Buffalo Bill's necklace, gun up for Dallas auction

DALLAS (AP) — A former grizzly bear claw necklace and a Colt .45 six-shooter once owned by ex-scout and showman "Buffalo Bill" Cody will be auctioned this weekend in Dallas.

A statement from Heritage Auctions says the Dallas-based auction house will sell the two pieces during its "Legends of the West Signature Auction" Saturday in Dallas. Nearly 400 photographs, law badges and railroad memorabilia will also go under the auctioneer's hammer.

Heritage spokesman Tom Slater says the grizzly bear claw necklace was a gift to Cody from Sioux warrior chief Sitting Bull. It's expected to sell for more than $12,000.

Slater says Cody bought the 1873 Colt model 1873 Frontier Six-Shooter Revolver from the New York City firearms dealer Hartley & Graham in January 1883. He expects the bids to top $30,000.
