Our annual Weapons and War Auction features a number of fresh discoveries. The archive of WWI and WWII pilot George W. Hayes is one of the best. The accompanying letter from his commanding officer describing his decision to attack two enemy planes during WWI with a failing motor will give chills to any patriotic American. A WWII souvenir brought home by a soldier almost didn't make it to our office for our Tuesday evaluation day as it was almost thrown out for its offensive symbolism. We are grateful the proceeds from its sale will provide needed support to his wife. This auction has a 19% buyers premium for non credit card purchases through Witherell's.com
