Description
Lot #615 - This is a re-creation of one of the stage coaches Ben Holladay used for the Overland Trail Stage Route and were built by the Abbot-Downing Company in Concord, New Hampshire. At the cost of $1,050 each, these 1 Ton "Concord Coaches" were the finest road vehicle of its time--a supreme achievement of American stagecoach building. Without a doubt, it was the finest coach the world has ever known. In 1861, Mark Twain and his brother traveled West by overland stagecoach. In "Roughing It", Twain described the coach as "a cradle on wheels," as it rocked on its thorough braces instead of bouncing on steel springs. They rode "a top of the flying coach, dangled our legs over the side and leveled an outlook over the world wide carpet about us for things new and strange to gaze at. It thrills me to think of the life and the wide sense of freedom on those fine overland mornings!" The fine touch for the Concord Coach was its paint job. There were never any two exactly alike. The coaches were drawn by some of the finest and swiftest horses and they were able to travel at about 15 miles per hour. **SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY**
