    U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Collection 1789-1986. An fine group of autographs related to the men who have held this lofty position - the head of the judicial branch of our government and highest judicial officer in the country. Includes the following: John Jay (DS, also signed by Robert Morris); Oliver Ellsworth (2 ADsS, AN); Roger Brooke Taney (ADS); Salmon Portland Chase (partial DS, ALS); Morrison Remick Waite (ALS); Melville Weston Fuller (TLS); Edward Douglass White (TLS); Charles Evans Hughes (TLS); Harlan Fiske Stone (TLS); Frederick Moore Vinson (TLS); Earl Warren (3 TLsS, Signature); Warren Earl Burger (Signed bio w/ photo). This would make an excellent start or a fine addition to any collection of Chief Justices. Some include envelopes of transmittal; condition is generally very good to fine.

    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.
