    Philip H. Sheridan Autograph Letter Signed To William T. Sherman Three pages, 5" x 6.5", Chicago, June 3, 1881. He signs himself "P.H. Sheridan." The letter reads, "My dear general Sherman: The saddle did not belong to anyone & I am unable to say if any person ever rode on it. Tompkins the chief Q. master here found it at Leavenworth or some place down in the Dept. of Missouri. It cost nothing therefore there is nothing to pay. He gave it to me, I gave it to you, & I am glad you gave it to Ben Holliday." Sheridan was a decorated and battle-proven general for the Union during the Civil War. This letter with the association between two legendary generals makes this piece very desirable.
    The letter is in very fine condition; usual folds are present; slight soiling on edges; the letter has been mounted to a folder. Accompanying this letter is an engraving of Sheridan, perfect for display. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.

    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.
