    Civil War Cartes de Visite: Very Nice Grouping as Assembled by Edward Gross Tuteins. Tuteins enlisted in the 1st Massachusetts Inf. on 5/22/61 as a sergeant, mustering out 6/3/64. On 12/14/64 he was commissioned captain in the 61st Mass. Vol. Inf., mustering out 7/16/65. The album contained 32 military images with about a third of them signed / ID'd and doubtless many others that can be identified from existing photographs archives of regimental histories. Most of the ID'd images are from the 1st and 61st Mass. A number of exceptional images of officer's with swords, unusual headgear etc. About 20% of the images exhibit noteworthy fading, with the balance being excellent. Also included are nine civilian images, the album, a large State of Massachusetts post war commission for Tuteins in the Mass. Militia and a large and very impressive membership certificate for Tuteins in the third Army Corps Union. Very nice grouping.

    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.
