John Dillinger's Double Derringer just Sold at Auction for over $95,000

The antique firearms market must be getting hot. A Remington .41 Caliber Rimfire "Double Derringer" taken from John Herbert Dillinger when arrested in Tucson, Arizona just sold for $95,600 at a Heritage Auction Galleries auction. When he was arrested at the time, Dillinger was quoted as saying, "My God, how did you know I was in town? I'll be the laughing stock of the country! How could a hick-town police force ever suspect us."

This item sold for more than double the estimate of $35,000 to $45,000.
