As I looked at that beautiful set of dueling pistols, it reminded me
of my favorite episode of Antique Roadshow.
A young man brought in a pair of dueling pistols left to him through
his father from a great great grandfather. The expert went on the
explain they weremade by a British family owned company which
specialized in dueling pistols. During there 40 years they produced
some limited number which I don’t remember, but they were famous for
their dueling pistols at that time. He went on to explain that they
numbered every set the made sequentially with the number on the
grips butt plate. He then held up the pistols to show the young man
the numbers 1 and 2 on the butt plate. He thought they were the
first dueling pistol set made and that they would bring between $1.5
and $2 million at auction.
I wonder what my Daisy would bring?
