The U.S. Marshal’s Service next month will auction off more than 400 pieces of personal property from Bernie and Ruth Madoff, via both a live and online process. Among the available items:
- A diamond engagement ring (10.54 carats!)
- A Steinway & Sons grand piano (don’t worry, bench is included)
- One pair of velveteen slippers, embroidered with “BLM”
The U.S. Marshals have not yet made the entire inventory publicly available, nor have they suggested asking prices (keep checking back here). A media preview takes place on November 10, while a public preview is two days later.
All proceeds will go to compensate the victims of Madoff’s massive fraud…
