Original gun used in first James Bond film goes under the hammer

November 25, 2020 at 16:55 GMT +00:00 · Published

The original gun used in the first James Bond film in 1962 by the late Sean Connery, will be sold during an auction at Julien's Auction house in Beverly Hills, California, on December 3. The Walther PPK is expected to go for an estimated $150,000 to $200,000 (€126,000 to €168,000).

"Sadly, Sean Connery passed away recently, we are all very sad about that, but we have his movies, we have the memories, we have the props. This is a Walther PP. So it's a police pistol. It's actually a real gun that was used in the movie. It has been deactivated now," said Martin Nolan, Executive Director of Julien's Auction.

According to Nolan, the iconic weapon used in the very first Bond film helped Connery in defining his character, and make sure that the franchise could continue in the future with more Bond movies by EON productions.

Julien's Auction house offers others exclusive and iconic pieces for auction, including Kobe Bryant's and Michael Jordan's jerseys, Michael Jackson's director chair, and a white guitar owned by Jimi Hendrix, to name a few.
