“In this highly competitive category, Wes Cowan’s auction house took the lead in 2017, showcasing some pretty impressive offerings. The historical photographs appeals to lovers of Old West history, and last year saw a shocking sale of photographs when a Wounded Knee photograph album hammered down at $22,000.
“Cowan’s particularly shined last year by highlighting two incredible American history collections: antique firearms expert Norman Flayderman’s American history collectibles and Eric C. Caren’s Paper Americana.
“The year also saw the debut of its first prehistoric art auction. Cowan’s continued commitment to American history shines particularly in its selection of Old West collectibles.”
