WALTHER LP53 1.77 AIR PISTOL IN CASE
A Walther LP53 .177 air pistol ID 065139 manufactured 1964 probably April or May in lined case with original Walther pamphlet, overall in very good original condition, the iconic James Bond pistol
Although it did not appear in any movie, photographs of Sean Connery as James Bond with a Walther LP53 air pistol provided one of the most iconic images of Bond in the 1960s. In 1963 Sean Connery attended a photoshoot with photographer David Hurn to produce images for poster art and advertising material for the forthcoming movie From Russia With Love. The plan was for Connery to be photographed with the PPK, but when he turned up, no-one had remembered to bring the prop pistol! Fortunately, Hurn was a keen air pistol shooter and owned a Walther LP 53 air pistol. This was used for photography with the intention that the long barrel of the LP53 would later be airbrushed out so that it would resemble the PPK. However, the image of Connery holding the long-barreled LP53 close to his face proved such a strong image that it was retained for advertising material and posters not just for From Russia With Love, but also Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965) and You Only Live Twice (1967).
