Friday’s estate sale of Jack Kevorkian’s personal possessions included a variety of items, from his plastic hair comb (didn’t sell) to the initial design prototype for his Thanatron “death machine.”

It had been estimated to sell for $100,000 to $200,000, but the highest bid was $65,000, said the auction firm handling the sale. Little of his small correspondence collection sold, but the only known copy of his “MERCY CLINIC” business card brought in $1,200.

The bullet-proof vest he wore to trials after numerous death threats brought $5,000. His iconic blue cardigan sweater, with careful hand-made repairs, sold for $500. Most of his paintings, each estimated to be worth $70,000 – $100,000, didn’t sell, as the ownership rights to them are disputed by an Armenian museum in the United States.
