The upcoming summer Americana Auction offered by Holabird Americana is a massive celebration of American and Native American culture, with a particular focus on the South and the West. It extends beyond specific categories, rather focusing on the shared culture and history of thousands of available lots. The five-day auction includes categories as varied as mining memorabilia, dolls and toys, numismatics, and jewelry.
Each day of this auction follows a particular theme, grouping items around a particular piece of American history or culture. Native Americana and General America lead the way in the first session, with numismatics, transportation, and dealer specials following. With starting bids ranging from $5 to $5,000, all days of this auction feature items of interest for a wide spectrum of collectors.
Key lots from the auction include a colorful acrylic painting from Jerry Whitehead, a gold bar from the historically significant Parsons & Co., and several bond and stock certificates. While each session has several of these show-stopping pieces, there are also numerous curiosities hidden in the enormous catalog. Antique ore cars, postcard collections, and sheriff badges indicate just a taste of this varied auction. View the complete auction and register to bid online on Holabird Americana.
