Prehistoric & Historic Artifact Auction
HORSEFLY BUSH AND BEANIE JOHNSON COLLECTIONS. We are pleased to offer a portion of the DUANE (BEANIE) JOHNSON Collection. Duane is downsizing his collection and provided many of the lots in this sale. Duane has collected for many years. Many of his artifacts have never before been offered for public auction. Portions of Duane's collection are featured in Who's Who #8 and Who's Who #9. It is also our pleasure to offer a grouping of artifacts from the MARION (HORSEFLY) BUSH Collection. Over 50 lots, coming from the family and through the Johnson Collection will be auctioned. Marion Bush was featured in Who's Who #2. He and his brother, Billy, were prominent collectors in the 1950's and 1960's. A few choice consignments from prominent collections will round out this sale. Many of the artifacts offered in this auction have been pictured in prominent books and journals. Over 250 lots have been authenticated by independent authenticators. RARELY ARE SO MANY PICTURED AND PAPERED ARTIFACTS OFFERED IN ONE AUCTION.
