RENO, Nev. - Feb. 12, 2023 - PRLog -- Holabird Western Americana Collections, LLC's next auction, titled Treasures from the Shelves, will represent a bit of a departure from past events. For starters, it's only two days (February 18th and 19th), not Holabird's customary five days. Start times both days will be 8 am Pacific time. Also, it will be an "autopilot auction", with a ten dollar start price on each lot.

The auction will feature over 1,400 lots in many collecting categories, to include mining, bottles, stocks, philatelic, militaria, Native Americana, numismatics and general Americana. More items from important collections that have been featured in past sales, such as those of Gary Bracken, Ken Prag and Stuart MacKenzie, will come up for bid. Dealers will want to mark their calendars.

Day 1 – on Saturday, February 18th – will contain 757 lots in the categories minerals and mining, general Americana and bottles. Three lots are expected to vie for top lot honors. One is a high-grade, long slab of gold ore from the Hishikari Gold Mine, near the southern tip of Japan, 6 inches by 2 inches and weighing 249 grams and having dark wavy features (est. $1,500-$4,000).

The other two are a variety of ledgers, notebooks and documents of historical, geological and metallurgical noteworthiness from the Nevada Consolidated Copper Corp. and the Kennecott Copper Corp. in McGill, Nevada (est. $2,250-$5,000); and an archive of material pertaining to Harold R. Moss, a mining engineer and metallurgist who lived and worked in Montana in the early 20th century (est. $3,000-$5,000).

A map of the Leadville (Colorado) mining district from 1901, compiled from official records and other reliable sources by Chas. F. Saunders, scale 1,200 feet to the inch, printed by Denver Litho. Co., has a pre-sale estimate of $1,000-$2,000. Also, a panorama photo image of Cripple Creek, Colorado, probably taken around 1908 or possibly later, 12 ¾ inches by 6 ½ inche, in good condition, should bring $400-$800.

An EG Stiles Colorado mining archive – about 60 items, including the mines of Cripple Creek and elsewhere, three mineral patents and various property reports, circa 1893-1905 – is expected to change hands for $500-$1,000. Also, a two-page 1875 letter from attorneys to the claimants of the Wayne Mining Co., on behalf of the owners of the Maria Ledge of the Victoria Gold & Silver Mining Co., regarding profits extracted on their mining property, should earn $400-$800.
