What are Heritage Auctions Historical Auctions?
HA.com recently changed the title of the department from Americana to Historical. We have expanded our horizons dramatically with the addition or expansion of several exciting collecting areas including rare books, space, photography, and natural history. This has necessitated the broadening of our department's title to something more descriptive of what we are really all about. The word "historical" can be defined as simply "important in history." Fundamentally, we offer collectibles and memorabilia that have shaped or changed our world and our culture, items that relate to those individuals, groups, causes, or inventions that have influenced our history.
By taking a look at our Historical categories, Americana & Political Memorabilia, American Indian Art, Rare Books & Manuscripts, Civil War, Natural History, Militaria, & Space, this will give you an idea of the scope of our current and future offerings.
Among our more exciting auction additions is our Legends of the Wild West sale, held twice yearly in spring and fall. These auctions embrace the whole category of Western collectibles with a special emphasis on items related to iconic lawmen, gunfighters, Indians and Indian fighters, Wild West Show performers, and other personalities whose colorful careers figure so prominently in our popular images of the Old West.From minerals and fossils dug from the depths of the earth to flags and medals that have actually been to the surface of the moon. From American Indian stone war clubs to jewel-encrusted swords presented to Civil War heroes. From pages printed by Gutenberg to the finest rare modern limited editions. Heritage Auctions' Historical Department is your source for all of this and so much more. Heritage Auctions (www.HA.com)
