Cranston, RI, USA, December 13, 2022 — Rare and highly collectible 18th and 19th century pistols from England and the United States will dominate the list of expected top lots in Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers’ 320-lot online-only Historic Arms & Militaria auction, slated for Saturday, December 10th, beginning promptly at 10 am Eastern time. It will be the first major winter auction event for Bruneau & Co.
The sale is well-rounded, with objects that are affordable for the beginning collector to the most advanced. Areas of focus include the French & Indian War, the American Revolution, the Civil War, World War I and World War II, as well as modern firearms. It contains everything from matchlock muskets to M1 Garand rifles, plus other desirable collectable militaria and uniforms.
“The auction contains an array of great material from many collections, including matchlock muskets from the 17th century, Revolutionary war-era muskets and bayonets, early 19th century arms, some really interesting early bolt-action rifles from the late 19th century, and collectible arms from World War I and II,” said Joel Bohy, Bruneau & Co.’s Director of Arms & Militaria.
Mr. Bohy added, “There is something for everyone in this auction, no matter what your interests are. For me, it is really interesting to look at the technology and engineering in the early arms and see how they changed over the centuries. It’s a learning experience also, as I see and handle these fine historic arms.” This will be Bruneau & Co.’s sixth Historic Arms & Militaria auction.
