    What a great story. So wonderful to see someone like that man profit from ancestor's purchase! The rug IS unusual and beautiful. I studied Navajo rugs earlier this year when I made my 2 Navajo quilts, and I didn't see a single Chief's rug like it. Similar, but not exactly like it.

    What a wonderful story. Many many years ago, I worked on a ranch in Colorado the summer that I graduated from high school. I spent all of my summer earnings on a Navajo blanket I had fallen in love with.
    It does not have the provenance that this blanket does but it is my prized possession. I loved the story you shared and this man's good fortune!

    I love this story. I teared up as the bids went higher and higher. This man seems like a genuine really nice guy that has has some very bad luck. I wish him the best with his new found wealth and hope he has the wisdom to handle it carefully.
    When a dying man asked his pastor "How long does it take to die?" his pastor's heartfelt reply was "A lifetime." Live life to the fullest, but stop now and then to enjoy the sunset.
