Holabird Western Americana Collections
Holabird Western Americana Collections, LLC’s next auction, titled Treasures from the Shelves, will represent a bit of a departure from past events. For starters, it’s only two days (February 18th and 19th), not Holabird’s customary five days. Start times both days will be 8 am Pacific time. Also, it will be an “autopilot auction”, with a ten dollar start price on each lot. The auction will feature over 1,400 lots in many collecting categories, to include mining, bottles, stocks, philatelic, militaria, Native Americana, numismatics and general Americana. More items from important collections that have been featured in past sales, such as those of Gary Bracken, Ken Prag and Stuart MacKenzie, will come up for bid. Dealers will want to mark their calendars. In an “autopilot” auction, folks can start bidding absentee right now, per usual, but only through iCollector.com, Holabird’s preferred auction platform. For help registering or placing bids, they can call 775-851-1859. On auction dates, they will be able to join the live auction console, place bids and watch the lots progress, but there won’t be an audio/video feed or person on a podium. Once a lot opens, there will be a 20-second countdown. If a bid is placed during the countdown, the timer is reset. Each live bid resets the timer. Once the countdown runs out, the lot will be sold and the next lot will come up with the same settings. “It’s up to bidders to keep the action going, but we’ll be watching and cheering you on,” said Holabird’s president and owner Fred Holabird.
