    Blueprints for the Lincoln Tomb. One blueprint page, 35" x 23", November 20, 1929, for "repairing, restoring, reconstructing Lincoln Tomb, Oak Ridge Cemetery, Springfield, Illinois." Lincoln's tomb was originally finished in 1874, nine years after his assassination. Still, his body was moved many times and for many reasons: for fear of theft, during tomb restoration programs, and at the request of Robert Todd Lincoln. The tomb was acquired in 1895 by the State of Illinois. In 1901, Lincoln's body was placed in its final resting place, a cement vault in the tomb. This blueprint represents the plans for the final reconstruction of the interior of the tomb, which was done from 1930-1931. Since then, the tomb has been administered by the State of Illinois and has undergone little change. Today, the president, his wife, and three of their four sons rest there. Near very good.

    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.
