    Confederate Triple-Armed 1/6th Plate Tintype. Staring straight into the camera, this Johnny Reb is ready for war whether fighting the enemy from a line of battle or close-up. He holds a savage clip-point bowie knife and what appears to be a .69 caliber Model 1842 musket with bayonet fixed. His belt rig carries a holstered revolver and is secured by two roller buckles. The buttons on the subject's tight gray shell jacket appear to be three-piece staff buttons and have been painted gold by the photographer. The inside of the case behind the image carries two names in pencil: J.B. Stancill and A.B. Vaughn. Excellent surfaces for a tintype, Confederate or otherwise. Wear to the leatherette case as expected.

    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.
