Harrison Ford's Indiana Jones fedora whips up £271,000 at auction
A fedora worn by Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom has sold at auction for 375,000 dollars (£271,000).
The wisecracking archaeologist’s trademark hat was the top item from the first day of Prop Store’s Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction.
The fedora beat its pre-auction estimates by almost £100,000.
Other highlights from the sale included the Ressikan flute played by Sir Patrick Stewart’s Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation, which sold for 237,500 dollars (£171,000).
