    President Warren G. Harding and Cabinet Photograph Signed by All 12. 14" x 17" by Edmonston of Washington, D.C., 1921. Warren G. Harding (1865-1923), the 29th President of the United States, was hugely popular when he took office but various scandals quickly tarnished his reputation. This official White House photograph (which includes the signatures of three once-and-future U.S. Presidents) shows a scowling Harding with all the members of his original cabinet: (clockwise from left) Secretary of the Treasury Andrew Mellon, Attorney General Harry M. Daugherty, Secretary of the Navy Edwin Denby, Secretary of Labor James J. Davis, Secretary of Agriculture Henry C. Wallace, Vice President Calvin Coolidge, Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover, Secretary of the Interior Albert Fall, Postmaster General Will H. Hays (later to found the Hollywood "Hays Code"), Secretary of War John W. Weeks, and Secretary of State Charles Evans Hughes. This rare presidential item is in very good condition with a small corner chip at bottom right and some minor soiling and staining in the borders; the image is sharp and the signatures have faded ever so slightly after the passage of 86 years.

    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.
