Dear Friends I am excited to be opening my 118th Auction closing on Sunday, February 18th, 2024, beginning at 8PM mountain time. This issue features many rare and seldom offered Railroad Police badges from the Kidd Museum collection as well as a few desirable builders plates. The usual fine selection of rare keys and continuing to offer the amazing locks also from the Kidd Museum collection. Some beautiful and rarely seen dining car pieces are also featured. And topping this issue off is a rare and desirable silver filigree Otto Mears pass.

Remember that fully illustrated color catalogs are available for $20 each or $60 for a yearly subscription which insures four issues. Email or call if interested on getting a copy. Remember too that if you do receive printed catalogs, prices realized can be printed directly from your computer.

As we find ourselves in the middle of the winter season, I do hope viewing this auction provides a respite from the long cold days. My next sale will be late spring, and I will be featuring more Otto Mears passes including a Buckskin as well as an 1889 flat and a watch fob to complete the offering.

Wishing everyone all the best for 2024 and good luck bidding.
