Start times both days will be 8 am Pacific time. The timed auction will be hosted exclusively on iCollector.com (Holabird's preferred online bidding platform) and will contain collectibles in over ten categories, including mining, bottles, numismatics and philatelic (coins and stamps), sports, stocks, art and general Americana. In all, more than 1,300 lots will come up for bid.
"This sale is a mix of old and new material, with many lower priced and entry-level lots, plus larger groups ideal for dealers, as well as some rarities that have been previously run," said Fred Holabird, the president and owner of Holabird Western Americana Collections, LLC, based in Reno. "And, to celebrate the St. Patrick's Day weekend, every lot will open at just ten dollars."
Mr. Holabird added, "Starting at ten dollars doesn't mean the collectibles are cheap, common or unwanted. What it does represent is a following of the worldwide numismatic market and of letting the bidder and the collector set the prices. If the lots start cheap, then all it takes is your bid. We have so many thousands of collectors, we hope they all will find things to their liking."
Day 1, on Saturday, March 18th, will feature over 670 lots of general Americana (to include geographic sort and miscellaneous categories such as transportation, books, toys); and bottles.
Day 2, on Sunday, March 19th, will be packed with more than 600 lots in categories that include art, sports, philatelic, mining, stocks and numismatics.
This is a timed auction, so there will be no live auctioneer or audio/video feed. Folks can bid now, up to the day each session closes. On the 18th and 19th, they will be able to log in to a virtual console and bid live, per normal. Each lot will open with an automatic timer that's reset with each live bid. Once the bidding stops and the timer runs out, the next lot is presented.
