This includes sanitizing all hard surfaces, handrails and door handles. Hand sanitizer and wet wipes will be available.

William L. Rosenbaum served as an FBI special agent in Milwaukee, Indianapolis and Boston in a career that began on November 16, 1970 and lasted until 1995. Along the way, he indulged his passion for the items in this auction that will be passed along to a new generation of collectors.
As an FBI agent, it made sense that Bill Rosenbaum would collect G-Man items. Like the large group of FBI "Wanted" poster copies, including ones for John Dillinger, Clyde Barrow, Bonnie Parker and Osama Bin Laden, being offered as one lot (est. $100-$200); and the framed signed photo of FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, plus four Hoover and FBI-related items (est. $100-$200).
