I'll be watching this auction with interest as last month I bought a piece
of the bumper bar of the car Jesse Kelly crashed into the tree on Ebay.

I reckon it should be worth a pretty penny in one or two hundred years when
Jesse Kelly is a folk hero.

It'll probably be cut down before another 200 years.

Sure as shittin' it wasn't Ned's!

His Navy Colt was handed in quite a few years back, by a descendant of
the railway worker who picked it up after Ned was captured at
Glenrowan. Probably been crushed (or at least had the barrel welded
up) by now.

Ben Hall's revolving rifle was auctioned circa 1997. It made around
A$5,000.

I've got a historic axe that came out with the First Fleet if anyone's
interested in buying it - mind you, it's had 17 new handles and 23 new heads
over the years but otherwise it's in it's original condition.....
