Catalog cover
Welcome to this my 116th auction, featuring continued offerings from the Craig Neros estate as well as more incredible locks & lanterns from the Kidd Museum.

I still offer printed catalogs in full color for anyone interested in subscribing the cost is $60 per year which ensures 4 issues. The catalogs offer a chance to sit in your easy chair and peruse the lots, choose your lots of interest and then you can go to your computer and see multiple pictures and often more in-depth descriptions.

Remember if you have any questions or maybe need extra photos of a particular item please do not hesitate to reach out.

On a final note, if you are thinking of selling a few pieces or in need of moving your collection on to new caretakers, please keep me in mind. There is no question that to capitalize on the value of collections, Auction is the proven mode of success. How often have you inquired as to the value of pieces and been given several different opinions? The answer is simple: it is worth what two people are willing to pay and the best way to determine that is through auction. I consistently get strong prices, especially for quality items. My mailing list is over 2000 members throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. My next sale is scheduled for the fall, so now is the time to inquire about what I can offer. My fees are negotiable, and I can assist with all aspects of preparation and transport. Should you have questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

With summer fast approaching I know we are all looking forward to some warm weather and a chance to maybe travel to some upcoming shows. The best part of this hobby is being able to be with fellow collectors and share in person our love of this hobby.

I do hope you can find something in this issue that you just canít live without!!

Good luck bidding,
