    Description

    Large Broadside, COMMISSIONER'S SALE OF LAND & NEGROES, 13" x 14.5", Campbellsville, Kentucky, April 2, 1860. A visually impressive testament to the power of America's "peculiar institution". The broadside reads in part:"...I will sell to the highest bidder, at the Court-House door...FOUR LIKELY NEGRO MEN & ONE WOMAN! Also 300 Acres of Land well improved, with A Large Brick Dwelling upon it...lying on the National road from Lexington to Nashville. The slaves will be sold on credit of four months, and the land on six and twelve months, equal payments...". Estate sales such as this one would have surely attracted itinerant slave traders eager to supply the insatiable demands of Deep South planters. Moderate foxing, several vertical folds and a central horizontal crease. Good condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
