PITTSBURGH, PA – Last October Old Toy Soldier Auctions (OTSA) introduced its Investment Rarities Auction series with the revered James Cook collection. Led by early Britains military sets of extreme rarity, the 103-lot offering attracted enthusiasts from all over the world and grossed $305,000, a new house record for an OTSA boutique sale. On Saturday, Oct. 8, the Pittsburgh-based auction house will once again roll out the big guns with a single-owner, 168-lot Investment Rarities sale of the Bill Jackey Collection, Part I. Bidding will be available by phone, absentee and live via the Internet through LiveAuctioneers.
“This Britains-only specialty sale will be short but very sweet,” said OTSA founder and owner Ray Haradin.
