    ULYSSES S. GRANT AUTOGRAPHED CARTE DE VISITE CIRCA 1864. Signed "U. S. Grant, Lt. Gen." on the front in the lower margin, 2.5" x 4". This is a very nice albumen three-quarter length studio shot image by F. Gutekunst of Philadelphia. Grant was appointed to the rank of lieutenant general in January 1864 and held that rank until 1866. Judging from Grant's appearance, the likely date of this photograph is 1864.

    Gutekunst was an American photographer of Philadelphia (1831-1917). He was a favored photographer by the East Coast elite and even celebrities like the shy Walt Witman and Civil War Hero General U. S. Grant, who later became President of the United States, had their picture taken by him.

    Condition: Fine-very 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.
