    CSA powder horn

    J. H. Waters, 1863 Texas Volunteers Powder Horn. Finely etched with an eagle, wings outstretched. The shield on the eagle's breast has a single star. Above the eagle is "E Pluribus Unum", a motto widely used by the Confederates. To each side of the eagle is a cannon and below is a drum. Also below is a riband with "Texas Volunteers 1863". The name, J. H. Waters, is also etched below the eagle.

    Wooden cap and copper nails, 11.5" long. At the pouring end, a paper tag is still attached, that reads, "From Francis Bannerman, Dealer in Military Goods, 579 Broadway, New York".

    Some insect damage to the horn, else near fine.

    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.
