A leading name in the field of celebrity memorabilia and historical documents, Antiquities International has been in operation for over 30 years. Antiquities was founded in Arizona by Toby Stoffa originally as a 10,000 square foot two level gallery, specializing in architectural antiques, country collectibles, art glass and things of beauty from the past. Restored vintage jukeboxes, Coca Cola machines, and rock ‘n roll treasures soon followed. Now located in Las Vegas, the business has grown into an internationally active gallery with wonderfully framed displays of authentic autographs in all areas of collecting along with those “Happy Days” items of the past.
Antiquities was hand chosen by the owners of the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada for occupancy when America’s richest mall opened in 1992. Antiquities has been a “go-to” destination in the Forum Shops ever since.
We offer a diverse range of collectibles and memorabilia from movies, historical events, and music, as well as novelty gifts such as art prints and framed gold records. Autographs are displayed in museum-quality presentations, providing a distinctive, high-class appearance.
Antiquities International is also active in the community. The business supports several organizations that perform charitable work, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the March of Dimes, and the Children’s Cancer Society.
Antiquities is a proud member of the Better Business Bureau, the Las Vegas Chamber Of Commerce and The Manuscript Society.

President Abraham Lincoln signed original prisoner release order, wherein the 16th President writes and signs all in his own hand: “This man is pardoned and hereby ordered to be discharged from the service. A. Lincoln April 7, 1864.” The pardon was part of and a continuation of his proclamation of amnesty and reconstruction that allowed persons “in rebellion”, primarily Confederate officers, with certain exceptions, to swear to support and defend the Constitution and thus be granted full pardon. Lee would surrender April 9, 1865 and Lincoln, knowing the Civil war was soon to be over, began releasing confederate soldiers. It was an impressive act of unification for the country. This was hand written and signed by America’s 16th President. The note is 4-3/4″ wide x 4″ tall.

Model 26 Jacobs, the rarest and one of the most collectible beverage machines ever made, and in limited quantity, of the vintage Coca Cola Machines. The Model 26 was the first of the 4 Jacobs machines, and the very earliest ones had the lower door panel split….which is this one! Made by the F. L. Jacobs Company of Indianapolis in the early 1930s, the arched top and side coin mechanism distinguishes the Jacobs from all the other machines. Even Vendo’s later copy could not match the class and style of this one. This also has the original brass i.d. plate saying Jacob’s Mfg. Co. Circular drum interior holds small bottles, 6-1/2 oz, 8 oz, pony beer. Beautiful fully refrigerated and operating machine.
