Bernie Madoff auction - A variety of ill-gotten goods can be yours this weekend as the U.S. Marshals Service in New York will auction off personal property belonging to Bernard and Ruth Madoff.
Bernie Madoff is serving a 150-year prison sentence for a decades-long Ponzi scheme in which he bilked investors of billions of dollars.
The items for Saturday's auction were seized from his homes in New York City and Montauk, on Long Island.
Big-ticket items include a 10.5-carat diamond engagement ring, estimated to fetch as much as $350,000, and a Steinway and Sons grand piano that could bring in $16,000.
