    Description

    Non Regulation Canvas Haversack Used by a Maine Infantryman. Typical of many state-issued haversacks, this simply-made example is manufactured from unpainted white canvas and measures about 11" x 11". The top flap is closed by one eagle "I" button and the body was made without any lining. Overall, the canvas has a pleasing light brown patina and is very sound. The strap is boldly stenciled "BENJ. LIBBY,/WARREN, Me./Co.B.24th, Me. Regt." Private Libby enlisted in this nine-month regiment in October, 1862 and mustered out in August, 1863. The unit served in New Orleans and participated in the siege of Port Hudson, La. A nice example of an historic piece of equipment.

    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.
