This single-owner sale features unique and diverse examples spanning every stage of firearms development from early matchlocks to the closing days of World War II. Several master-crafted European items from the collection have been prominently displayed at distinguished museums such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Smithsonian Institution. In addition, there are several one-of-a-kind US Military Arms and Congressional Presentation pieces. A collection of this scope and quality is unlike any other offered in the United States in recent memory and likely will not be in the foreseeable future. Cowan’s arms historians are honored to partner with Peter Wainwright in the sale of this unrivaled collection.
