DENVER, PENN. — Collectors of advertising material kept phone bidders, the internet, a scattering of people in the gallery and the auctioneer with absentee bids very busy on Saturday and Sunday, September 10 and 11, when 1,113 lots crossed the block at Morphy Auctions. It all started out with a fisherman’s occupational shaving mug selling for $123 and ended with $308 being paid for a Dandy Vendor Penny Smoke trade simulator, circa 1930s.
In between the star of the sale was lot 986, a Dr A.C. Daniels animal medicine cabinet, 27½ inches tall, the wood in very good condition and the sign on the door with some light fading. It carried a $700–$1,400 estimate and climbed to $19,680, including the buyer’s premium.
A complete review of this auction will be in a future issue.
