The 50lbs lead statue was the object of desire of Bogart’s private detective character, the Daily Express reported.
The protagonist believed the statuette to be a priceless, jewel-encrusted solid gold antique in the flick, but in the end it turned out to be a fake.
The auction will take place at Bonhams in NYC on November 25.
