    Douglas A. MacArthur Photograph Signed "Best Wishes! Douglas MacArthur ". Matte finish black and white photographic print, 8" x 10". Written in another hand on the verso, "from General Douglas MacArthur to Vernon E. Rickard" and the date, "10-31-51". Slight weakness to the signature, else fine.

    More Information:

    In January 1951, General Douglas MacArthur was busy as commander of the United Nations forces in Korea. Just seven months earlier, the North Koreans attacked Seoul. Four months after MacArthur's strategic success at Inchon, the general met with his senior commanders at the old walled city of Suwan on January 28, 1951. A few months later, in April 1951, President Harry Truman had fired General MacArthur over a disagreement on how to combat the Chinese.

    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.
