Helm's Tribal & Native American Summer Spree

Auction Details

Helm's 2017 Summer Spree catalog contains Native American artifacts such as Navajo weavings and Pueblo pottery, Pre-Columbian artifacts, and other pre-historic items such as arrowheads and other stone tools. We have featured a collection of stone artifacts from Illinois, Ohio and Texas. This catalog also includes Native American and Mexican jewelry from the 20th century.
Buyer's Premium is 22%. There are no returns.

We are not accepting credit cards. For large dollar amount payments, we may need to require a bank or wire transfer. This will be determined on an individual basis and your invoice will reflect these details. We will provide you the transfer information if applicable.
