    Woman's Suffrage: Marietta Stow Signed Cabinet Card. 4.25" x 6.5" with a Morse, San Francisco studio mark. Marietta Stow was an early champion of equal rights for women. She pushed the conventional boundaries by running for governor of California and also running for Vice President of the United States as the Equal Rights Party candidate in the 1884 election. It was in this last capacity that she signed, actually double signed this cabinet card. Directly under her portrait she has written "Marietta L. Stow,/ 1884 Equal Rights Candidate/ for Vice President of the/ United States." In red ink, and presumably in her hand is written "Residence - 1921 Sacramento St. San Francisco Cal." and the date "May 1, 1885". On the verso she's written "Complements of/ Marietta L. Stow./ San Francisco, Cal./ May 1-85". A fantastic image from one of the lesser known but important leaders in the fight for equal rights for women. Some light toning to image and with mounting remnants on the verso, else in excellent condition.

    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.
