2019 WESTS Token Auction

Auction Details

Greetings!

The Santa Rosa WESTS show and Auction are sure to be fun for all. The Western States Token Society has been ongoing for decades since the 1970’s, started by longtime collectors Duane Feisel and Ron Lerch. I first met this duo in Tonopah at a bottle and token show in about 1973.

This sale has some wonderful collections:

The Roger Merritt Worldwide Brothel Collection. The American part of this sale is here at WESTS, the international part coming in May. This is the finest collection of its kind ever assembled.

Salvatore Falcone California Token Collection, highlighted by many rare saloon tokens

An old-time Colorado Collection with incredible rarities

Be sure and get your bids in early, and join us for the auction!
