    Description

    Cole Younger, Large Bold Signature written in pencil on a 4.25" x 3.25" leaf [tipped to a card], "Cole Younger St. Paul, Minn." Cole and his two younger brothers (Robert and James) were active off and on with Frank and Jesse James for several years, until the disastrous attempt to rob a bank at Northfield, Minnesota (September 7, 1876), following which the Youngers, all wounded, were captured, pleaded guilty, and were sentenced to life terms at Stillwater Penitentiary. This signature was most certainly written while he was serving out his life sentence. One of the most infamous and rare signatures of the Wild West era. In very fine 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.
