Prehistoric & Historic Artifacts

The Old Barn Auction is proud to introduce Part II auction from the former collection of Gilbert W. Dilley of Akron, Ohio. As former President of the Ohio Historical Society, founding member of the Ohio Archaeological Society, and extremely close and personal friends with both Shetrone and Mills, Mr. Dilley was able to acquire exceedingly rare and authentic Ohio prehistoric artifacts. Lots offered will satisfy the beginner to the most advanced and experienced collectors. Many of the lots being offered have NEVER been offered for sale and are, for the first time, coming openly to market. Furthermore, numerous lots are pictured in an assortment of Moorehead's books, Townsend's Birdstone Book, Knoblock's Bannerstone book, Who's Who #1, and a plethora of other old publications and sources. Numerous original "never seen before" private photographs will be on display of many of the pieces, dating from 1935 through 1962. This is an exceedngly rare opportunity to purchase material of this quality and of this nature, you will not want to miss!
