A three-day auction will feature more than 1,000 collectibles, including fine and decorative art, jewelry, firearms, vintage cars and other notable items on Thursday, May 26, Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28 at J. Levine Auction & Appraisal, 10345 N. Scottsdale Road.

Two bas-relief sculptures that were part of the 1915 World’s Fair in San Francisco will be auctioned on the first day.

In addition to metope Pan and Athena relief plaques, there will be a 1968 Chevy Camaro, a 1963 Chevy pick-up truck and scarce Winchester, UMC, Remington Kleanbore and other die-cut posters and bronze sculptures. Animal mounts that belonged to the late Gary Swanson, a renowned wildlife artist, will be auctioned.

The massive Steve Paley Americana Collection will showcase rare antiques from the 1800s to the 1960s.  A portion of proceeds from the Paley collection sale will benefit the National Rifle Association.

“Steve Paley is a well-known name among serious collectors worldwide,” said Josh Levine, auctioneer and owner of J. Levine Auction and Appraisal. “It’s a true honor to represent his estate, especially because his collectibles are so scarce.”
