This auction features a book that unlocks the secrets of the universe. It is one of the most fascinating things I have sold since I have been in business.  I saw this book on E-bay and other collector book sites listed for around $10,000.00.  Stop by and check this item out.  You won't regret it. 

In addition to this amazing book we also have pockets watches.  2 of the pocket watches have Masonic ties.  All of the pocket watches were taken to a local, longtime watchmaker for descriptions. 

Last but not least we have a Sterling Silver vintage collector spoon collection. All items are marked sterling and were weighed.
