The Rock Island Auction (RIA) Company displayed a knife owned by the former president of the United States Theodore Roosevelt at its auction house in Rock Island, Illinois, on Thursday.
Interactive Production Manager Joel Kolander stated that this was "the first time in 107 years it has been out of the family." He also explained that the knife was a gift, presented to the president in "his first several weeks out-of-office, maybe even the first day out of office, by his good friend Supreme Court Justice of New York James Gerard."
The knife has been passed down within the family in the past 107 years and was finally acquired by the RIA after sitting down with the former president's great-great-granddaughter’s family. The knife is expected to be sold at between. $150,000 (€133,000) to $300,000 (€266,00).
