Haldeman, signature on a typescript of statements made about Watergate; Watergate burglar James McCord's signature and an additional inscription and signature on a 2 page typescript of his March 1973 statement to Judge Sirica responding to the judge's questions regarding the break-in and noting that "...There was political pressure applied to the defendants to plead guilty and remain silent... Perjury occurred during the trial in matters highly material to the very structure, orientation, and impact of the government's case, and to the motivation and intent of the defendants..." together with a signature on a 3" x 5" card; Vice President, Spiro T. Agnew; Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox; Committee to Reelect the President Treasurer, Hugh W. Sloan, Jr.; Senate Watergate Committee member, Joseph M.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
