This historic sale featured unprecedented prices for a diverse array of Western Americana, such as the 1963 Pontiac Bonneville ($254,500), the Nellybelle jeep ($116,500), a variety of hats and boots, and costumes made by Nudie the Rodeo Tailor.

Gil, the doormanLinda Kohn and Joseph Sherwood of High Noon Western Americana added: “We were thrilled that the collection has found its way into homes of Roy and Dale fans around the world insuring that their legacy continues. The highlight of the week was the saleroom’s spontaneous round of “Happy Trails” sung at the conclusion of the auction.”
