Denver, PA -(AmmoLand.com)- Morphy’s Sunday, September 20 auction features the widest spectrum of firearms the company has offered to date, with a 988-lot selection of guns, edged weapons and ammunition that spans five centuries of production.

There are many rarities in the auction lineup, including early European guns and one of the largest arrays of early American firearms ever brought to market in a single sale. The vast offering of Winchesters, Colts, Sharps and military guns follows a timeline that traces every conflict in which the United States has ever been involved, with an especially fine grouping of Civil War weapons included.

“Our goal with this and all of our Firearms sales is to offer collectors the very best examples of guns that have great design integrity, rarity and historical importance,” said Dave Bushing, Morphy’s Firearms division expert.

Each of the antique or vintage items chosen for the September 20 auction has been personally evaluated and cataloged by Bushing, a highly respected authority in his field.
