    Description

    Typed Letter Signed by James Cagney. One page, 7.25" x 10.5", on his Verney Farm letterhead, Stanfordville, New York, September 10, 1979. Academy Award-winner Jimmy Cagney sends a newsy letter to his friend Ann Ford. In part: "We are now starting a script on my early days in New York. It is merely a device to keep me occupied." Signed "Jim" in black felt-tip ink. Occasional light soiling; ring from a drinking glass at upper third. Handwritten notations by Ann Ford at upper third. 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.
