The African Big Game Trophy Collection of Sheldon H. Weinstein

Auction Details

Please note this auction has a reserve bid on each lot.

Mr. Sheldon H. Weinstein, a life-long hunter from London, Ontario, dedicated 20 years to capturing the world’s most majestic and elusive animals. A life member of Safari Club International, he was also dedicated to the most ethical and responsible practices in hunting, wildlife conservation, and wildlife management.

His destinations included Africa, Iran, Mongolia, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Canada, and the United States. By the time he fired his last shot, Sheldon’s compilation was deemed one of the largest private, big game trophy collections in Canada, with a number of impressive world record book entries.

Sheldon’s trophies have been diligently maintained since his early death in 1992, assisted by the talented craftsmanship of two renowned taxidermy companies: Klineburger Enterprises (Washington State, USA) and Pine Ridge Taxidermists (Ontario, Canada). Some natural hair loss and small hide cracks have appeared over time, which happens to all big game trophies. Most are inconspicuous and may be expertly restored.

Landsborough Auctions is pleased to offer you, for the first time in the collection’s history (circa 1960-1980), a once in a lifetime opportunity to own some of its truly magnificent African specimens.
If anyone wishes to bid and needs assistance with the bidding and process, please feel free to contact us before noon on Friday January 10, 2020 and we will be glad to assist you.

American and foreign buyers are welcome. We would be more than willing to assist your carrier with any requirements they may need. Please note you are responsible for all permits, customs and duty charges that may be applicable.
