Buffalo Bill's Necklace, Gun Sold at Auction

Photos from Heritage Auctions show the Colt .45 six-shooter and grizzly bear claw necklace once owned by "Buffalo Bill" Cody.

A necklace made from the claws of a grizzly bear and a Colt .45 six-shooter once owned by ex-scout and showman "Buffalo Bill" Cody sold at auction in Dallas for more than $40,000 each.

Heritage Auctions says both sold Saturday for the same sale price: $40,625.

The Dallas-based auction house sold the two pieces during its "Legends of the West Signature Auction," which featured nearly 400 collectible items including guns, photos, badges and books.

Heritage spokesman Tom Slater says Sioux warrior chief Sitting Bull gave Cody the grizzly bear-claw necklace.

Slater says Cody bought the 1873 Frontier Six-Shooter Revolver from the New York City firearms dealer Hartley & Graham in January 1883.
