    Description

    Nicely Marked, Historic Haversack with Massachusetts History. This standard Federal issue haversack has seen genuine use but remains sound and presentable. The tarred cotton body is supple and has only a few minor splits that do not detract from its appeal. The body measures about 11" deep x 12" wide, with a 3" expandable gusset at the bottom. The closure strap is still attached (barely) to the flap as is the roller buckle. No interior bag remains. Clearly painted in large white letters, now subdued with age, on the back is "M. Montague./Co. G, 32dReg. MV." Twenty-seven-year-old Private Merrick Montague enlisted in October, 1862 and was discharged for disability in April, 1863. His records show that upon discharge he owed the government for his "knapsack, haversack, canteen, rubber blanket..." and other gear. A classic haversack with a great identification.

    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.
