Unique Firearm crossing the block at The Super Auction

A unique firearm is one of the many items to be sold at the upcoming Super Auction on February 28, 2009 at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds in Arbor, Michigan. The piece is a Jamestown Rifle made in North Carolina at the Guliford County School by Thomas Merritt Fletcher in the mid 18th century. It has a full stock with Silver inlay through out. The rifle has been in a private collection for over thirty years and is fresh to the market.

"We are excited to have such a interesting piece of history in the inaugural Super Auction," commented David Helmer of Braun and Helmer Auction Service and The Super Auction manager. "The gun is a stunning piece and represents both a piece of firearm history as well as something of beauty and value. We except both gun collectors and collectors of period craftsmanship to take an interest in this firearm."

When asked about what the gun would bring at the auction Helmer noted, "A conservative pre-auction estimate of the weapon is $1,000-1500. Absentee bids are accepted but this piece is best appreciated in person. "

The Super Auction starts at 10:00 AM EST and is likely to run through 3:00 PM with the firearm mentioned in this notice selling at the very beginning of the auction.
