Estate Auctions Inc. is pleased to announce another quality item up for auction on eBay. A vintage and very rare Auerhahn bird taxidermy mount dated 1948. The original information on the listing indicated that Norb Novocin, owner of Estate Auctions, Inc. was unaware of the rarity of the find but seven days into the auction a fellow eBay member informed him of the bird type.
"On occasion we come across a item that has us stumped and with the amount of research we perform it's hard to believe, but sometimes it happens. I had a feeling there was something special about this piece and after I was notified of the bird type I did the research and my hunch was right. I had no idea what a great find this was and the condition is amazing considering it's age," states Norb Novocin, owner.
The Auerhahn, known as the Grossehahn in Germany, is the largest of the European grouses, the Auerhahn may stand 40 inches tall, have a wingspan of more than five feet and weigh 12 pounds.
