Historic Arms & Militaria Auction
A World War II leather flight jacket from the U.S. 23rd Bomb Squadron, a worsted wool tunic worn by a brigadier general who was a commanding officer at the legendary Tuskegee Army Advanced Flying School, and a Polish pre-World War II VIS-35 Radom pistol are expected top lots in Bruneau & Co.’s Historic Arms & Militaria auction on September 29th. The online-only auction, beginning promptly at 6 pm Eastern time, is packed with 265 lots of historic objects from World Wars I and II and the modern era. These include flags, uniforms, bayonets and an array of iconic arms of both World Wars for the discerning collector. But not to worry, the catalog promises something for the novice collector as well as the advanced dealer. “A large portion of the auction was built from a single-owner collection of fine long arms, pistols, and revolvers,” said Joel Bohy, the director of Bruneau & Co.’s Arms & Militaria department. Mr. Bohy added, “There will be a selection of bayonets, fighting knives, scopes, and unusual wartime bring-back articles, to include porcelain, glassware, flags and propaganda.” This will be just the fifth online-only Historic Arms & Militaria auction for Bruneau & Co., and in that brief time it has made a major impact in a crowded field. Internet bidding will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, Auctionzip.com, bidLIVE.Bruneauandco.com and the mobile app “Bruneau & Co.” on iTunes or GooglePlay. A preview of all the items will be held by appointment only in the Bruneau & Co. gallery on the date of sale, Thursday, September 29th, from 9 am to 4 pm Eastern time. To schedule an appointment, please call (401) 533-9980 or send an email to email@example.com. The Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers gallery is located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, RI 02910.
