NEW YORK (AP) — Lady Liberty has been jilted at an auction of iconic items in New York City.

A copper cast of the tip of the Statue of Liberty's nose that was up for sale on Friday went unsold. The nose, which was expected to fetch between $150,000 and $200,000, was one of four made during a restoration effort in the 1980s.

Among the items that did sell was the falcon statuette in the 1941 film-noir classic "The Maltese Falcon." A spokeswoman for Guernsey's auction house says it was sold for $325,000 to a group of buyers that included actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

Two prop tablets from the movie "The Ten Commandments" carried by actor Charlton Heston during his portrayal of Moses sold for $18,000. The buyer's identity wasn't immediately known.

All prices included a 22 percent buyer's premium.
