Holabird-Kagin Americana’s Best Auction on Record:
Setting New World Sales Records!
(All sales figures include the buyer’s premium)
Holabird-Kagin Americana was humbled and astounded by the exceptional sales prices for the great collections that hit the auction block this weekend at the April 12-13 auction held at the Atlantis Casino Resort in Reno, Nevada.
The outstanding Jack Totheroh Collection of about 200 California Fractional Gold Coins was estimated to sell for $360,000 given comparable sales records. However, Holabird-Kagin Americana realized almost 2.5 times above the estimate, selling the entire coin collection for $865,358! Similarly, the Bergen-Istvan collection, which contained 19 finest known and 13 second finest known coins, was estimated at $161,850 but sold for 1.5 times above the low estimate, for $251,861!
And the great news doesn’t stop there. The Hart’s Coins of The Golden West set was estimated at $38,650 but sold for over 2 times above the estimate, an outstanding $79,841 for the set, all finest known examples.
Even outside of the realm of coins and numismatics, our $2.4 million sale broke records in Native American Panamint Baskets, which garnered attention from bidders across the globe. With a low estimate of $58,100, you can imagine our enthusiasm when the collection sold for $106,014-that’s over 1.75 times above the estimate!
Even in the fields of western mining collectibles, ingots, paper goods, and railroadiana, we set records in prices realized, bidder participation, attendance, and more.
