AUCTION! Must See! Powder Horns, Rifles, UNBELIEVABLE


Huge Auction of Pennsylvania and Virginia made Kentucky Rifles.
In addition there will be authentic powder horns and memorabilia.

It is an unbelievable opportunity for anyone that has the wherewithal to acquire any of these lots. The asking prices seem reasonable, though there is no telling what the final bids will end up at!

On August 13th through August 15th, the collection of the late Joanne and John Holmanmore will be put on the auction block. More than 220 long rifles will be offered at 10 a.m. next Friday (August 14th) at the second session of the sale at Morphy's gallery (2000 N. Reading Rd., Denver, Pa., If you would like to follow online, and possibly bid, the auction also is being carried online at LiveAuctioneers (

To be honest, I am absolutely besides myself that I can't bid on a single thing. Quite frankly I am pulling my hair over this. These are quintessential pieces of Americana that will pretty much disappear from view again. Truly a once in a lifetime opportunity!

There are a few "modern arms" mixed in Parkers, a German triple, a couple of rimfire cartridge rifles, books, accessories, and other stuff! It starts on page 21 and continues 31 with knives, swords and tomahawks on that last page.

Estimate: $400- $600

If anyone decides to bid and wins, please brag enthusiastically! At least I can experience this vicariously!

Rasch, I'm not sure if I should thank you for posting or damn you for posting. Pure American treasures there. One of those things my kids will say "You mean they only cost .... and you didn't buy any?!"
