    Description

    Grover Cleveland: ALS as President Discussing Fishing Gear. Autographed Letter Signed, Washington, D.C., January 3, 1896, 3pp on bifolium Executive Mansion stationery, to Frederick Spark of Philadelphia, together with transmittal envelope addressed in Cleveland's hand. In part: "... two fishing rods... have broken down... I have just directed my man Gray Gabler to send them to you for repair... When you receive them will you please do whatever is necessary to put them in complete condition and send them to 'S. B. Waight Buzzard's Bay Mass'. Could you also get two first rate sound bamboo poles and finish them for me... I already owe you something for the large floats you made for me last summer..." Slight bleeding to signature, but generally a fine example written as President with good content.

    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.
