    Near Mint U.S. M1884 .45-70 Rifle with the Original Bayonet and Scabbard, #493333. Really an exceptional example, with crisp stock cartouche placing the date of manufacture at 1890. Gun retains 95% of the original bright blue with just one small "streak" of loss on the barrel just forward of the receiver. Gun also retains 99% of the original bright case colors. Wood near perfect with just a few minor dents and an old thin coat of varnish. mechanically perfect, mint bore. Bayonet and scabbard also about mint, the frog with U.S. rosette and marked Rock Island Arsenal 1903. The leather sling is excellent but possibly a bit later. Very nice gun.

    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.
