Source Title Holabird Kagin Americana
Description

Holabird-Kagin Americana is the combined creative vision of Fred Holabird and Dr. Donald Kagin. Our company is devoted to bringing collectors only the greatest Western Americana rarities, with an emphasis on numismatics, currency, and western Americana. Under the leadership and direction of Fred Holabird–and assisted by the hardworking Reno office and numismatic experts at Kagin’s, Inc.–we combine the efforts of both companies to bring you a unique piece of western American history in every item we sell and in every catalog we publish. It is our goal to ensure our clients the most accurate, detailed item descriptions and well-researched, historically factual backgrounds.

We specialize in buying, selling and appraising western Americana, numismatica (coins, ingots, banknotes), exonumia (pioneer minor coinage/trade tokens), western antiquities, and railroad/mining goods. Our auctions typically feature wide selections of coins, tokens, stocks certificates, documents, photographs, assay certificates, postcards and other antiques and collectibles relating to western history, numismatics and mining, dating from c.1800 to c.1930. We produce several fixed price catalogs each year and hold Americana and numismatic auctions of some of the greatest rarities extant, working personally with our clients to help them build significant collections. We have become known for our well-researched histories on the mining companies, historical figures, and mining districts of the items we sell. Here at Holabird-Kagin Americana, we not only set record-breaking sales prices at our auctions, but we create legends.

Our appraisals have involved some of the largest, most expensive museum items ever publicly displayed or sold.
