Tab Clearing...

  • "Her Smiths are Tiffany-twisted..." Bitter shows pics of a couple of gorgeous antique top-break Tiffany Smith & Wessons from the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I think that every time I see a picture of a Tiffany wheelgun, I'm forevermore going to think of this story from Phil Schreier. Can you imagine dropping $80,000 on something (and in great big 1982 dollars, not the bitty ones we use today) and then finding out it was fake? "Ill" does not begin to describe it; they'd be talking me off a ledge.
