    Description

    George Armstrong Custer: Temporary Invitation to the Army & Navy Club of New York. Partially printed, 5.5" x 3.5". Undated invitation issued to Custer at the request of a fellow general to enjoy the privileges of the New York Army & Navy Club for a period of two weeks. Complete with the transmittal envelope addressed "Gen. Geo A. Custer/ U.S. Army/ Brunswick". The ink has smeared a bit on the invitation and the envelope is a bit soiled, and both have mounting remnants and a modern printed return mailing label bearing the name "Col. Chas. A. Custer (Ret)" presumably a relative on the verso, otherwise they are in very good 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.
