Amelia Earhart’s Goggles Sell For $17,775
I’ve been fascinated by Amelia Earhart for years. Researching several stories and books about her life and last flight have left me with more questions than answers. Somebody bought several pieces of history.
Goggles worn by Amelia Earhart and photographs of the famed aviator pulled in more than $31,000 at an auction in Oakland, California.
A spokesman for Clars Auction Gallery says the winning bid for the set of 1920s Luxor aviator goggles with a cracked left lens was $17,775.
The goggles previously were owned by Barbara Englehardt, a Contra Costa County resident who got them from a friend about 20 years ago.
