    I find it bizarre that Simmons Hardware ordered ten IDENTICAL Colts like the one sold here. But apparently that's what happened and Bob Dalton bought them all and all but one guy died wearing them. I know they were a huge distributor but ten with no variation seems strange. Here's another article, Primer, about there being ten of these.

    I held that 41 Caliber Reid Knuckle duster. At the price it sold for it must be one of only a handful in that caliber in existance.

    I think I read in the auction book that they believe that one guy ordered the guns on behalf of the Dalton gang.
