Milestone Auctions celebrates first million-dollar sale, Jan. 19
WILLOUGHBY, Ohio – Milestone Auctions in suburban Cleveland lived up to its name on Saturday, January 19, ringing up its first million-dollar auction since opening its doors in August 2014. The 809-lot sale of historical militaria and firearms, which lasted 13 hours due to competitive bidding on almost every item, realized $1.1 million, inclusive of 20% buyer’s premium. Absentee and Internet live bidding was facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.
The top lot of the sale, a cased 1939 German SA presentation dagger with an E.F. Horster Damascus blade, sold for $66,000 against a pre-sale estimate of $15,000-$20,000.
A full postsale report will appear on Auction Central News later this week.
