    National Industrial Conservation Movement Lot (Lot of 10) This lot features 10 posters printed for the National Industrial Conservation Movement. This movement was affiliated with the National Association of Manufacturers. These posters were motivational propaganda posters along the same lines as those which were printed in WWII to motivate workers and laborers. While very common in WWII these WWI versions are much rarer and more desirable. All posters in this lot measure 25"x 19." The lot includes; "We Are Vitally Interested," "Constructive Public Opinion," "We Have In America Every...," "The Best Form of Monopoly for...," "If Industry makes Life Worth Living...," "National Prosperity Depends on Industrial Peace," "Industry and Commercial Enterprise Is...," "The Success of this Business," "Don't Blame It All On The War," "America for Americans." This is a large lot which features multiple posters containing propaganda regarding business, industry, high prices and even monopolies. The posters ask workers not to blame all their troubles on the war and take responsibility for themselves. A wonderful view at politics during America's first world war. Do not miss these!

    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.
