CHICAGO, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- A Chicago auctioneer said items at an upcoming sale include a cast of outlaw John Dillinger's face made after his death.

Leslie Hindman Auctioneers said the "death mask," which was created by an amateur criminologist after the gangster's death, will be auctioned Nov. 18 alongside Al Capone's monogrammed scarf, The Chicago Sun-Times reported Tuesday.

The auction house said other pieces of Chicago memorabilia in the auction include rare maps of the city from before the great fire of 1871, a 28-ounce beer schooner from Hinky Dink's Saloon and a first-edition copy of Daniel Burnham's "Plan of Chicago."
