Washington: Daniel Craig’s blue swimming trunks, that he wore in the James Bond movie ‘Casino Royale,’ has been sold for 71,742 dollars at a charity auction on Friday.

The swimwear was sold by Christie’s and was among a number of Bond items to be auctioned off for charity to mark the 50th anniversary of the famous franchise.

“All I’m going to tell you is they’re unwashed,” Radar Online quoted Dame Judi Dench, who plays M in the Bond films, as saying.

An Aston Martin DB5 driven by the 44-year-old actor in the film ‘Quantum Of Solace’ was sold for 389,377 dollars and a suit that he wears in upcoming Bond film ‘Skyfall’ fetched 75,615 dollars despite only expecting to fetch around 5,000 dollars.

Proceeds form the auction went to a number of charities and the money from the navy and powder blue shorts went to Women for Women organization.
