John Lebkicker enlisted on September 5, 1861 and mustered into B Company of the 79th Pennsylvania. He mustered out on July 12, 1865, in Washington, D.C. The lot includes: (1) 1850 Foot Officers' sword, 30.5" blade etched with floral and patriotic designs and bearing a Schulyer, Hartley & Graham retailer's mark. Lacks scabbard. Most of the gilt is absent from the hilt and it's a bit loose on the blade, otherwise good condition. (2) His lightly tooled leather bag measures about 11" x 8", and features a brass closure system. The bag exhibits honest wear from use and though lacking the leather carrying strap, is in generally very good condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
