HISTORICAL AVIATION PHOTO 1903 - WWII AUCTION
Affiliated Coins, Antiques, & Auctions is proud to announce our HISTORICAL AVIATION PIONEER, WWI, WWII, PHOTOGRAPHS, DOCUMENTS, AVIATION EPHEMERA AUCTION to be held Tuesday & Wednesday, January 17th & 18th at 9:00AM EST on both days located on our premises at 2500 Apalachee Parkway, Tallahassee, FL. This collection consists of: Approximately 5,000 photographs and historical documents dating between 1903-1944 mainly aviation related. At the beginning of WWI, aviation was expanding into commercial and military use and photographs such as these are now viewed as important documentation of the early history of aviation. Many photos are stamped Oskar Ursinus and we even have a handwritten letter that was sent to him. We believe most of the correspondence and perhaps the photographs were intended for his magazine "Flugsport" Some photos still have crop marks and some were made into collages. Also included in this collection is a fantastic assortment of German and European WWII imagery, as well as American, French, Canadian, and other military photographs, ephemera, and original aviation blueprints and plans. This collection was compiled by a local WWII decorated bomber pilot over a 50 year period.
