    Anson Jones signed land grant, during the last months of the Republic

    Anson Jones Signed Republic of Texas Land Grant, 642, to "John Dickinson, assignee of Charles Bowman" for land in Montgomery County. One page on vellum, oblong folio, 15" x 12.75", "City of Austin", September 15, 1845. With embossed seal of the General Land Office of the Republic present but detached. Co-signed by Thomas William Ward as Commissioner. Docketing on verso indicates that this grant would not be filed until the following year, in March 1846. Document has wrinkling and folds typical of vellum, with dampstaining at center, and two tiny holes affecting a single word; all well away from Jones large signature.

    Anson Jones (1798 1858) served as the last president of the Republic of Texas. Jones would declare "The Republic of Texas is no more" five months later in a formal ceremony bringing Texas formally into the United States. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    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.
