The sale at Bonhams in Manhattan also features rare print-outs of the original series of hourly Dow Jones news bulletins reporting the fighting on France's north coast on June 6, 1944. The American flag that flew aboard the U.S-built LST 493 and the Dow Jones documents, both owned by World War II collector Rodney Hilton Brown, have pre-sale estimates of $12,000 to $18,000.

The auction also includes battlefield souvenirs, innovative wartime technology, rare documents and photographs from the war's European and Pacific theaters.
