    DALLAS A wooden gun that John Dillinger's relatives said was hand-carved by the one-time "Public Enemy No. 1" has sold for $19,120 at auction.

    The artifact was one of the items put up for bid at an Arms & Militaria auction at Heritage Auctions in Dallas.

    Heritage arms and miltaria director Dennis Lowe said the notorious Depression-era bank robber used the item to bluff his way out of a Crown Point, Ind., jail on March 3, 1934.

    A $14,340 winning bid was made for a dollar bill said to have been in Dillinger's pocket when he was gunned down in ambush by FBI agents outside a Chicago theater in June 1934.

    Eleven Dillinger-related items consigned by Dillinger's younger sister, Frances Helen Dillinger, were auctioned Saturday. Bids for five items failed to meet her pre-auction minimum price
