The "Captain America" flag patch is just one piece of Easy Rider memorabilia that Peter Fonda is auctioning off next month through Heritage Auction Galleries. Also on the block are Fonda's Department of Defense badge that decorated the jacket, a prototype gold Rolex he wore in the film (but not the one he tosses away), a gold record of the soundtrack, and other personal items unrelated to the film. The estimate on the flag is $50k, the D.O.D. badge, $15, and the Rolex, $10k. Fonda's sharp Ray-Ban Olympian shades don't appear to be for sale at this time. Penned by Fonda, Dennis Hopper, and Terry Southern, produced by Fonda, and directed by Hopper, the 1969 road movie is a classic of the counterculture, and American culture in general.
