    Union General John Pope Autograph Letters (Two) Signed and Cartes de Visite (Two). The three-page ALS is signed twice "John Pope" and dated March 21, 1863, on letterhead reading, "Head-Quarters, Department of the Northwest" and addressed to Wisconsin's Governor E. Salomon regarding sending three doctors "to Genl. Grant's Army." In the two-page ALS (signed "John Pope" and dated November 13, 1868), the general writes highly of Colonel C. B. Atchison to former Union General Irvin McDowell. Both letters are written in dark ink. The two CDVs contain imprints on the reverse (E. Anthony published one from a Brady negative; W. H. Sherman of Milwaukee photographed the other). In one, the bearded general strikes a Napoleonic pose in uniform; the other is a head-and-shoulder portrait in uniform. Toned with only minor stains.

    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.
