The McKinley Presidential Library and Museum is hurriedly fundraising in hopes of buying a tiara that once belonged to President William McKinley’s wife.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports the owners of Ida McKinley’s diamond-accented headpiece recently sold it to the Las Vegas pawn shop featured in the History Channel show “Pawn Stars.”

Museum curator Kim Kenney says pawn shop co-owner Rick Harrison has offered to sell the piece to the Canton museum for $43,000, the amount he paid for it.
