Dan Morphy's February 26-27 auction was a feast for buyers of unique collectibles, featuring a varied range of antique ornaments, toys, art and militaria.
As we previously reported, the show was stolen by a quintessential vintage Japanese robot, sold for $52,900.
Among the military items were a collection of historic firearms; most notably a Kentucky rifle attributed to Charles Baum of Pennsylvania, boasting 65 silver inlays.
With distinctive silver depictions of an Indian with a tomahawk and a flying eagle adorning its butt stock, the rifle carried an estimate of $7,500-12,000.
The rifle's decorated surface clearly proved irresistible to buyers at Morphy's Pennsylvania auction. It shot slightly past its estimate hitting a final hammer price of $12,070.
It sold alongside an assortment of World War I and II M1 Girand rifles, a dozen early Springfield Civil War rifles known as '1903s' and more than 60 historic double-barrel shotguns.
