The hat was among several celebrity items, including Elvis Presley’s belt, that were sold to bidders in an interactive auction held Saturday in New York by Los Angeles-based Julien’s Auctions.
The hat was from the estate of Harold Sakata, who played the villain in the 1964 Bond movie. The buyer, Anthony Pugliese III, is a collector of Bond memorabilia in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He wants to display the hat in a pop culture museum being developed in Florida, the auction house said in a statement.
A belt that Presley wore during his 1972 performance in Honolulu went for $66,000, more than six times the auction estimate.
The belt was from the estate of “Hawaii Five-O” TV star Jack Lord. It was sold to Neville Tuli, an art auction house owner in Mumbai, India.
Other items sold included interview tapes of John Lennon for $60,000 and the red evening gown worn by Dustin Hoffman in the 1982 movie “Tootsie,” which went for $26,400.
A total of 269 items sold for $655,000, which included a 20 percent auction commission.
