Navajo Chief's Blanket sets record at John Moran Auctioneers.
This is a great story about a mans life turned around for the worse because of a car accident were he had to have his leg amputated leaving him on
disability benefit of just $800 a month struggling to survive, and after watching a antiques roadshow were a old man sells a old navajo blanket for a
large sum of money, and realized he had one of these blankets that was handed down through his family, and gets excited thinking it maybe worth up to
$10,000 or close, and takes it for a authenticity check and evaluation, and then to auction, and whats happens at auction just blows him away and it
sets a world record.
It's a real feel good story, and couldn't of happen to a better person who never had nothing in his life, and when he though life couldn't get any
worse, something amazing happens out of nowere.
I was pleasantly surprised that the blanket came into this guy's family through legitimate means and wasn't some kind of spoil of war. It's truly
remarkable that the specimen equals the one in the Smithsonian. Just sitting there with a million dollar + blanket, wondering how you're gonna pay
your bills. I think they might owe PBS a little donation.
