The pistol used by Harrison Ford in Raiders of the Lost Ark sold for $75,000 (£46,000). The six-shot revolver is an original film-modified Smith & Wesson Hand Ejector Mk II and was used through the majority of filming in Tunisia.

The New York Bonhams auction on November 25 sold some props from well-known films.

Included were one of the lead birds from the 1941 film "The Maltese Falcon",
a car from "Casablanca", and Indiana Jones' braided leather bullwhip from
"Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" which was sold for $8,000.

Old Bonhams auctions had some nice documents, of interest if only for pricing.

Raiders scripts:

Man, if only it was tax season right now and I didn't have bigger fish to fry, maybe one of those scripts could realistically be mine. That's one advantage (and simultaneous disadvantage) to being momentarily single. You get to have crazy lapses in judgement and spend top dollar on essentially useless pieces of paper.

Although, had Raiders not yet been made, those scripts could accurately be deemed PRICELESS!

Too bad much of those auction items are for just paper collectibles, albeit "sacred" paper! LOL!

However, I'd be lying if I said that S&W Mk II didn't get my pulse racing a bit. That is definitely one of the greatest key Indy props IMO!

There are better ways to spend that kinda money, including benevolent charities, which I would hope some of these auction proceeds could possibly go to, but one can dream of getting the opportunity to Hahaha!

Although I would rather have Young Indy's house in Utah that was sold a few years back.

Here's a heretofore unknown 4th draft of Radiers, which sold with other goodies this month. The fifth draft soon followed. Notice even at the big auction houses you can't trust the page number claims, they're almost certainly looking at the last scene number.

Great Wired article, though not Indy related.

In the world of vintage collectables, there’s always a marquee brand that demands insane prices. In the sci-fi prop world, that brand is Star Wars. The prices for production artifacts with a Lucasfilm provenance make a mockery of presale estimates.
