FBA has won the exclusive right to bring to auction the prominent estate of Robert A Truax. Mr. Truax was well known for his historical expertise on Washington DC History and the century-long history of Washington Streetcars. He wrote books and articles related to local streetcars, post office machine cancelling methods, and streetcar postal cancellations. He was a well respected research volunteer at the Washingtonian Room of the Martin Luther King Memorial Library.

The estate includes arguably the finest collection of mobile postage stamp cancelations. This is the second installment of items from the Truax estate. "The first session of this collection was a tremendous success," added Ms. Swartley-Ko.

In addition to the Truax collection, the auction will also comprise hundreds of additional items of interest including jewelry, watches, loose stones, art, coins, collectibles, rugs, fine silver, and much more.

The Truax estate includes some very rare and desirable items, and the FBA auction will be the only way to access them.
