    Confederate Staff Officer's Button, CS36A1 (Albert), H. T. & B. Manchester. Button stitched to a celluloid card, which is stitched to a piece of paper bearing the following ink script history, "Presented to Mr. Geo. Dantz by Daniel A. Clemmans Jr. a rebel button taken from a rebel Officer's coat at the battle (sic) of Chickamauga Ga. in the first days fight Sep 19th 1863 in a Strip of Woods laying behind a large rock while the 79 Penn. Vet. Vol. Ware (sic) forming in line of battle." Button perfect, untouched with great patina. The presentation probably circa 1890. Daniel A. Clemmans enlisted in the 79th Penna. Inf. on July 13, 1863 and was discharged for disability on September 4, 1864. Scarce button with a great 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.
