Measuring approximately 7.5" x 7". Accompanying the chevrons is a 3.5" x 2.25" card captioned, in ink: "Sergeant Stripes worn on the coat sleeves of Sergt. George S. Gibson Co. F. 1st Mass. Hvy. Art. Civil War 1861-1865". George Gibson enlisted on August 4, 1862 as a private. He mustered into "F" Company of the Massachusetts 1st Heavy Artillery.

    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.
