Overview

Two extraordinary WWII documents headline our 2017 Arms and Militaria Auction. The first is the English version of the German surrender demand made at Bastogne in 1944 that prompted General Anthony McAuliffe's legendary response,  "NUTS!" The second is an original Potsdam Proclamation collected by Secret Service Agent Elmer R. Hipsley. This previously unknown copy has been discreetly stored within a map of Berlin since Mr. Hipsley's passing in 1968. Rounding out the sale is a Civil War era cane and a presentation grade sword belonging to Colonel Whitman. All lots in this auction are being offered unreserved. Select items will be available for preview at the Las Vegas Antique Arms Show January 20-22 and at our Sacramento gallery January 12th from 12 - 5 p.m.
