    September 11, 1928 memorandum to Mr. Taylor, no letterhead other than "New York, September 11, 1928" appearing at the upper right corner of the memorandum, docketed to the firm of Roosevelt & O'Connor. FDR writes: "Memo. for Mr. Taylor:/ In accordance with letter from Mr. Kibbe of September 7th, please send today check for $1,000.00 to Bank of Manchester for account of Georgia Warm Springs Foundation–Winter Pool Account. And next Monday, September 17th, another check for $1,000.00./ F.D. Roosevelt." A nice document with a rare form of FDR's signature, "F.D. Roosevelt," and an uncommon reference to The Georgia Warm Springs Foundation which FDR founded to combat polio.

    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.
