    Green Wool Cross-Stitched, Pink Silk-Lined 2 3/8" Diameter Civil War Needle Cushion. Cross stitched in red wool on the covers "S. C. Wright Co. C 29th Mas. Vol." Some minor moth damage but very good. Samuel Cole Wright had a remarkable history. He enlisted in the regiment on May 18, 1861, re-enlisted Jan. 1, 1864 and was discharged for wounds Feb. 3, 1865, having been wounded at White Oak Swamp, Antietam, Bethesda Church, and finally Petersburg. Wright was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for action at Antietam. Wonderful little item loaded with history.

    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.
