Some of you may be wondering what happened to Screen Used General Lee #13 that was slated for auction on December 15th. We noticed that all information regarding it mysteriously disappeared from the catalog and auction site and we never heard anything about a final sales price. Well, we got in touch with the good folks at Profiles In History. They let us know that it was pulled from the auction when information arose that cast doubt on its authenticity. It’s a shame that the car couldn’t be definitively authenticated as a screen used General Lee, but we applaud the Profiles In History crew for their integrity.
The December 15th auction wasn’t without a little bit of Dukes of Hazzard memorabilia, however. A Hazzard County Jail sign, complete with mispelling of Sheriff Rosco’s name, fetched $1500. Score one for the Hazzard County Sheriff’s Department.
