Guns that reportedly belonged to Wyatt Earp, one of the most iconic figures of the Old West, are slated to go on the auction block on April 17 at the J. Levine Auction & Appraisal in Scottsdale, Ariz.
The owner of the auction house, Josh Levine, told the Arizona Republic the collection also includes guns owned by Virgil Earp and their grandfather. But the centerpiece is a .45 caliber revolver Earp descendants say he carried in Tombstone, Ariz.; possibly at the infamous shootout at the O.K. Corral.
“This is American history here — and not only is it that, it's Western folklore... This gun, the O.K. Corral shootout, it's lived on where other stories have not stood the test of time,” Levine said.
