    Civil War Surgeon's Field Amputation Kit.
    The purple velvet lined mahogany case measures 3" x 5 1/2" x 15 3/4" with brass corners and a brass plate on the lid for possible presentation. The case contains a tourniquet, a large amputation saw, five knives in various sizes, a plier like tool likely used for cutting, a group of small needles and what looks to be a dental pick. Five of the instruments are marked "W.R. Goulding New York", and two are marked "Tiemann", both well known manufacturers in New York. The original key is present, and the locking mechanism is in working order. The condition of the instruments and case is in overall fine condition.

    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.
