Spink Shreves Galleries Sale - 134

The Civil War Sesquicentennial Sale - April 12, 2011

Spink is pleased to announce our special auction commemorating the sesquicentennial of the attack on Fort Sumter that began the United States Civil War, plunging the nation into a murderous conflict that would last four years and claim over 600,000 American lives. Collectors of stocks and bonds, obsolete banknotes, autographs, coins, and stamps will each find items in this sale that are rarely available. We are proud that we have been able to offer as nearly complete a set of Confederate war bonds as has been in a single auction in living memory. A full 207 of a possible 227 Criswell varieties are represented, and 265 of 336 Ball varieties. The sale also boasts the largest collection of Interim Depository Receipts for Confederate bonds in a single auction since Dr. Ball’s collection was sold at the 1987 NASCA sale in Richmond. Our autographs and Americana section is especially strong in letters and documents concerning the attack on Fort Sumter, along with numerous letters recounting the terrors of battle and the rigors and boredom of life in the field. Americana, including original artwork, photographs, weapons, and even a Confederate military flag, helps round out this major-event auction. Whatever your collecting interest, we are confident that you will find something in these pages that you must have in your collection!

As with all Spink USA auctions, bidders may participate in the auction – live on the Internet – during the sale. Please see our website for details of this exciting bidding option.
