    George A. Custer: Reunion and Monument Badges.
    Nice pair of badges celebrating General Custer. The first is a two-piece bronze badge with original pin back, depicting a pair of crossed sabers over a laurel wreath surmounted by a riband reading "Canandaigua, N.Y." Beneath the crossed sabers is the date "Aug. 21.22, 1907". Suspended from the pin is a 1½" diameter medallion depicting a bust of General Custer in military attire with his long, curly, flowing hair and his famous wide brim campaign hat, and reads "First reunion Gen'l Geo. A Custer's command 1861-1865". The reverse is marked "The Whitehead & Hoag Co. Newark, N.J." These original Custer medals are most difficult to obtain and rarely find their way to the open market. The second piece is an 1 3/4" celluloid button with a yellow ribbon from the unveiling of the Custer monument in Monroe, Michigan. Another equally scarce piece. Both in fine condition. From The Collection Of Don Limpert.

    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.
