The Rich Penn Spring Auction Event

The Waterloo Convention Center • Waterloo, IA • 200 W. 4th St.

Join us for three sessions with well over 1,000 lots. All sells WITHOUT RESERVE, with many great choices. Pick from these collections that have come to you from across America.

Another vast variety of high quality pieces. This auction includes a number of varied collections, featuring the substantial collection of the late Don Stine of Mount Vernon, IA. Don's life was all about toys & music! He was a voracious collector of toy trains of every variety. In addition, he loved windup toys, especially those by Marx. But the trains were his real passion. In his spare time from being a band director at Mount Vernon HS, Don searched auctions, flea markets, antique stores and malls. He accumulated thousands of toys. As a band director, he also loved instruments. All pieces are fresh to market.

The Stine collection is joined by the Petroliana collection of Frank & Linda Jobe of Macomb, IL. Frank was in the automotive business and collected pieces for his shop. His decades in the business took him across the Midwest and he was always on the lookout for advertising & gas & oil pieces for his shop. Frank and his wife Linda collided with the Penns, Rich & Sharon at a 100 year old Illinois dry goods store auction in the early 1990's. The Jobes were bidding on the same items the Penns were. A friendship was born. Some 30 years later they join together again to market Frank & Linda's collection.

With well over a thousand lots to select from, bidders are again offered a wide variety. As always you'll find advertising, country store pieces, Coca-Cola, mechanical banks, BB-guns, decorative items, furniture and even enough musical instruments to start your own band!

Other categories include artwork, decorative items, lighting, furniture even a small collection of coin operated vending machines and several collectible automobiles. There certainly will be something for everyone!!
