Moran’s often takes on special collections that may not necessarily fit under the banner of our curated specialty auctions. Special collectables like coins or musical instruments can warrant a catalogue of their own, or will occasionally be featured as a capsule collection of any of our auctions throughout the year.
We are also uniquely poised to celebrate a collector’s passion with a single-consignor legacy sale, and can tailor an entire catalogue or dedicate a section of one of our existing catalogues to accommodate an estate or a living collection of any size.
