    74th New York Infantry Colt Pocket Model Navy. This rare regimental marked Colt Hartford made pistol is inscribed with "Co. D, 74th NY" on the butt, as well as "5th" Corps inscribed behind the hammer. It includes all matching serial #204945 and engraved battle scenes on the cylinder. This is an excellent, well-used weapon with completely original grips and strong main spring. The 74th New York fought in all the battles of The Army of the Potomac, known as Sickles' "Excelsior Brigade". A hard fighting unit, their commanding officer, General Barry, was killed at Chancellorsville. They lost 143 men at Williamsburg and another 89 men during the Battle of Gettysburg. This gun saw a lot of action!

    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.
