Strong prices were attained for a number of quality items across the board and there was a great deal of participation. An analysis of the sale reflects our continued dominance in the market for high-end, rare and expensive items. Over 412 items realized $10,000 or more. Over 175 items realized $20,000 or more. 27 lots generated in excess of $50,000 and 7 items generated over $100,000. The top lot for the day was an outstanding Colt 1875 Gatling Gun which realized $201,000.
This auction included the inauguration of our new Sporting & Collector Firearms Division which will generally handle moderately priced firearms. This sale was a great success and generated nearly $2.3 million dollars. A rare Colt 1911-A1 military model 1938 production was estimated at $3,000-4,000 but soared to 12 times the high estimate at $51,750.
Despite the overall success of the sale, there are always items that remain unsold and there is a wonderful selection of items yet available. These items will be posted online for a brief period of time. If you are interested in making an offer, do so immediately. If you wish to make an offer click here. Any realistic offers will be considered by our sellers. High, competitive offers will result in a response; whether the consignor chooses to accept or not to accept. Low, non-competitive offers will be submitted to consignors but only if a consignor elects to sell, will you be contacted. If a consignor does not accept a low offer, you will not hear from us. Due to time constraints here and the flurry of participation in this short period of time, it is impossible to respond to everyone so we only are able to get back to those who are successful and/or made a very competitive offer.
If you have any questions or require additional information about a specific lot before making an offer, please contact our office. The first offer to be accepted by the consignor will determine the sale. In other words, if two people submit the same exact offer and a second offer comes in two hours later, should the consignor accept the price, it would go to the first party who made the offer so do not hesitate. There are still some wonderful items left to be offered, be sure to check out the list immediately.
Thank you for your continued support and we hope that you find some items on our unsold list that you would also like to add to your collection.
