GOING ONCE, GOING TWICE…: Black Hills Stock Show Foundation Stockman’s auction
The Stockman’s Auction, one of the major fundraising activities of the BHSSF Scholarship Fund is conducted annually during the BHSS Stockman’s Banquet and Ball which is being held on Saturday, January 31st, at the Best Western Ramkota, doors open at 5 pm. Amidst all the gala, glamour, fine food and camaraderie the Foundation offers a very select array of items for auction representing a broad range of artistic disciplines plus annual commemorative items supporting our western history and way of life.
This year the offering will include the 3rd Commemorative firearm, an authentic Uberti reproduction of the Remington Model 1875 Army Outlaw .45 colt Single Action Revolver with a 7 ½”barrel and walnut grip. As some of you may already know – the infamous Frank James carried one for most of his outlaw career. The revolver has been fully engraved by A&A Engraving. Jack Gully of K Bar J Leathers has provided a handcrafted holster and belt made specifically for this gun and ammunition will be provided by Black Hills Ammunition. A rather unique opportunity for any firearm collector or anyone who appreciates beautiful guns.
Tony Chytka has again joined our incredible group of donors and participants and will be unveiling the No. 1 issue of a new work. A new item on the docket this year is a beautiful BHSSF quilt featuring a sampling of the “The Great American Cowboy Series” prints. The Commemorative BHSSF Handcrafted Sterling Silver Trophy Buckle enhanced with gold filigree and blue sapphire jewels provided by Montana Silversmiths will also grace the offering table.
The auction will also offer the single issue 2015 engraved Silver Spade Bit, Ed Lawrence men’s engraved spurs, fabulous handcrafted jewelry, distinctive hand tooled leather items along with many other offerings. Not the least of which will be a Two-Night Accommodations Package (Aug 20 & 21) plus a $100 dining card for “Cool Deadwood Nights” courtesy of the Deadwood Mountain Grand. As many of the exceptional 25 sale items as possible will soon be available for viewing at http://www.bhssf.com Stockman’s Auction. And, just a reminder, all proceeds from the Auction benefit the BHSSF Scholarship Fund.
