A Kimber 1911 That Rose From the Ashes of the World Trade Center by Logan Metesh | Sep 11, 2016 | 14 comments facebook twitter linkedin email comments Geoff PR says: September 11, 2016 at 15:35 Watching a documentary on 9/11 a few years back, they went to one of the facilities that was hand-screening every cubic yard of the debris. They showed a basket of misc. items that had been sorted out. What was surprising to me was the pocket change they had found. Nearly every coin was bent, crushed, or mutilated in some way. Gave you a bit of perspective on what happened to the people who had those coins in their pockets and purses… Reply Paco says: September 11, 2016 at 16:36 It’s amazing what survived the wreckage. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=V-QycTzwV7c Reply Me says: September 11, 2016 at 16:52 ? Reply Geoff PR says: September 11, 2016 at 19:49 The passport wasn’t in the tower when it progressively collapsed. It was on the terrorist in the cockpit and was blown *through* the building and was found *blocks* away from the collapse… Reply Vhyrus says: September 12, 2016 at 00:49 Oh well, then… that’s MUCH more logical. Reply Paco says: September 12, 2016 at 01:07 You type that with a straight face? Reply Joe says: September 12, 2016 at 15:20 Whom is your comment directed at? MiamiC70 says: September 11, 2016 at 18:02 So, basically this is a plain old Kimber 1911 that happened to be stored below TWC. Explain why it’s notable or more valuable than a new Kimber 1911? Reply Impending Doom says: September 11, 2016 at 18:46 Explain to me why a Garand carried on Omaha Beach is more valuable than one that sat in an Italian warehouse for seventy years. Reply Adam says: September 11, 2016 at 19:13 OH snap. Reply MiamiC70 says: September 11, 2016 at 22:19 Trick question. Answer is it’s not. Reply Geoff PR says: September 12, 2016 at 00:04 It depends. Was it carried by your grandfather during Operation Overlord? If so, I’d value it rather high as an heirloom. I got into a conversation with the owner of the first pawn shop I worked at in the mid-80’s. He kept telling me something was worth (X) dollars. I told him, when it came down to it, something is only ‘worth’ what someone is willing to pay for it… M2AP says: September 13, 2016 at 07:29 Provenance Reply Wade says: September 11, 2016 at 23:42 So that is what it takes to make one of those pieces sh!t work.
