    -Creases and notations, else very good.

    This official naval document, containing transfer orders, is addressed to I. E. Stolberg, Bureau of Steam Engineering. Mr. Stolberg is transferred to Hampton Roads, Virginia, to assist in the electrical fitting out of the U.S.S. Nevada, later badly damaged in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The order is stamped at the bottom "Franklin D. Roosevelt," but just to the left of the stamp the Assistant Secretary of the Navy signs "FDR" in his own hand. The document has several endorsements, and contains a separate second page containing several other official naval endorsements, including two signed by then Captain William S. Sims, skipper of the U.S.S. Nevada.

    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.
