Clyde's Watch.

Bonnie and Clyde's Death Guns, Clyde's Watch

Field review by the editors.

Waco, Texas

The sky-high prices attached to Bonnie and Clyde artifacts -- especially those found in the couple's Death Car -- make the Texas Ranger Museum cautious about making any claims about its impressive collection of Bonnie and Clyde booty. The Clyde pocket watch, for example: was it the one taken from his bullet-riddled body, or some other watch that was lost or confiscated during his many run-ins with the law? The Museum is satisfied that it did belong to Clyde, and leaves it at that.

Bonnie and Clyde's Death Guns.

As for the many guns in its display: two were reportedly taken from the Death Car, and two -- including a machine gun -- were used by the berserk posse that filled the car (and Bonnie and Clyde) with bullet holes.
