By John Hickey and Brian MurphyPublished May 03, 2019 06:54:00The sale of the Sierra auction house’s historic collection of American artifacts is one of the largest private sales in the country’s history.
It has raised $6.8 billion to date, with an expected return of more than $1 billion in 2019, according to the Sierra Auction Company, which owns the property.
The sale, which took place in New York in May, included items such as the first locomotive to be built at the company’s factory in Buffalo, N.Y., as well as the world’s first steam locomotive, which powered the first steam trains in the United States.
Sierra is also the largest auction house in the world, with more than 80,000 items on its shelves, according the auction company.
The auction house said the sale was a milestone for its mission of providing an accessible, fair and transparent marketplace for American history and culture, which it hopes will help people find what they are looking for in the marketplace.
In addition to its role in the preservation of America’s history, the company has a focus on supporting the arts, arts education and the conservation of heritage and culture.
For the sale, the auction house donated a portion of proceeds to the New York Museum of Modern Art, which is based in the city, and the New England Society for American History, a nonprofit organization.
In its announcement, Sierra said the auction would include more than 4,000 artifacts from its collection, including a collection of artifacts from the Civil War, World War I and World War II.
Seth Borenstein, a partner at the law firm of Weiss & Baum, led the auction.
Borenstenson said the collection will include items that have become a “tradition of the auction industry.”
“This is a huge day for the history and a tremendous opportunity to bring our community together and showcase America’s rich heritage,” Borenstone said in a statement.SUNDAY MAY 04SUNDERGROUND SALE: Sierra Auction’s collection of relics from the Sierra Nevada desert, which will be auctioned at the auction, will include the first and only steam locomotives in the US.

S&P Capital IQ, the firm that owns the auction and owns the company, said in an announcement that it has committed $2.4 billion to support education and preservation efforts in California and in other parts of the country.
S&.;P said it has received more than 3,200 offers for the collection, but it expects to complete the sale within weeks.
Sidney Russ, a professor at Stanford University’s School of Business, said the value of the collection could exceed $20 billion, and its inclusion on the auction’s website makes it a good place for the company to sell off its collection.
Russ said the company had sold its collection at auction in 2015 for $2 billion.SALES FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA: The sale of a collection from the southern California Deserts is another major example of how American history can be preserved.
