Telephone and absentee bids will also be accepted. For details on how to bid, please visit www.fhwac.com. “With 4,000 lots in a wide array of categories, bidders will have plenty of material to look over,” said Fred Holabird of Holabird Western Americana Collections. “Don’t forget the search box for the ‘Virtual Catalog’ on our website. It helps folks find things they want in a hurry. But there’s nothing like surfing through the catalog to find all sorts of neat items they hadn’t thought about.” Holabird Western Americana is always seeking quality Americana and coin consignments, bottles, advertising and other fine collections for future auctions.
