Moti Sander, a partner at Pasarel, said that his company specializes in Judaica and jewelry, and that he had received Dayan’s eye patch from the minister’s personal bodyguard, who said that he had gotten it, together with a Smith & Wesson 38 revolver, minutes after the famed warrior died in 1981.
Though Dayan’s pistol appears on the eBay site, this is not for sale as the Web site forbids the trading of any arms. It is, however, for sale through Pasarel.
I don’t see why they’re bothering. Why not open a museum with Dayan memorabilia, and charge people $30 each for a photo of them wearing the eyepatch. With 2 million tourists visiting Israel per year, you have to think that you could make far more than $75,000 by year 2 if just 1% take up this offer.
And why stop there? For another $30, you could have people buy a photo of themselves in his old dirty underwear.
