The record, in this case, belongs to a pair of silicon pistols sold at Christie's auction. The pistols made in 1775 by Jacob Walster in Saarbrucken belonged to George Washington, who received them as a token of appreciation from Marquis de Lafayette. In 2002, the Richard Mellon Foundation paid almost two million dollars for them at Christie's auction.
