CATALOG #112 posts TUESDAY September 10

Our new catalog will open on Tuesday September 10 at 3:00 pm US Central Time.

Remember: to give everybody the best possible chance, we do not sell anything before the catalog opens.  In fact, we remain closed to phone traffic and emails on opening day until the exact moment that the new catalog opens.

So, if it is 3:00 pm in Missouri.. what time is that where you live?
Follow along on the AGM home page countdown clock.

Catalog 112 opens on Tuesday September 10 at 3:00 pm US central time. 
flying_pig_3 A second AGM catalog, just days after a new one opened?  I thought briefly about reaching out to a few of my favorite pals in various tinfoil hat clubs to see which flavor of apocalypse is foretold by such a thing.. but selfishly just could not make myself dial the numbers.  If you know, or think you know - don't tell me - let it be a surprise.  Might not be a bad time to stock up on bottled water, though - just sayin'.

With the large trench art collection that we are processing, we have three follow-on sales in the works comparable in size to this one. 
So, what do you need to know about Catalog 112?
  • As we have for the past several catalogs when it opens, the new stuff -in this case all trench art- will under the very mysteriously titled category NEW LISTINGS.
  • Everything else that is currently available will be listed in the regular categories.  If you had your eye on an item last week and it had not yet sold when we shifted gears to 112 on Monday, it will be there when #112 opens up, but listed in it's native category; i.e. that US 1830's powder flask will be in the first US category, the Kaiserliche Marine saber is in Imperial German, etc. 
  • Just in case 375 new pieces of trench art in NEW LISTINGS is not enough to choose from, there is more!  Items that previously appeared on Catalog 111 or earlier are also in the normal TRENCH ART category
  • The new Insider member preview opens this time at 12:00 noon on Tuesday.  Please keep in mind, this is a view behind the green curtain.  At that point on the day prior to a catalog opening, we are often still uploading images, finding and correcting errors, reshooting items where necessary, and making other small changes.  If you don't see photos of a particular item, check back later.  If you are not an Insider; fear not: the preview is just that - a preview.  Instead of a "BUY" button, a countdown to the catalog opening is displayed.  Sales don't start until it is open to EVERYONE at 3:00 pm.
Catalog 112 contains around 375 brand new listings.  Here are some of the highlights!  These by no means reflect the whole catalog, or even necessarily the 'best' items.  They were simply images that stood out when I was browsing through Laura's photos.  (BTW - this is our employee Laura's debut as a catalog photographer.)

We have had items from Jane Kimball's extraordinary collection previously, but this will be the first large topic-specific catalog to feature her items.  In here you will find trench art dating from as far back as the Boer War, and there are some WWII pieces as well, but the majority either date from or commemorate the Great War.  There are a large number of shells of course, including AEF unit-specific trench art some of the very seldom encountered painted examples.  You will also find interesting carved wood pieces, bone art from Prisoner of War and Enemy Alien detention camps, and several of the Turkish POW beadwork snakes.  The most impressive of these is an example over 16 feet long!
So what else will you find on Catalog 112?
