    John King Fisher: Signed Arrest Warrant, 1884 Partially printed document signed "King Fisher" as Deputy of Uvalde County, 2pp., 6.75" x 8.5", dated February 23, 1884, an arrest warrant for one B.F. Wilson. Sheriff J.B . Boatright has engrossed the Sheriff's Return portion of the document giving an account of the arrest. Warmly toned, with a blind embossed seal of Uvalde County. In near fine condition, this document boasts the most desirable variant signature by Fisher. A notorious gunslinger John King Fisher (1854-1884) was a cowboy, horse thief, cattle rustler, dandy, Mexican border raider, and a cold-blooded killer. He would meet his grisly end less than three weeks later, after being shot an unlucky 13 times in a gunfight. Apparently, he was unable to fire off a single shot in his defense.

    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.
