Doc Holliday's Watch
Four years ago, a pawn store clerk in Tulsa, Oklahoma, met a customer claiming to be a descendant of John Henry "Doc" Holliday.
The customer's pawned antique watch had an interesting inscription on the back.
In the world of Western antiques, forgeries are certainly common.
But, could this watch have been a gift from the fearless frontier lawman Wyatt Earp to the dentist, gambler and gunman Doc Holliday?
Was it was given in gratitude for Doc's help fighting the Clanton gang at the OK Corral?
History Detectives saddles up and travels to Arizona and New York to uncover the surprising facts behind this legendary gunfight, and the real relationship between Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday.
