BOSTON (AP) — Jewelry that belonged to Al Capone and Bonnie and Clyde and legal documents pertaining to the infamous gangsters are on the auction block.

The “Gangsters, Outlaws and Lawmen” auction being handled by Boston-based RR Auction includes Capone’s platinum and diamond pocket watch that demonstrates his desire to be perceived not as a criminal but as an elegant gentleman. The rounded triangular watch includes 72 cut diamonds on the front, a platinum face and the initials A.C. on the reverse.
