    More Information:

    After Texas declared its independence from Mexico in March 1836, Burnet was elected ad interim president by delegates at the Convention of 1836. He served in this capacity until Sam Houston was elected president in October 1836. Later, Burnet was chosen as vice president under President Mirabeau B. Lamar, serving from 1838 through 1841. While vice president, he often served as acting secretary of state and as acting president. Often out of step with the Texas public and antagonistic towards Sam Houston, he lost an 1841 bid for the presidency to Houston.

    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.
