FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Reno, NV, USA, February 7, 2024 -- A John E. Smith’s Pharmacy (Victor, Colo.) 32-ounce teal drug store bottle sold for $6,250; an early 1900s 14k Klondike, Alaska gold headed walking stick also realized $6,250; and a pair of mint state $25 U.S. Gold Eagle coins (1994 and 2008) fetched $4,700 at a four-day Marvels of the West auction held Jan. 25-28 by Holabird Western Americana Collections, LLC.

Holabird’s original plan was to have two auctions in January – a timed online-only sale in the middle of the month and a live auction (with online bidding) at the end of the month. That idea was scrapped, however, and both sales were combined into one catalog – the timed online sale on Jan. 25-26 and the live auction on Jan. 27-28, online and live at the gallery in Reno, Nevada.

The two auctions were aptly named – Marvels of the West – considering their contents. Both contained about 500-600 lots per day, in the categories collectors have come to expect from Holabird: Western and Native Americana, Gold Rush, mining, coins and currency, railroadiana, tokens, philatelic, bottles, ephemera and more. Start times all four days were 8 am Pacific time.

The 10 ½ inch tall, quart-size John E. Smith’s drug store bottle was a stunningly beautiful teal example from the Ron Reed collection. “Reed specialized in giant 32-ounce Colorado drugstore bottles, and every Colorado collector knew he had this beauty, one of the prizes of his collection and a true prize for any American colored drugstore bottle collector,” remarked Fred Holabird.

When Mr. Reed, a longtime friend, passed away last year, his family asked Mr. Holabird to sell his collection of Colorado embossed bottles. Ron had purchased a number of key pieces out of the previous Gary Bracken sales, and a few “ringers” in the timed sale were snuck in, to entice new collectors into collecting Colorado bottles. A few other bottles that also did well were these:

- A Cyrus Eaton & Co. (Denver, Colo.) early medium to dark amber quart whiskey bottle (“You Bet”), with an applied top, circa 1880-1885, 12 inches tall, in fine shape ($2,500).

- An A. K. Clarke & Co. (Denver) nice and clean amber whiskey quart bottle (“You Bet”), with a tooled top, Prebble W32 and Barnett 164, comes with two documents ($2,125).

- A Gun Wa's Chinese Remedy pint bottle, light yellow amber with a touch of green (“Warranted / Entirely Vegetable / And Harmless”), whittled, lots of bubbles ($2,000).

The early 1900s 14k Klondike, Alaska gold headed walking stick was very fancy, and came with a leather case and a book about the family who owned it, titled The Bushes and the Berrys by Alice Edna Berry. The cane measured 35 ½ inches in length, with a four-inch curved gold handle. There were two buttons of gold quartz, each one measuring one inch by one inch.
