    "The author, himself a fugitive, earlier served as a peace officer in several towns of the West. He tells a great deal about such gunmen as Billy the Kid and Jim Courtright. He was city marshal of Las Vegas, New Mexico, when the mob tried to take Dave Rudabaugh from the train while Dave and the Kid were prisoners of Pat Garrett. He refers to the Kid as the 'notorious Mexican outlaw.' He tells about running Wyatt Earp and Mysterious Dave Mathers out of Mobeetie for trying to play the old gold-brick game there, and about his later close association with Jim Courtright" (Adams, Six-Guns).

    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.
