Rare Bond poster sells for £6,700
A rare James Bond movie poster has fetched one of the highest prices ever for such an item at an auction in Lichfield.
A telephone bidder won the 1964 Goldfinger 'Style B' poster by Robert Brownjohn for £6,700.
Rob French, customer relations manager at Richard Winterton Auctioneers, where the auction was being held, said:
"We knew we had got something special from the amount of interest from the internet and telephone calls requesting more information and condition of the poster, but the final amount achieved was quite amazing and rocketed past the estimate".
Another poster for Sean Connery’s previous Bond film, 1963's From Russia with Love, reached the lower end of the estimate of £1,000.
