Having held over 500 artifact auctions, Premiere is the country’s largest and safest venue for buying and selling relics from coast-to-coast. The Premiere staff has decades of experience in the world of artifact collecting, and is well known and highly respected in the collecting community. We are dedicated to authenticity, and strive to provide our customers with the highest level of customer service.

Bennett’s Authentication Services, in addition to the books Jim Bennett has authored on authenticating, have helped thousands of collectors educate themselves on how to spot genuine authentic artifacts and avoid reproductions.

Premiere Auctions’ Ashland, Ohio auction center and facility offers auction-goers a comfortable auction venue for bidding in-person. For our customers around the country who cannot attend our auctions live –  ALL Premiere auctions are open for online live computer bidding through Proxibid.
