We all associate pirates with parrots and patches over one eye and a Pirate Treasure Hunt is one of the original and best treasure hunts there is.

But a patch with a difference is coming up for auction in Los Angeles in October.

It is the eye patch worn by John Wayne in his Oscar-wining performance in the film True Grit – surely a must-have for any self respecting John Wayne fan. Keep an eye out for it – ho! ho! ho! (not forgetting the bottle of rum!).
