An extraordinary framed autograph and photograph set of George Armstrong Custer. He signs boldly "G.A. Custer Brig. Genl. Comd. Re." The photograph of Custer in uniform is by Jose Mora(K-150), trimmed to image with light dampstains to the background, otherwise crisp and excellent in detail to Custer's features and uniform. The photo was taken in March 1876, only three months before the Battle of Little Big Horn. One of the rarest of Custer photographs.

    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.
