New Hampshire Auction Features Items Owned By Bonnie and Clyde, Al Capone

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — Guns and other items from notorious criminals Clyde Barrow Bonnie Parker, Al Capone and others are up for bid at a New Hampshire auction this weekend.

Visitors can view the 130 items Saturday and bid for them Sunday at the Crowne Plaza in Nashua.

The event by RR Auction in Amherst features guns retrieved post-mortem from Barrow and Parker and a signed deposition from Capone. There’s also a John Dillinger death mask and a vintage press ID card signed by Prohibition investigator Eliot Ness from the 1930s, after Ness left Chicago for Cleveland to serve as director of Public Safety.

Some of the items are expected to fetch more than $100,000.
