Alongside a $22k vintage Fender Stratocaster guitar, a number of other weird, wonderful and valuable collectibles sold at Cordier Antiques & Auctions' recent Two Day Fall Antiques & Fine Art Auction.
Saturday's session featured a number of Civil war documents and soldiers' letters.
Among these was a Civil War record signed by Joshua Chamberlain - the American college professor who, despite having no training, volunteered for the Union Army and became a highly-decorated officer.
Chamberlain would later become the 32nd Governor of the US State of Maine.
Won by a local Pennsylvania collector, the Civil War record realised $2,250.
Also in Cordier's sale, a collection of Patriotic stationery and soldiers' letters brought $700. And a grouping of Civil War naval paymaster records left the auction block at $400.
