ST. MICHAELS, Md. — More than 500 lots of fine sporting arms come to auction at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in Guyette & Deeter‘s two-day event, scheduled for Monday, September 11 and Tuesday, September 12 (Day 1, Day 2). Bidding is available at LiveAuctioneers.

Quality and rarity are hallmarks among the top lots of the sale. The firearms built by Parker Bros. Manufacturing Company (1867-1942) are today considered some of the finest shotguns ever made, and as such exceptional pieces command top prices in the contemporary market.

For example, this Parker 28 gauge shotgun in like-new condition with original packaging, hang tag and a 1941 letter from Parker to the buyer is estimated at $50,000-$90,000. It is described by the auctioneer as “truly exceptional, essentially as new.”

From master British gunsmiths Holland & Holland, holder of two Royal warrants, comes this set of two 1999-built “Royal” opening shotguns. Built using vintage Holland & Holland traits, the boxed set is estimated at $50,000-$75,000.

Germany’s fine arms artisans are well represented in the sale. On Day 2, this engraved and gold-inlaid single-shot percussion rifle from M.A. Gmeiner & Sohn, dating to the 1800s, is in incredible condition. The engraving features imagery of two hunters (jaegers) discussing their take of the day while a hound looks on. Winner of a 10 Best Arms Award at an NRA event, this piece has an estimate of $10,000-$18,000.

Register now for both Day 1 and Day 2 at Guyette & Deeter’s Fine Sporting Arms auction September 11-12.
