Great Americana Pow-Wow Auction (August 2020)

Auction Details

We sincerely hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

This auction marks the best material we've offered in a hot August sale in many years. The variety is outstanding, as is the quality of goods offered.

A glimpse at the many categories: Native American turquoise and silver jewelry, including the best squash blossom necklace we've ever seen, baskets, Kachinas, and rugs; California token collection; Fauver American and foreign counters and tokens; rare whiskey bottles; Masonic California token; beautiful drugstore carved wood frontispiece; Nevada rare documents; major pinback collection; baseball and boxing collectibles; gold specimens including some from the Goodshaw Mine at Bodie; American and foreign medals; Victorian furniture; fantastic array of western Art; original Buffalo Bill/Pawnee Bill posters; Large ore cars and incline cars from a major Nevada City mine; Dynamite and candle boxes; American souvenir plate collection (c1900-1920); music collectibles; toys and toy trains; postcard collections, directories, maps; railroad pass collection and references; antique firearms; badges; mining & railroad stocks; US coins; token dies; a rockshop section, mining artifacts and much more.

There is truly something for everybody!

Don't forget us when its time to sell. We average about 5000 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! ~Fred Holabird~
