    C. 1815 American Eaglehead Artillery Officer's Saber. Plain 28", 1 1/2" wide curved blade with generally smooth gray patina and just some scattered salt and peppering and staining. The hilt utilizes the "Bolton/Upson" eaglehead, fluted knucklebow which splits at the base forming two thin scalloped branches along with a scalloped central section under the grip, the three terminating in a clamshell quillon. One very minor bend on one of the outboard branches, minor, with the hilt retaining 80% of the original gilt. Fluted ivory grip about perfect with nice mellow patina, 3/8" brass ferrule at the base. There is no scabbard. Very attractive eaglehead from this earlier period in very desirable form.

    From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.

    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.
