Bidding Notice: REGISTER & BID NOW | PRE-BIDDING IS OPEN. LIVE ONLINE AUCTION BEGINS AT 9AM EASTERN ON SATURDAY, MARCH 20TH 2021.

LEAVING ABSENTEE or PRE-BIDS: You are able to leave pre-bids / absentee bids ahead of the Live Auction. This is very useful if you will not be available during the live sale. We recommend leaving your highest and best bid. All pre-bids will be executed by the online bidding software. Absentee bids are only executed to the increment necessary to win the lot. For Example: if you leave a bid of $800 on a lot, but in the course of competitive bidding, the lot ONLY requires a bid of $400 to win, you will win the lot at $400. We stress, it is important to leave your highest and best bid when leaving absentee bids. Following each auction, we consistently hear from buyers who wish they had been more aggressive with their absentee bids - don't let this be you.

BIDDING LIVE ONLINE: Please make certain you set a reminder, the live online auction begins at 9am Eastern on Saturday, March 20th 2021. Don't miss it. Also, please do not hesitate in hitting the Bid Button while bidding live. The sale moves quickly, so please Bid quickly. Hesitation in executing your Bid may cause you to miss out on winning the lot.

Michael “Mike” Snite Antique Firearms/Saber Estate Auction Lawson & Company Gallery April 17, 2021, 10 a.m. E.S.T The estate sale of Mike Snite’s antique and relic firearms and sabers will be a walk through American Western and military history. Mike, who passed away in early 2019, focused on three things with his collection – Winchester repeating rifles in varying calibers, Colt SAA revolvers and Model 1840 Dragoon cavalry sabers. Mike was very particular with his purchases. He verified internal serial numbers and markings. Every firearm was considered museum grade. We think you’ll agree. Mike’s business card read simply “Collector of Winchester repeating rifles,” but his fondness for Colt SAA’s was obvious. He was very interested in the Old West. Mike also owned 1911s, some percussion cap Dragoons and at one point a Gatling gun. His collection includes other firearms and weapons, and some interesting gun leather. Check our website for the full offering. A former president (1983-1984) of the Michigan Antique Arms Collectors – he held every leadership position there over more than 25 years – in May 1974 Mike had the show’s best handgun display of Colt SAA’s. He won the “Ten Best Arms” award at the 1989 NRA Convention. He also belonged to the Ohio Gun Collector’s Club (a 47-year member) and Maryland Arms Collector’s Association. A career commercial pilot, Mike also was a sailing enthusiast, owning two sailboats, and he belonged to the Great Lakes Cruising Club out of Chicago for a quarter century. Mike’s father, John T. “Bud” Snite, co-founded the club in 1933-34, and was its Commodore in 1937. Mike’s estate includes some interesting maritime collectibles, Morris Rosenfeld photographs and two Frederic Cozzens chromolithographs. Mike’s collection will be auctioned April 17, 2021, at 10 a.m. Eastern Time. The Lawson & Company Gallery welcomes collectors and enthusiasts to a special Preview Day on April 16, 2021, from 12 noon-6:30 p.m., E.S.T, or to visit our website. If you can’t make the auction but are interested in bidding, you can do so by visiting www.lawsonandco.hibid.com, where his collection will be sold via a webcast auction. Calls are appreciated if anyone has questions about a particular item, but we urge you to come by and see these treasures firsthand. Lawson & Company Gallery is located at 1280 E. Main St., just east of Hendricks Regional Hospital, in Danville, Indiana. Phone: 317-745-6404. Website: www.lawsonandco.com.

Military medals, badges, insignia, ribbons, and patches mean many things in armed forces around the world. Decorations may be awarded for valor in combat, such as a Distinguished Service Medal; others to recognize service in a particular theater of war or campaign, such as Afghanistan. There are shoulder sleeve insignia, distinctive unit insignia, unit crests, and other indicia for dress uniforms as well as combat uniforms. They can indicate rank, specialty, commendations, qualifications, or the unit a service member belongs to. Among the military medals you're likely to find in this category are the Purple Heart, Medal of Honor, Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, the British Victoria Cross, the German Iron Cross and Blue Max, and the Japanese Order of the Rising Sun. Pins with clutch pin backs (pinbacks) include lapel pins and hat pins. Examples include the Oak Leaf of a major; the Marines' Eagle, Globe, and Anchor, and a Special Forces crest. Famous patches recognizable at a glance are the 101st Airborne “Screaming Eagle,” the 2nd Armored Division “Hell On Wheels,” the 1st Infantry Division “Big Red One,” and the US Army 1st Cavalry. Many are vintage collector's items from conflicts such as World War II, Vietnam, World War I, and Korea. Others are more recent from operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Looking for a particular military insignia and not finding it? Check back in a few days. Sellers often post new items for auction on HiBid.com.
