    More Information:

    Texas' new constitution was finished two months prior to this printing and given to the U.S. Congress on November 10, 1845, making this printed copy from the Democratic Expositor likely the earliest view the congressmen had of the constitution. Congress accepted Texas into the Union on December 29, 1845.

    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.
