Robert Mayo of Mayo Auction & Realty in Kansas City said the anonymous buyer bid $130,000 for the Tommy gun and $80,000 for the 1897 12-gauge Winchester shotgun said to have belonged to the 1930s gangster couple, the Kansas City (Mo.) Star reported Monday.
Mayo said the guns were believed to have been left behind when the bank robbing duo of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow had a shootout with police at their Joplin, Mo., hideout.
"This is a piece of history," Mayo said of the guns.
