We are pleased to announce our September 2020 Sale #34.

Our June sale was again a huge success, with a hammer of just under $1Million plus many new buyers and consignors. This sale is a little more subdued, but still contains many interesting items, with our usual wide range of material for every collector or dealer, with something for every budget. The sale will again be conducted without a public floor, which has been proven (as in our last sale) not to be a deterrent to successful sales.
