As the final hammer dropped on Downies Auction 310 there is little rest for all involved as consignments for Auction 311 held 10-12 July 2012 are set to make it perhaps our most impressive sale yet!
Headlined by the library of Former Australian Coin and Medal Dealer and Author, Mr Reg Williams, collectors will be given perhaps their only opportunity to secure some of the most important literature to be found. With highlights including; Australian Naval Forces Lists, including 1904-1908 bound in a single volume, 1910, the inter-war and World War II periods, superbly bound medal rolls to Australians for DFC, MC, Gallantry and Distinguished Service Awards, extensive research material and works on Art and Antiques, Numismatics and an array of other topics – this remarkable compilation is set to make Auction 311 one of the most unique and impressive sales thus far.
“We are so pleased to be involved in the sale of Mr Williams’ collection. It is comprehensive collection and for us to be involved in passing it on to future collectors is a great honour.” Downies Australian Coin Auction Specialist, Chris Meallin, said yesterday.
“With an array of items marking some of the historical events that have shaped our nation, it is with great pride that we offer this epic library in our 311th Sale.” Mr Meallin said.
