Annual Live Auction

Many years ago, the annual PEA Holiday Auction started as a way for the retail members to showcase their merchandise to other members.  It has evolved over the years into a fun tradition with participation by both retailers and service-based businesses and allows members to learn more about what other member businesses have to offer, while giving us all a chance to get some of our own holiday shopping done.

This year’s auction is scheduled for December 17 during our regular business meeting.

Two 1885 Morgan Silver Dollars

Offered by:
Judy Johnson, Unexpected Treasures

1885 Morgan Silver Dollars

Starting bid $20 each or $40 for the pair

U.S. “Morgan” silver dollars were minted between 1878 and 1921. They are among the most enjoyed and collected of our country’s silver dollars.

“Morgans” were designed by George T. Morgan. Each weighs 26.7300 grams nd is 0.9000 silver (90%). Part of their value changes with the changing value of silver as a commodity. The other part of their
value depends upon, among other things, where they were minted (which may be indicated with a letter on the coin). For example, a valuable Morgan could have “CC” embossed on the coin for Carson City, NV. Very valuable!
These coins do not have that designation. Nevertheless, they are beautiful Morgans.

Hermes 3000 Portable Typewriter (Mid-Century)

Offered by:
Judy Johnson, Unexpected Treasures

Hermes 3000 Portable Typewriter (Mid-Century)

Starting bid $125 

“Hermes 3000” typewriters were designed and made by Paillard-Bolex, Yverdo, Switzerland from 1958 into the 1980s. An early predecessor the “Hermes Baby” was the first truly portable typewriter to be put on the market, in 1932.

A “Hermes 2000”, predecessor to the “3000”, started Tom Hanks’ collection of over 3,000 typewriters in 1977, and the Hermes 3000 is the one luxury item said he would “choose to take with him.”

Author Larry McMurtry thanked his Hermes 3000 typewriter when accepting is Golden Globe for “Brokeback Mountain” saying it is “surely one of the noblest instruments of European (Swiss) genius which has kept me for 30 years off the dry embrace of the computer.’

San Francisco beat poet Jack Kerouac wrote his last novel on a Hermes 3000.

Sylvia Plath’s 1959 Hermes 3000 sold at auction in 2018 for $46,000.

Tom Hanks changing the ribbon on a Hermes 3000 on You Tube is worth a watch!

This mid-century typewriter is probably from 1970s. It is in good condition overall, but the keys stick. It will need servicing and a new ribbon. A great place
for that is:

  • Ideal Slope: 66 degree slope creates optimal comfort and hand/wrist positioning.

  • Comfortable Feel: Anti-slip texture grip and rubberized coating provide maximum comfort.
  • Forward/Back Keys: Page forward or Page back with convenient thumb keys.
