The most expensive pistol in the world is actually a pair of steel-mounted saddle pistols owned by Sir George Washington himself. They are marked by Jacob Walster, were owned by President George Washington during America’s war of independence. The pistols were auctioned for a total of 2 million dollars.
If we had 2 million dollars, we would probably not buy old useless guns.
Thankfully they weren’t purchased by a silly individual, but they were purchased at the auction by the Richard King Mellon Foundation and are currently on display at Fort Ligonier in Pennsylvania.
