    CASED PAIR OF SIXTH PLATE TINTYPES SHOWING ARMED FEDERALS. most likely a father-son team from the upper Midwest. One image is of a bearded man in early middle age bearing a distinct resemblance to the hardened youth in the second image. Both men pose with imported .54 caliber Lorenz rifled muskets, with the older soldier also holding what appears to be a standard non-commissioned officer's sword. Belt rigs, both waist and shoulder, are worn along with loose fitting sack coats. These soldiers hardly convey the fresh and polished look of raw Federal recruits. Rather, they have the lean, predatory look of seasoned veterans who have campaigned hard. Housed in a molded gutta-percha case having patriotic motifs on the lid, most notably a central eagle and flag.

    Some haloing, a few spots of corrosion to one mat. Overall very fine.

    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.
