Pike's Peak or Bust! Auction: Western Americana, Bottles, Numismatics, & More (January 2023)

Auction Details

Welcome to the Pike’s Peak or Bust! Auction, our first live auction of 2023 and coming off the world-record-breaking SS Central America Part I auction in December 2022.

This four-day auction has collectibles in over a dozen categories including Bottles, Railroadiana, Native Americana, Mining, Numismatics, Art, Stocks, Militaria, and General Americana. With a healthy dose of exciting Colorado and Western States material, we decided to name this auction in honor of the great Colorado Gold Rush of 1859!

Featured Collections & Highlights

We continue to offer great rarities from the collection of Ponca City lawyer Gary Bracken. This sale includes Native Americana (arrowheads); tokens (Colorado, Missouri, and Oklahoma); Colorado medicine bottles, whiskey jugs, and stoneware; Colorado, Indian Territory, and Oklahoma billhead collections, and more.

*Numismatics feat. Nevada Banknotes*
Our Day 4 is all numismatics, starting with thirteen different Nevada banknotes, including the $20 Nixon National Bank signed by George Nixon. The section also has US coins (incl. Carson City Morgans); medals incl. a U.S. Grant Silver Peace Medal; and a large offering of tokens (Colorado, Missouri, and Oklahoma).
