What would be the value of one of the 5 jackets (has bullet holes) used in the terminator 1 film?

What auction house is considered the best to list something like this?

I met the owner in San Francisco this weekend. Former costumer. Has had it for 29 years. She texted me this morning and said the contract she signed with the auction house does not allow a back out/withdrawl. Min reserve set at $40,000. Magazine should come out first week of August. Said she does not have a certificate. Has pics of the jacket she said she will send me. If she does maybe can analyze against screen caps of film. Arnold hero jacket worn in 2 or 3 scenes.

Will see what happens with receiving the pictures, but yeah I was quite excited. She asked for help in tracking down the manufacturer as she has no idea since the lining is missing. If I get the pics I may try to track down the wardrobe/costumer for T1, etc.

Geez Platon - I figured Bill Kelso had plenty on their plate ???

Ok. So the magazine is up. The jacket is listed on Page 266 in the current Profiles in history catalog online. July 28/29 with sound of music photo on cover. I noticed it said 12,000 - 15,000. I contacted the owner and she said they wanted her to change the reserve to 8,000. She was very upset because they had previously agreed to 40,000. I wonder if this is something common they do to sellers once they get an item in hand and everything. Curious anyway. She also mentioned it was supposed to go up on Monday for bidding.

She also said she would send photos over to me last night to post up, but as of this morning I still don't have them.

Oh, and you guys should flip through that catalog. There's all kinds of cool stuff up for auction. Star Trek. Indiana Jones. In fact one of the items says the fedora worn by HF in Last Crusade and another says the 8' whip HF used in all three of the first movies.

Hell Gunslinger. They even claim they have original items Steve McQueen wore in like bullit.

I can't as I'm busy with appointments today. I can later today when I get home. Meanwhile google profiles in history. Find their website. They have the online PDF catalog on their site.

Here's the photos she sent over. I wish I had time to really do some screengrab compares before the auction, but these should help anyone who is really interested in getting a closer look at the jacket. If you guys know anyone who is an aficionado of Terminator or likes to bid on screenused movie jackets feel free to direct them here to get some fairly good closeup shots of the jacket. Pretty cool one showing the inside too.
