Some blades with minor scuffs, but nothing stands out apart from some rubbing when blades were opened and closed. Boxes with dings, light staining including mars to edges. Some boxes might not be original to the knife in them. Some pamphlets with wear and stains. Some aftermarket stickers and writing present to boxes.

    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.
