Welcome to our May 2019 Sale!

This sale spans 5 days with 4,000 lots in nearly 20 collecting categories.

HIGHLIGHTS

*KEN PRAG STOCK CERTIFICATE COLLECTION: This sale continues our sale of the Ken Prag American Stock Certificate Collection that we started offering back in 2014. This sale includes more great Western mining and railroad rarities including Alaska, Colorado, Nevada Territory, the Dakotas, Michigan, and Montana; early automobile and aviation; and non-mining or railroad pieces (such as hotels, banks, clubs, etc).

*COLORADO TERRITORY COLLECTION: We have received what we believe to be the finest Colorado Territory stock certificate collection in existence. Over 40 pieces are from the 1860s period! This private collection nicely compliments the Ken Prag Collection and also contains fabulous Colorado railroad rarities. For many of these pieces, we could find no record of them ever being offered at auction!

*ANTIQUE MARBLES: Nearly 200 lots with single rarities and larger groups of turn-of-the-century or before marbles, including figural sulphides, hand-painted clay marbles, colorful swirls, and more!

*NUMISMATICS: US & foreign gold coins & ephemera including a fabulous 19th-century silver coin belt plus two gigantic bullion scales from the Philadelphia Mint.

*TOKENS: Continuing the fabulous offering in our March token auction, this section features US & foreign brothel tokens.

*SPORTS: Three different baseball collections including rare autographs, cards, and other sports ephemera.

*POSTCARDS: Tens of thousands of postcards are featured in this auction from two key collections: the Native American Postcard Collection and the Salvatore Falcone Postcard Collection. Many real photo rarities plus larger groups, c.1906-1960s.

*GENERAL AMERICANA: Rare books, firefighting ephemera, World Fair & expositions, a Hawaii Collection (Ken Prag), rare Nevada ephemera from a prominent collection, and much more!

*WELLS FARGO & POSTAL HISTORY: Rare exchanges and checks, enameled signs, plus a fabulous Nevada Wells Fargo cover collection including great full cover advertising rarities such as Ophir and Star City!

MINING: Ephemera (maps, photos, books) and rare mining stocks from the Ken Prag Collection and the Colorado Territory Collection, plus a Minerals & Ore section that features an old high-grade collection out of the Tonopah area. Also a very rare original Virginia City Assayer's sign.

NATIVE AMERICANA & COWBOY: In addition to the fabulous Native American postcards, this section also has jewelry, baskets, and other collectibles.

BARGAINS & DEALER SPECIALS: Our entire 5th day is dedicated to this category of both large groupings ideal for resale or lower priced entry-level collectibles, spanning nearly ever collecting category in the rest of our sale.
