Philatelic & Dealer Auction
Holabird Western Americana Collections, LLC will greet the New Year with a special, online-only, two-day Philatelic & Dealer Auction on January 7th and 8th, beginning at 8 am Pacific time both days. The sale will be hosted exclusively on iCollector.com (Holabird’s preferred online bidding platform) and will feature old and new items from important collections. Over 1,500 lots will come up for bid across the two days with categories that include Civil War, Indian Territory, Kansas and Missouri covers from the Gary Bracken collection, California and Oregon postcards from the Ken Prag collection, general Americana, stocks, philatelic (stamps), books, mining, sports and more, with most lots having even their high estimates lower than $500. “Welcome, collectors, to a new year of exciting auctions,” said Fred Holabird, the president and owner of Holabird Western Americana Collections, LLC, based in Reno, Nevada. “Our 2023 resolution is to continue to bring fantastic history at auction to collectors, dealers and institutions from around the world. We hope everyone has resolved to keep building their collections and/or inventories.” Mr. Holabird added, “This is an ‘auto-pilot’ auction, so there won't be a live auctioneer or audio/video feed. But folks will be able to log into an auction console, place live bids and watch the progression of the auction. And, to get the bidding going, we’ve lowered opening prices on every lot in the catalog, which has material that’s perfect for collectors and Americana dealers.” To learn more, visit www.holabirdamericana.com.
