Provenance The Collection of Billy Ahearn | Lots 1–55 I’ve known many “Williams” in my life, but I don’t think I’ve ever met one who was more a “Billy” than my good friend. With shoulders like a brick wall and a ferocious 19th century moustache, to my history-focused mind Billy Ahearn had the look and bearing of a Tammany Hall enforcer from the Boss Tweed days. A Vietnam War veteran, New York City fireman and master saloon keeper, his booming voice and distinct New York way of expressing himself added to the unforgettable and endearing personality he truly was. If you love American colonial history, and the firearms used during that era, then chances are that Billy was your friend too. Remarkably humble, he was probably never aware that he’d become an integral part of a new, pioneering generation of military arms collectors and scholars. Billy’s first book, Muskets of the Revolution and the French & Indian Wars, published in 2005, marked a radical departure from the works of authors like Dr. DeWitt Bailey and George Neumann. While these gentlemen focused on typology, production, and technologic evolution, Billy wrote about history and used the guns themselves to illustrate America’s colonial wars. He could take an academically classified “Pattern 1742 Land Service Musket” and transform it into a metal and wood witness to the Siege of Fort William Henry, an event immortalized in James Fennimore Cooper’s Last of the Mohicans. Billy’s unique way of plugging a firearm into its historical contexts magnified both its significance and intrigue, making it ripe for sharing with other antique arms aficionados. Billy’s unwavering desire to share his treasures concludes with this final act. Successful bidders will earn the privilege of caring for and preserving the artifacts he loved so much. I can see him smiling broadly with great pleasure as these important relics of America’s early days pass on to their new, like-minded custodians. No doubt these lucky folks will cherish them, their amazing histories, and their connection to a wonderful collector, scholar and friend. —Erik Goldstein, Williamsburg, Virginia, September 21, 2018

The Collection of David F. Post | Lots 56–223 David F. Post was born in Marlborough, Massachusetts, on September 10, 1915. He moved to Swampscott, Massachusetts, and graduated high school in the Class of 1954. He later served in the National Guard. In 1970, he and his family moved to Plaistow, New Hampshire, and established State Line Kennel. In 1974 he started State Line Tack Shop, a discount horse tack store that made equestrian riding affordable to all. In the 1980s, his business became one of the largest retail and mail order companies in the country. He enjoyed woodworking and carving, fishing, hunting, collecting and restoring antique automobiles. He was an accomplished bird-dog trainer and enjoyed taking part in competitive trials. Of his many passions, collecting antique Colt revolvers and Winchester lever-action rifles was high on the list— he amassed a collection of both high-end collector pieces as well as examples he liked to shoot. He was proud of his collection and it was on display for visitors to his home to see and study. Skinner is honored to offer his extensive collection at auction.

The light infantry and grenadier companies were on the expedition to Concord that day. The grenadier companies carried the 1756 long land pattern musket, as did the battalion companies that marched out of Boston with Percy’s relief column.

N.B. Born in Austria, de Weldon established himself early in his career as a sculptor in Vienna and London. He moved to the U.S. in 1938 and became a citizen in 1945. His most notable work is the bronze Iwo Jima Memorial in Arlington Cemetery, which remains “the most famous monument of World War II” (Reynolds 161). Serving in the Navy in WWII, de Weldon was inspired by Joe Rosenthal’s photograph of six American soldiers raising a flag at Mount Suribachi, Iwo Jima. He made a small sculpture of the figure group using local materials, gaining the attention of his commanding officer and eventually of the U.S. Congress, which commissioned him to create the Arlington Cemetery monument, 48 feet in height, which was dedicated in 1954. $400-600
