Nose Meant for Statue of Liberty up for Auction

These days you can put anything up for sale and you are most likely to find several buyers interested in it. It is even easier to sell things in New York City. Guernsey’s auction house has put together an interesting assortment of items to be auctioned on September 24 at the Park Avenue Armory. The most unusual and interesting item in the lot is a copper chunk of nose crafted to fit the Statue of Liberty’s face during her 1980’s restoration.

The piece is unique in the sense that this two foot long section was one of four created to replace the nose of the Statue of Liberty. And this is the only one that is likely to be ever sold as out of the other three, one currently adorns the statue, one was destroyed and the third one is in a private collection.

There are other interesting items being auctioned that day. There is a motorcycle that was part of President John F Kennedy’s Dallas motorcade, James Dean’s sunglasses, the last home run ball from the original Yankee Stadium. And if you are interested in the celebrities of the movie world you can have the first test record of Barbra Streisand and the photo negative from the nude calendar shoot of Marilyn Monroe.
