 Due to the death of my husband C.J. “Mick” Doxtater, I have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Auction here on the farm. I would like to take this opportunity to invite each of you to my Auction and thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Very best regards,

Harriet Doxtater

TERMS: Cash or good check day of Auction. Master Card or VISA with 3% service fee. We subscribe to Pay-Tec, (A NATIONAL CHECK COLLECTIONS COMPANY)

NOTE: Mick was a lifelong Grant area resident for nearly 80 years.  He was a farmer and operated C.J. Doxtater Excavating for many years. Mick was well known in the area for his skill at operating heavy equipment and his love of old farm machinery which is evident in the Gaar-Scott steam traction engine and thrashing machines. Most of the equipment is ready to go to work for you whether you are in the excavating business or need equipment on the farm.

The Chevy pickup is like new with only 2,000 one owner miles! The truck camper has always been housed in the shed as has the threshing machines and grain binder. This will be a most interesting Auction to attend. Off street parking and loader available day of Auction and of course we will have port-a-jons, lunch wagon and wash-up station for your convenience. Make plans to be on Spruce Ave. just east of Grant on Sat. Sept. 26 @ 10:00AM for the start of this large Public Auction.

NOTE: Special Inspection and with early registration available Friday, Sept. 25th Noon till 6:00PM
