Christie's auction house has just sold a part of Wall Sreet's history: The "Wall and Broad" street sign from the early part of the 20th century was auctioned for $116,500.
That was above the pre-sale estimate of $60-80,000 and includes the auction house's commision. The buyer was not immediately known. It was previously on display at the Museum of American Finance. The museum has offered to let the new owner continue to display it there.
