    Revolutionary War Manuscript Document listing military expenses for Connecticut, 1780-1785. One page, 12.5" x 8", [1785], on laid paper with some nicks along edges. Very good.

    More Information:

    The document is composed of two columns: expense items and expense totals. Expense items includes such items as "Notes given to the Army for Services in 1780"; "Notes given to purchase Horses"; "Notes issued for the Balance of the late Gov. Trumbulls A/c"; and more.


    Handwritten at a later date [ca. 1810] on verso is a note asking that newspaper printers publish the Connecticut document. In part: "Messieurs Printers be pleased to publish in your usefull gazette the following Anecdote to discover to your readers the great prudence and economy that reigned in the conduct of our ancestors, compared with the prodigality that exists amongst us at this day."

    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.
