JESSE JAMES COLLECTABLE . . . Is it a pistol? Is it a walking stick? Or, is it something else? Our friend Wendell Osborne visited the famous 127 Yard Sale – The World’s Longest Yard Sale (look it up). For a song, Wendell walked away with this one-of-a-kind Jesse James collectable. At first, the item looks to be a cane with a pistol grip handle. You have to look closely, though, to see if it’s not a pistol with a very long barrel. But the item’s owner will have to show you what it really is. Pull the pistol grip away from the cane shaft, and the item reveals itself for what it is. The weapon is a dirk! See MoreSee Less
