Indiana Jones’ trademark bullwhip from The Raiders of The Lost Ark is up for auction just in time for the 30th anniversary of the movie.

British-based firm Bonhams is running the auction and expects the whip to sell for somewhere in the neighbourhood of $50,000 to $70,000.

Bonham tells Business Insider that they have received several inquiries about the auction, and that they’re looking forward to a strong response.

Kit West, the special effects director for the movie who gave the whip up for auction, told The Guardian that there were six bullwhips used during filming, and that this is the only one that still remains intact.

The American Film Institute ranked Indiana as the second greatest film hero of all time, and the movie raked in over $384 million at the box office, according to IMDB.

The auction is on June 26 in Los Angeles, and the film’s 30th birthday is this Sunday, June 12.
