An Oklahoma liquidator’s auction of seven Navy ship anchors invoked nostalgia for some, but other bidders just wanted a big ol’ anchor.
All of the steel anchors, most weighing 35,000 pounds, sold — fetching $1,340 to $3,500 each. Three will remain in the state, to become yard art or decor at a marina. One is traveling to Florida for the centerpiece of an outdoor garden. Two will be seaworthy again with a new home in Massachusetts. None is headed to the scrap yard.
