Famous Wild West lawman's revolver did not find a new owner at an auction in San Francisco. Looks like the Silicon Valley elite was not interested.
The Smith & Wesson No. 2 revolver that Wild Bill Hickok was carrying when he was shot down failed to auction in San Francisco. According to Reuters the reserve was not met. The seller was estimated to get between $300,000 and $500,000 for it apparently. The reserve is private, but the maximum bid was $220,000 and that was too low. San Francisco is full with Silicon Valley millionaires and billionaires, but apparently a historic pistol is not their fancy.
