By now, most of the world has heard the news that actor, Sean Connery sadly passed away on October 31, 2020. And while the Scottish film star’s legacy will be remembered by generations for a myriad of iconic roles, Connery is no doubt best known for his portrayal of James Bond in five of the franchise’s installments starting in ’62 with Dr. No.

Fast forward to present times, and one of the most significant props from the entire Bond series is now heading to auction. Marking the first-ever appearance of the international super spy’s famous pistol of choice Bond’s Walther PPK from Dr. No is now slated to cross the auction block at Julien’s Auctions upcoming “Icons & Idols Trilogy” sale in Beverly Hills on December 3. Because the original prop gun didn’t arrive on set in time, the Dr. No production instead used an actual live PPK in the early scenes, before later switching to the hero gun that’s now for sale. Sean Connery’s ‘James Bond’ Walther PPK Hero Gun is expected to bring in somewhere between $150,000 to $200,000. For more information, you can check out the auction house’s website linked below.

Purchase: $150,000+
