DALLAS (AP) — The combat boots and dog tags Alan Alda wore while playing the wisecracking surgeon Hawkeye on the beloved television series “M-A-S-H” have sold at auction for $125,000.

Alda held onto the boots and dog tags for more than 40 years after the show ended but decided to sell them Friday through Heritage Auctions in Dallas to raise money for his center dedicated to helping scientists and doctors communicate better. The buyer’s name wasn’t released. Alda said he wore the boots and dog tags for the 11-season run of the show about a Korean War medical unit.

The show’s final episode, which aired in 1983 and was written and directed by Alda, was the most watched TV show in U.S. history.
