    George Washington Autograph Docket on Christmas Beer Receipt. One page, 6.25" x 2.75", December 22, 1772. The beer was ordered and delivered on the same day. Washington has written three lines on verso docketing this receipt: "Wales N. 82/ £8.010/ 22nd Decr [?] 1772". Following this is a handwritten block letter "W", very possibly written by Colonel Washington. Washington's holograph is tightly trimmed and bears dampstaining. Near very good.

    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.
