The Republic of Texas is drawn with the boundary claims of the Texas Congress of 1836, and includes portions of present day New Mexico, Colorado, Oklahoma and Wyoming. The Rio Grande runs along the Southern and Western boundaries. An important map, showing U.S. intentions to include all of the Republics land claims against Mexico. A smaller format of this map recently sold at Sotheby's for $6,250.

    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.
