Introducing Our Fall 2019 Auction

Big news! This fall, our team here at The Great Republic are bringing you a special treat: a fall auction! That’s right, those pieces you have had your eye on are now available for bids online. Read more about our fall 2019 auction below.

Americana: Books, Flags & Autographs

Coming to you this fall is our exclusive company auction. This auction is a new look for us: we’ve never auctioned off our pieces before, but this October we are trying something new. Here are the basics:


What?

    Fall auction, giving clients the ability to bid on one-of-a-kind Americana from The Great Republic.

When?

    Saturday, October 26th, 2019. Happening LIVE at 1pm EST.

Where?

    Bidding happening through the online platform Invaluable.

How?

    Register to bid with Invaluable (link below) so that you can place absentee bids and bid live on October 26th!


Here's How It Will Work

We have a total of 174 lots for our first auction. This means lots of first edition books, rare maps, Civil War memorabilia, signed documents and much, much more! These items vary greatly; some of them are framed according to our traditional archival standards, and some are unframed; giving you the opportunity to snag some great deals!

The lots are active NOW and can be viewed HERE. We are using the platform Invaluable for our auction, which is a well established auction website where you can place bids, view lots, inquire about products, etc. To view lots, simply follow the auction lots link, or search through Invaluable by typing in The Great Republic.

On auction day, tune into our auction link on Invaluable to join the live auction. Bids will commence in live time, as we will be accepting online and phone in bids.

Take a look at our full digital auction catalog HERE  to browse lots and read a bit more about the pieces. You can use this catalog as a reference point for the live auction.
