Arthur Daley makes one final profit
The widow of actor George Cole who famously played Arthur Daley in Minder has sold his iconic camel hair coat and trilby hat today in Newbury.
Merchandise from the famous character was put for auction at Special Auction Services.
Despite an initial expectation that the hat and coat would fetch just over £1,000, they went for much more.
Arthur himself would have been impressed with a final total of more than £11,000.
Ahead of the auction his widow, Penelope, said: "The hat and coat have been kept in a wardrobe for several years and it is now time for them to go to a good home and to someone who will enjoy them.”
