U.N. children's fund, UNICEF.
