One of Charlie Chaplin's bowler hats and a cane were auctioned for $62,500 on Sunday, said auction house Bonhams.

Chaplin's hat and cane, which fetched more than the initial estimate of $40,000-60,000, are synonymous with his "Little Tramp" character in films such as "City Lights" and "Modern Times."

Other items include a handwritten letter from John Lennon in which the Beatle sketched himself and wife Yoko Ono nude.
