Bond mania continues as 007 posters, books and golden guns sell for £123,000 at Ewbank's
Top price was the premium-inclusive £20,000 for what is seen as the Holy Grail of James Bond Collecting: a limited edition Official Attaché Case Replica from the second 007 film From Russia With Love.



LONDON.- Ewbank’s have taken a bumper £123,000 in the latest of their specialist James Bond 007 auctions, well above hopes.

Top price was the premium-inclusive £20,000 for what is seen as the Holy Grail of James Bond Collecting: a limited edition Official Attaché Case Replica from the second 007 film From Russia With Love.

Released by S.D. Studios and numbered No. 008 of 100, it contains two hidden daggers with working ejection mechanism, magnetic talcum powder container, concealed gold Sovereigns (10 on each strap), rounds of ammunition (plastic replica and deactivated) concealed in hidden brass tubes, a replica of a bug detector in its leather case issued by TV Models, original SD Studios folder containing mission paperwork and operating instructions, and an AR-7 Replica BB Rifle.

The designers took all the measurements from the original film prop used by Sean Connery to create this official collectable.

The February 11 James Bond 007 auction also took £18,125 for the finest example specialist Alastair McCrea has ever seen of the extremely rare four-design Advance British Quad poster for Thunderball from 1965.

An original poster for the first film in the franchise, Dr No, took £16,875, while a limited edition replica golden gun signed by both Roger Moore and Christopher Lee sold for £7,500.

In all, the top ten lots made a combined total of more than £83,000, with 95% of all lots changing hands at the sale.

“This remains one of the most popular fields of collecting around,” said McCrea. “We have been holding dedicated auctions for Bond props, costumes, collectables and posters for a long time now and the appetite among bidders is as strong as ever.”
