Two guns once in the hands of lovebird desperados Bonnie and Clyde have sold for over half a million dollars. The relics were featured at an auction among 134 sought-after items from luminaries like Al Capone, Pretty Boy Floyd and John Dillinger.

The selection of artifacts sold for a total of $1.1 million at the auction in New Hampshire.

Bonnie Parker’s .38-caliber Detective Special that she had taped to her thigh when she was killed in a hail of gunfire in 1934 drew the highest bid and sold for $264,000.

Clyde Barrow’s 1911 Colt .45-caliber automatic sold for $240,000 to the same bidder who didn’t want to be named, vice president of RR Auction in Amherst, N.H. which held the auction, said.
