Sir Michael Caine's iconic trench coat from Get Carter is going under the hammer.
The black mac from the gangster film - which co-starred Britt Ekland - is expected to fetch £4,500 at auction.
The double-breasted coat is being offered up for sale by stuntman Johnny Morris who played Caine's double in the 1971 British classic.
Stephanie Connell, from auction house Bonhams, told The Sub: "This is one of two coats that were used in the film.
"It comes with a letter of authenticity from stuntman Johnny Morris who said it was used in fight sequences and both he and Michael Caine wore it.
"The film is a British classic and is Michael Caine's stand-out performance.
"The image of him in the coat with the collar pulled up and carrying a shotgun is iconic. It is a sharp look."
The film, directed by Mike Hodges and starring Caine as hardman Jack Carter, was ranked 16th in the BFI Top 100 British films of the 20th century.
