    John D. Rockefeller and Henry Flagler Document Signed. Signed: J.D. Rockefeller and HM Flagler, one page, 15.5" x 7.75", New York, May 11, 1886. A fine example with strong, clean signature of each; dated just a year before the courts broke up the Standard Oil monopoly. Signed by Rockefeller as President and Flagler as Secretary, as well as Henry Brewster. Flagler was known independently as one of the great early Florida real estate developers, while Brewster was one of the original incorporators of Standard Oil. It is made out to Charles E. Bushnell, himself an important figure in Standard Oil history. A scarce 100 share certificate, printed in brown, black, and white, rather than the typical green. 100 shares were worth roughly $10,000, a substantial sum in 1886. In very fine condition; usual fold lines present; includes original stub; small cancellation stamp as is typical.

    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.
