Bonhams is putting up for sale items related to the 007 films
as well as photographs, posters and props for film and
television in its June 24 Entertainment Memorabilia Sale.
Among the highlights is Martin's acoustic guitar used in the
recording of the band's hit debut album, "Parachutes", and
estimated to fetch from 7,000 pounds ($11,000) to 9,000 pounds.
"It is the guitar Chris bought and took to university with him
in 1996 so that really is if you like the very beginning of the
Coldplay story," Bonhams' Stephen Maycock said.
"At university the band took shape and the guitar itself was
then used in their recording of the first album."
From the world of film, an SD Studios replica of the gun from
"The Man with the Golden Gun" signed by Bond actor Roger Moore
is on offer, with an estimated price of between 2,500 and 3,500
pounds while an Asprey vanity case purchased for "On Her
Majesty's Secret Service" is also for sale.
"This is an exact replica of Scaramanga's famous golden gun,"
Maycock said, referring to the character played by Christopher
Lee who died this month.
"This was produced as a limited edition in 1994 to commemorate
the 20th anniversary of the release of the film. It's signed by
Roger Moore on the butt which is a cigarette case," he said.
Bonhams said an original poster for the first Bond film "Dr. No"
was estimated at between 4,000 pounds and 6,000 pounds.
