    Early photograph of Rutherford and Lucy Hayes signed

    Rutherford B. Hayes Signed Cabinet Card photograph of the couple posed side-by-side, 4" x 6.25" (sight). In Hayes' hand at bottom: "Rutherford B. & Lucy W Hayes 1852". With a Grob, Fremont, Ohio, photographic stamp. The couple was recently married, and the formal portrait was likely one of their first as man and wife. Lucy sits demurely on his left side, his arm carefully placed behind her. The cabinet card is matted beneath a reproduction of a portrait of Lucy Hayes and framed to an overall size of 7" x 16.25". Together with a small spoon engraved "PH", obtained by our consignor at the same time as the photograph. The spoon is said to have belonged to Lucy Hayes, although we are not able to present any provenance to corroborate.

    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.
