An incredible treasure trove of Al Capone heirlooms have sold at auction for a whopping £2.3m. ($3.1m)<br />
<br />
The star lot was the notorious American gangster's favourite gun - a 1911 Colt semi-automatic pistol, which was expected to fetch £110,000 but sold for an incredible £764,000. ($1.04m)<br />
<br />
The remarkable collection, sold by his granddaughters, included personalised jewellery, photographs and furniture and a letter written to his only child Sonny from Alcatraz Prison, which showed a tender side to the ruthless crime boss.
