I made a mistake in last week’s column. There are four upcoming estate and collectible auctions; however, I gave you the wrong date on one.
On May 31 we will sell the 1976 Thunderbird, which only has 56,000 miles. Also more than 50 autographed baseballs plus a 250 teapot collection and a selection of coins will be available.
On June 14 we have an outstanding antique furniture collection (formerly from the Nellie Ehlert antique shop). Then on June 21 we will be selling more than 2,000 comics, hundreds of concert T-shirts plus several other collections along with autograph signatures from famous people.
On June 28 we will have the third auction from the Wiersema estate of Fulton, Illinois.
Recent sales prices in our area include a 1973 Honda motorcycle for $2,400 and a 1968 Triumph motorcycle driving off with a $4,000 bid. A Parker Bros. 12-gauge shotgun fired a $1,800 bid.
A Nazi Mauser Luger 9 mm with holster topped out at $2,000. A Charles Daly 410 gauge OU Skeet shotgun crossed the auction block for $2,100.
A nice Browning 22 cal. rifle sold for $800 and a Browning A5 3 inch Magnum found a final bid at $700. A grape and cable designed Carnival glass hatpin holder sold for $100 recently.
Detailed listings with more than 100 pictures of all of our auctions can be found on Auctionzip.com #18204, zip code 52732.
See you next Saturday at the auction at the National Guard Armory.
