Some auction houses choose to take the summer off, but not Holabird Western Americana, Collections, LLC. Fresh off a High-Grade Auction held June 15th-18th, the firm will host a three-day “Time Flies in July” auction, July 28th, 29th & 30th, a special timed event that will feature nearly 2,200 lots of Western Americana, numismatic, philatelic and dealer items.

Start times all three days will be 8 am Pacific time. The timed auction will be hosted exclusively on (Holabird’s preferred online bidding platform) and will contain collectibles in over ten categories, including postcards and stamps, mining, art, general Americana, books, bottles, stocks, numismatics, railroad, tokens, Native Americana and more – a collector’s dream.

Every lot will have a start price of just ten dollars. “But starting at ten dollars doesn’t mean the items are cheap, common or unwanted,” said Fred Holabird, the owner of Holabird Western Americana Collections, LLC, based in Reno. “What it does is let the bidder and the collector set the prices. If the lots start cheap, then all it takes is your bid to jump in and get what you want.”

Holabird Western Americana Collections, LLC is always seeking new and major collections to bring to market. It prides itself as being a major source for selling Americana at the best prices obtainable, having sold more than any other similar company in the past decade alone. The firm will have its entire sales database online soon, at no cost – nearly 200,000 lots sold since 2014.

To consign a single piece or a collection, you may call Fred Holabird at 775-851-1859 or 844-492-2766; or, you can send an e-mail to [email protected].
