Elon Musk’s previously unreleased photos will be auctioned in the US. They are from his old college girlfriend.

He and Jennifer Gwynne were dating in 1994 and 1995 when he was a student at the University of Pennsylvania.

The photo collection is being sold by RR Auction, bidding ends Thursday.

It may have been almost three decades since they dated, but Elon Musk’s girlfriend at the time thought it was the right time to sell her photos taken during that time. Musk’s relationship with Jennifer Gwynne began in late 1994. They met in the dorms at the University of Pennsylvania, according to Boston’s RR Auction.

You can take a look inside the collection here, which also includes an “I love you” card from Musk to Gwynne. Someone has already bid over 6800 euros for the letter – by far the highest bid to date. The auction ends on September 15.

Musk gave Gwynne a gold necklace with a small green emerald in 1994, which she still wears.

Musk had bought the necklace for her as a Christmas present. But later he said it was an early birthday present because he hadn’t given her anything.

Gwynne once told the newspaper “Independence”that Musk “had no emotions or feelings.” When he gave her the necklace, “it meant a lot because it opened her up.”
