Weapons from Europe were in high demand for both days of Cowan’s Historic Firearms and Early Militaria Auction held May 3 & 4, 2017 in the auction house’s Cincinnati salesroom. The auction featured some of the rarest of the rare in European weaponry spanning multiple eras from the 16th century through World War II.
“We made our name selling some of finest Civil War pieces to ever hit the market, but after this sale there should be no doubt left in anyone’s mind that we can sell European pieces with the best of them,” said Jack Lewis, Cowan’s director of Firearms & Militaria. “This is just the tip of the iceberg for us. You can expect more of the same in coming sales.”
