Out of an abundance of caution for our staff and clients, Cowan’s has decided to hold the Wednesday, March 25 Collectible Firearms and Accoutrements auction as a Timed Auction on Cowan’s website. If you had previously left absentee bids on Cowans.com for this auction, those bids have been transferred over to the Timed Auction format. You can view and/or edit your bids by logging into your My Cowan's account on cowans.com.
