    George Armstrong Custer: Railroad Pass Inscribed to Custer and Wife. During the post-Civil War period, Custer engaged in military operations against Native Americans, notably the Cheyenne and Sioux. He operated out of Forts Riley and Abraham Lincoln in Kansas. The Kansas Pacific Railway issued this 3.5" x 2.5" pass to "Genl. G. A. Custer and Wife" for the year 1870. It incorporates the state seals of Kansas and Colorado and was signed by A. Anderson, the General Superintendent of the line. The reverse was updated with the inscription: "Good until Jan. 6th/71. Geo. Noble Supt." This evocative piece was actually handled by Custer and is in excellent condition.

    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.
