Highly figured curly maple stock with moulded cheeckpiece with inlaid eight pointed silver star. Magnificent four piece patchbox, clearly reminiscent of the York school, with six piercings and elaborate delicate engraving. Configured with slender wood strip between the side plates and the lid. Brass pin escutcheons each fastened with two tiny screws. Absolutely perfect condition and a really beautiful little rifle.

    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.
