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.Â Â The house added an additional 15% selling commission bringingÂ the threadbare, military rag'sÂ final price to $40,250.Â The winning bidder was not disclosed and assuredly, at that price, it wasn't me.Â I do hope it finds a wonderful home.Â It's been through a lot.
