Madoff's Slippers, Piano Can Be Yours at Auction
Feds to Sell Disgraced Financier's Personal Items in NYC; All Proceeds Will Benefit His Wronged Investors
NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2010

(AP) More than 400 of Bernard Madoff's possessions are heading for the auction block in New York City.

The items include Madoff's black velveteen slippers, embroidered in gold with "BLM," a Steinway piano and his wife Ruth's 10.5-carat diamond ring.

The U.S. Marshals Service will be selling the disgraced financier's personal items on Nov. 13 at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers. They are the last items taken from Madoff's Manhattan and Montauk, Long Island, homes.

The agency seized his property and assets after Madoff's massive Ponzi scheme was exposed. All proceeds will benefit Madoff's wronged investors.

Last year, an auction of hundreds of other Madoff items brought $1 million.
