    Very Rare Hancock's Veteran Corps, Civil War Silver Corps/ID Badge, inscribed "E. R. Brown/Co. F 72nd P. V./Co. K 3rd USVV", with an engraved border and maker marked, "Warner Philad" on the reverse. There is a cut out 2d Corps trefoil in the center that is heavily scroll engraved. This is backed with a brass disc with red enamel designating the 1st Div. 1 ¼", T-bar pinback, just some minor loss on the red enamel, otherwise perfect. Edward R. Brown enlisted in the 72d Penna. 'Baxter's Philadelphia Fire Zouaves' and mustered out Aug. 24, 1864. He was slightly wounded at Fair Oaks May 31, 1862, promptly returned to duty, and served with the regt. at Antietam, Fredericksburg and, most notably, at Gettysburg where the 72d was instrumental in the repulse of Pickett's charge. Remarkably upon mustering out of the 72d (he had been sick in the hospital since Sept. 1863) Brown enlisted in the 3rd U.S.V.V. Inf., serving until Feb. 1866. Accompanied by a complete set of records. A very rare badge identified to a great regiment.

    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.
