“Indiana Jones” Hat Worn by Harrison Ford Sells for Record-Breaking $521,000

Quite possibly the most famous hat in cinematic history, the fedora hat worn by Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in #RaidersOfTheLostArk sold for a record breaking £393,600 ($521,362) during a Prop Store auction in London on September 20, 2018.

The hat was originally designed by costume designer Deborah Nadoolman and made by the Herbert Johnson Hat Company. It was then treated with dust and bleach to give it a slightly battered, weathered and well-travelled appearance.

Because of its unique markings, it could be screen-matched with many of the film’s most famous moments.
