"This auction marks the best material we've offered in a hot August sale in many years," said Fred Holabird of Holabird Western Americana Collections. "The variety is outstanding, as is the quality of goods offered. There is truly something for everybody. And sellers take note – we
average about 5,000 registered bidders per sale, probably the most in America for an Americana sale. With buyers all over the globe, we get to everybody. We are always after great collections."
Native American offerings in The Great Americana Pow-Wow Auction will include turquoise and silver jewelry, baskets, Kachinas, and rugs. Also up for bid will be a fine California token collection, American and foreign counters and tokens from the Benjamin Fauver collection, rare whiskey bottles, a beautiful drugstore carved wood frontispiece and scarce Nevada documents.
The catalog also features a major pinback collection, baseball and boxing collectibles, gold specimens (including some from the Goodshaw Mine at Bodie, Calif.), American and foreign medals, Victorian furniture, a fantastic array of Western art, original Buffalo Bill/Pawnee Bill posters, large ore cars and incline cars from a Nevada City mine, and dynamite and candle boxes.
The list continues with an American souvenir plate collection (from around 1900 to 1920), music collectibles, toys and toy trains, postcard collections, directories, maps, a railroad pass collection and references, antique firearms, badges, mining and railroad stocks, United States coins, token dies, a rock-shop section, mining artifacts and more.
