Fine Autographs and Artifacts showing on iCollector.com

iCollector.com is presenting online viewing of the Nov 11th Auction from RR Auction. This auction catalog has over 1100 lots available for viewing with an incredible array of autographs and artifacts available for bidding through the auctioneer. Included in the selection are autographed pieces from many US Presidents, historical figures, political leaders, royalty, and important people from around the world. RR Auctions is a globally recognized and trusted source for rare documents, manuscripts, autographs, and historic artifacts. They have achieved countless record setting prices in over 425 successful sales and have an international reputation through both media and private collectors.

The very first lot in the catalog is an important document signed by George Washington. This is a one page receipt for supplies shipped to “The Potowmack Company” and signed by Washington. It is one page and measures 7.25” by 5”, and dated June 6th, 1785. This has intersecting folds with tiny edge separation, uniform toning, and a bit of show through from docketing to reverse; otherwise this is in fine condition. A full and detailed description of this document is available in the online catalog and this is looking to fetch at least $6000 in the auction.

An historical piece that stands out in this sale is a set of Space Shuttle Medallions up for auction at Lot 571. This is a near complete collection of 129 unflown sterling silver Space Shuttle Robbins medals from the collection of Apollo astronaut Walter Cunningham. This consists of medals from all missions except STS-1, STS-7, STS-9, STS-41B, and STS-51D. The collection includes the highly sought after restruck medallions for the tragic STS-51L and STS-107 missions. This has some of the rarest medallions available and most of them measure about 1.5” in diameter. Serial numbers are engraved on the edges up to STS-120. All are in their original cases and the condition is generally mint state. A complete list, along with photos, and a biography of Walter Cunningham is available in the online catalog. This significant collection carries a pre sale estimate of $50000 to $60000.

A fantastic vintage 1968 album page with fountain pen signatures from the Beatles is showing at Lot 788. It includes signatures from John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison, on an off-white 5.25” by 3.75” album page, and a felt tip signature saying “Love Ringo Starr” on a second album page. Accompanied with this wonderful autograph piece is a certificate of authenticity from Tracks and a letter of provenance from the original recipient. This full provenance is detailed in the online catalog along with a photo of the signatures. The estimate here is $5000 to $6000.

The full catalog is showing on iCollector.com up until November 11th, 2015. Interested bidders can contact the auctioneer through the website to discuss being part of the auction and placing bids. RR Auction carefully prepared this incredible catalog and look forward to sharing these treasures with collectors and historians around the world.
