Guns of outlaws Bonnie and Clyde to be auctioned?

She kept a Colt .38-caliber revolver close, while he preferred a .45-caliber
pistol from the same maker.

But neither weapon was enough to save American outlaws and
lovers Bonnie Parker
and Clyde Barrow
during a 1934 ambush by law enforcement officers.

After the duo was dead, authorities recovered the revolver
Bonnie had secured to an inner thigh with white medical tape.


They also seized the handgun Clyde had tucked into his
waistband.


Nearly 80 years later, those guns and other items connected
to the infamous gangsters will be going up for auction in New Hampshire on Sept.
30. An auction official estimated Thursday that each Bonnie and Clyde weapon
could bring between $100,000 and $200,000.

    My guess is that the guns will bring more than that.

    Besides the guns, other items Livingston's company will auction include a gold pocket watch Clyde was wearing when he died, and a cosmetics case Bonnie was using to carry lipstick, Coty face powder and a powder puff. The brown leatherette box was inside the Ford automobile the gangsters were riding in when a posse of lawmen riddled it with bullets on a Louisiana road.

    Also in the auction is a letter that Clyde wrote to his brother L.C. Barrow on the back of a photo showing a house on a platform surrounded by water. He signed it "bud," his code name when he was on the run.
