    ROBERT E. LEE'S CONFEDERATE MONEY GIVEN PROVENANCE BY FITZHUGH LEE. Two Confederate $50 bills are accompanied by a gray envelope, 5.25" x 3.5", the face of which is boldly inscribed in Fitzhugh Lee's hand as follows: "Confederate money in General Lee's pocket at the Surrender at Appomattox Virginia - April 1865." The envelope and one note are in fine condition, while the second note is in poor condition with heavy soiling and substantial areas of loss. Condition, however, is moot considering just what these notes are and where they have been. Here is a rare opportunity to acquire a personal memento of General Lee that any museum would gladly display.

    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.
