DALLAS (AP) - A former grizzly bear claw necklace and a Colt .45 six-shooter once owned by ex-scout and showman "Buffalo Bill" Cody sold at auction over the weekend in Dallas for almost $50,000 each.
Heritage Auctions said both sold Saturday for $49,625.
The Dallas-based auction house sold the two pieces during its "Legends of the West Signature Auction," which featured nearly 400 lots of collectibles including guns, photos, badges and books.
Heritage spokesman Tom Slater has said the grizzly bear claw necklace was a gift to Cody from Sioux warrior chief Sitting Bull.
Slater said Cody bought the 1873 Colt model 1873 Frontier Six-Shooter Revolver from the New York City firearms dealer Hartley & Graham in January 1883.
