    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Autograph Note Signed to His Son.
    -No date. No place. One page, 5.5" x 9".
    -To: His son, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr.
    -With some soiling and toning, ragged left margin, and tape remnants at the top corners, else very good.

    In FDR's own hand in its entirety, an autograph note signed to his son and namesake, FDR, Jr. in black fountain pen: "For Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr. with a great deal of love from his Old Man./ Franklin D. Roosevelt". A deeply personal note that one would surmise accompanied a gift on some long forgotten special occasion. Though many more important FDR documents are extant, the words he penned in more intimate moments are fewer in number and should be treasured all the more.

    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.
