On the season 9 of reality series Pawn Stars, a signed photo from the famous World War II pilot Paul Tibbet was up for sale.

A man named Jeff wanted to sell a photo of Enola Gay and the crew members which has a signature of Tibbet. He said he bought it from a state auction and wanted to get $1500 for it.

The Enola Gay was named after Tibbets’ mother, Enola Gay Tibbets. It’s a B-29 heavy bomber that was used by the United States on August 6, 1945, to drop an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan.

Pawn Stars’ Corey and Chum took the photos to the expert Rebecca for her to check and find out what it’s actual worth. Rebecca then said that it could be worth tens of thousands because Paul Tibbet is considered as the best pilot in the air force, but looking at the signature, she said Tibbet signed it at his old age dropping the amount to $600.

In the end, Jeff the owner decided to keep the photos.
