"It was a good sale overall, but an unpredictable sale too," said Ray Zyla of Mohawk Arms, Inc. "Items I never expected to do well - common medals, for example - sold for three or four times their high estimates. Other lots fell flat or were stagnant, such as World War I uniforms, certain firearms such as sporting guns and common-type muskets, and the common Civil War artifacts."

But, he added, Colt, Winchester, and Civil War carbine weapons "continue to hold their own," and Civil War presentation swords, especially from the Confederacy, as well as the CSA belts, buckles and bayonets, always seem to do well. "It's a fickle market," Zyla said.

"Areas I thought would do well fell flat, while some others far exceeded our expectations," said Ray Zyla of Mohawk Arms, Inc. "Categories that were somewhat disappointing included German steel helmets and Civil War swords and equipment, although Confederate canteens did do well and were the exception."

As for categories that held their own or surpassed expectations, Zyla listed these to include swords (German Imperial, Third Reich and Samurai especially), Civil War handguns and revolvers, American combat knives, German Third Reich daggers, reference books and medals and badges. He added, "World War I items are coming on strong, but just in interest, not prices."

"We were very pleased with the results of this, our 71st auction," said Ray Zyla, the owner of Mohawk Arms, Inc. "Interest in the Americana items (which included the Rebel cannonball and took into account items from the colonial era to the Civil War, the Spanish-American War and World Wars I and II) is what really put us over the top. Those items did well across the board."

Zyla added, "American World War II items and groupings are gaining in popularity, especially when they can be connected to specific individuals.

Zyla estimated between 75 and 80 people attended the auction in person, while another 800 registered to bid online. Phone and absentee bids were also recorded.
