Welcome to the 421st Public Auction
With the summer starting to wind down we can start thinking about stamps again. The August auction is a great presentation of 683 United States and Worldwide singles and sets with better areas like Australia, Canada, France and Colonies, Germany and Areas, Greece, Italy and Areas, New Zealand, and Switzerland. The collection section includes over 700 lots with nice sections of United States, Topicals, Canada, China, France and Areas, Germany and Areas, British Colonies, and a large section of Worldwide. We have been exploring the possibility of expanding our market reach to include other types of collectibles while concentrating on stamps and related areas. We started with coins a number of years ago. In the this auction you will find over 125 lots of model railroad trains and related areas, a collection of over 1,100 arrowheads and other worked stone points, autographs, engraved prints, an antique weapon, and a beautiful Zeppelin pocket watch.
