NEW YORK, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- A New York auction house said the "Ten Commandments" tablets from the film of the same name and a piece of Lady Liberty's nose are headed for the block.

Guernsey's Auction House said its Sept. 24 Iconic Objects Auction will include the tablets from the Charlton Heston film, a piece of the Statue of Liberty's nose made but not used during a 1980s restoration and other items, including a falcon statuette made for the Humphrey Bogart film "The Maltese Falcon" and sunglasses once worn by James Dean, the New York Daily News reported Friday.

"Any of these things would be the star of a normal auction," Guernsey's owner Arlan Ettinger said.

The 100 historical and pop culture artifacts up for auction also include blankets from President John F. Kennedy's Dallas limo, a hat Michael Jackson wore on stage in 2002 at New York's Apollo Theater and an IOU for $4,800 written by Frank Sinatra.
