GUEST: The tomahawk was a gift to our family from a lady in Chadron, Nebraska. Daisy told me that this tomahawk was a gift from Red Cloud.
APPRAISER: A tomahawk with a forged head, file branding and tacked is worth $6,000 to $8,000. And if you could verify the history of it, it would be worth double that.
