Discovery Channel "Auction Kings" Kit, 2010



On October 26, 2010, the Discovery Channel premiered the series Auction Kings, following the objects at Gallery 63 in Atlanta, GA. The first episode featured a vampire killing kit, dated to the late 1800s, which sold at auction for $12,000. This was a classic non-Blomberg kit with no label visible, and it is clear from the price that the buyer believed it to be a genuine vintage kit.

The kit, offered by a weapons collector with pickers in New Orleans, includes stakes, a knive with silver mountings and silver blade, a silver crucifix, bible with rosary, wooden crossbow with silver-tipped bolts, and several vials including holy water and other compounds.
