In part: "I am much surprised and disturbed to learn to day, quite directly, that you do not intent to be in your seat at the next Congress... I do not understand that you are sick of the business but that is not a sufficient reason for your abandoning the post when you can be so useful to the country... I have expected to see you daily in regards to some Pennsylvania matters that are dangling still..." Signed in full, "Grover Cleveland."

    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.
