    ALS BY THREE CHIEF JUSTICES WHILE IN OFFICE. Consisting of: 1) 1857 note in response to a request from his autograph (even then!) from Roger B. Taney (the year of the Dredd Scott Decision); 2) 1867 letter by Salmon P. Chase (seems to have political/ military content, but we can’t read his handwriting!); 3) 2-page 1886 letter by M.R. Waite, about the American Civics Bureau. A very nice grouping, 4 x 6 ½" to 5 ½ x 8 ½" in size. LOA from Spence/Grad PSA DNA.

    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.
