    1937-1938 Hughes Court

    Charles E. Hughes Supreme Court Photo Signed by Eight Justices. 12" x 11.25". A Harris & Ewing studio portrait of the court posed in their robes and signed in the wide bottom margin: George Sutherland, James C. McReynolds, Charles E. Hughes, Louis D. Brandeis, Pierce Butler, Harlan F. Stone, Owen J. Roberts, and Hugo L. Black. Justice Benjamin Cardozo is also pictured, but does not sign. Cardozo suffered a heart attack in late 1937, and a few months later, a stroke. He was inactive through much of the 1937-1938 Supreme Court session; and passed away on July 9, 1938.

    Condition: Slight silvering to the albumen, and a few scuff marks to the surface. The Brandeis and Roberts signatures have faded a bit, and there is a chip missing at top right well away from the image. Ideal for framing.

    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.
