From 'Rags' to Riches

[caption id="attachment_1105" align="alignnone" width="575" caption="I've been sniped!"]I've been sniped![/caption] Henry Stone's lucky Civil War jacket (see Tuesday's post) fetched the tidy sum of $35,000 when the hammer dropped yesterday at Cowan's Historic Firearms & Militaria Auction.   The house added an additional 15% selling commission bringing  the threadbare, military rag's  final price to $40,250.  The winning bidder was not disclosed and assuredly, at that price, it wasn't me.  I do hope it finds a wonderful home.  It's been through a lot.
