Lord Lucan’s top hat among stars of upcoming sale

Lord Lucan’s top hat, cane and champagne bucket will be sold at Holloway’s Auctioneers in Banbury, UK.

Lucan, a British aristocrat who sensationally disappeared after the murder of his children's nanny in 1974, is still very much in the public consciousness (although he was officially declared dead in 2016). 

A couple of years ago a number of signed cheques for debts Lucan racked up while gambling sold for a combined £4,040 ($5,572).

There’s no estimate on the items offered in this upcoming February 13 sale, but they’re likely to each sell for a sum in the high four figures.
