    Two Silver 3rd Corps Badges. One unquestionably Civil War period, commercially produced as seen in many period newspaper ads. 1 ¼" X 1 5/8" sheet silver diamond folded over a heavier silver back with T-bar pin. Embossed in deep relief, "3D Corps Hooker's Old Division Army of the Potomac". Near perfect, just one minor wrinkle at the top. The other a 1" X 1 5/16" silver diamond engraved in script, "16/Hooker's Old Division/11 with decorative engraved. Brass safety pin type back and possibly post war but certainly gives every appearance of being period with the exception of the pin. Perfect condition. Two very nice badges.

    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.
