One of the most exciting services we offer is the ability to conduct worldwide auctions for collections. This option allows the owner to attain the maximum current market value for their collection - and sometimes even more! Our use of state of the art live auction technology allows bidders around the world to participate. This has resulted in WORLD RECORD prices obtained for some models of helmets.

When Nation's Attic handles the auction for your collection, you can be assured we will handle everything from picking the items up, full inventory, professional photography, promotion, modern online auction technology, safe storage, after sale processing of payments and shipping each item to our clients worldwide.

While the auction process typically takes months to prepare it also will allow you to realize in some cases prices paid for items that set records. By allowing Nation's Attic to take their time and expertise to auction your collection you will be rewarded for all your hard work in originally assembling  your pride and joy. Give us a call or email and find out just how hard and effective we will work for you!
