Some Expensive Old Heaters

A matched pair of engraved Remington Model 1858 revolvers, with ivory grips, that were given to Ulysses S. Grant were sold at auction.

The strikedown price was $4.4 million; throw in the 20% auctioneer's premium, that brings it to over $5 million.

A relative bargain was an engraved Colt 1851 Navy, supposedly once owned by Wild Bill Hickock, was knocked down for a paltry $525,000.
