Yard Sale At Bernie Madoff's

The U.S. Marshals are holding an auction on Saturday to sell more of Bernie Madoff's stuff. Along with the slippers and diamond engagement ring, the Feds revealed more details about the personal jewelery, furniture, and clothing that are on the auction block.

The 400-plus list of items includes this late-19th century brass and crystal French cigar box (cigars not included).
