Julien’s Auctions has been responsible for the sale of everything from Kurt Cobain’s sweater and Eddie Van Halen’s guitars, to Hugh Hefner’s collection of jackets and pipes and Evel Knievel’s Triumph motorcycle. Next year, they’re set to auction off one of the most interesting collections yet with “The Cold War Relics Featuring the KGB Espionage Museum Collection”. As the name implies, the centerpiece of the sale is the entire collection from the KGB Espionage Museum in NYC that includes the largest collection of KGB-specific spy equipment and authentic KGB artifacts from the Cold War. What’s in the over 400 lots on offer? A gun designed to look like a tube of lipstick. A secret hotel-room listening device. A rare Soviet version of the Enigma code cipher. A replica of the deadly syringe umbrella. A purse with a hidden camera and shutter apparatus. German WWII phone tap device. Steel door from a former KGB prison hospital. The list goes on, and on, and on. If you’re a fan of vintage, war, spy or Cold War ephemera, there’s something for you in this auction. Julien’s Auctions “The Cold War Relics Featuring the KGB Espionage Museum Collection” kicks off on February 13th, 2021.
