From the largest firearms museum in the North American continent comes an auction of unprecedented proportions. The J. M. Davis Arms & Historical Museum in Claremore, Oklahoma has collaborated with Holabird Americana in the upcoming Antique Firearms Auction to offer over 2,500 firearms and accessories that have never seen live before. Since 1965, the majority of the available lots have been in private storage, making this sale a historic debut of richly storied arms. The auction is divided into three sessions:
- July 26: FFL required firearms that mostly date from the early 20th century to the 1960s. Key lots include a beautifully engraved G. Leute drilling rifle and a rare Sharps model 78 rifle.
- July 27: Non-FFL required firearms from the 19th century and before. The standout lot is a J. Stevens & Co. long rifle that Buffalo Bill presented to the Buckskin Brothers, both of whom have joined the Wild West icon in the ranks of American lore.
- July 28: Artifacts, ephemera, and miscellaneous items. Other weapons such as crossbows and swords are presented alongside ribbon collections and floral longhorn center mounts.
