DALLAS, TEXAS- A grizzly bear claw necklace and a Colt .45 six-shooter once owned by "Buffalo Bill" Cody sold at auction for more than $40,000 a piece.

Heritage auctions of Dallas sold the two items during its "Legends of the West Signature Auction", which featured about 400 collectibles.

They included guns, photos, badges and books.

The auction house says Sioux Chief Sitting Bull gave the grizzly claw necklace to Cody.

The six-shooter was bought in 1883 by Cody from firearms dealer Hartley & Graham of New York City.

It was an 1873 Frontier Six-Shooter revolver.
