Harrison Ford's 'Indiana Jones' Fedora Fetches $375,000 at Auction
The hat worn in 'Temple of Doom' was expected to sell for $150,000
Published Jun 30, 2021The fedora worn by Harrison Ford in 1984's Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom has just sold at auction for well over $300,000 USD.
The item in question was prepared for sale by the Prop Store, which also controlled the auction of Ford's Raiders of the Lost Ark fedora that sold for more than $500,000 USD in 2015, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
According to an auction description, the costume hat was created by Herbert Johnson Hat Company, who also did the hats for Raiders of the Lost Ark.
"The fedora was a slight update on the original film's version," the description reads. "Costume designer Anthony Powell and assistant costume designer Joanna Johnston worked closely with Herbert Johnson on the update that incorporated a more tapered crown than the prior film."
The fedora was expected to fetch between $150,000 and $250,000 USD, but the unidentified winner ended up nabbing the goods for $300,000 with a $75,000 buyer's premium — making the total price tag $375,000 USD.
