    Description

    1960 YANKEE 14K CHARM. As an institution popularized in the post-war era, charms have been ordered to supplement the annual requisition of standard press pins. They were intended for presentation to deserving ladies of the media and wives of entitled executives. These charms have usually been produced in the simple likeness (in design, material, and scale) to their masculine counterparts. For the 1960 World Series, the Yankees routinely dispensed their regular pins and charms both of which were crafted as the usual "gold-filled." For very exclusive recipients, however, they had a scant few fashioned in pure 14K gold, one of which is presented here. Some of these naturally found their way to bracelets and necklaces. This one didn’t. It is tarnish-free and the image of Casey, as well as the sensitive points of the crown, are flawless. Remotely, the only detectable note in this one is a short, microscopic crack in the enamel, probably induced when it was made. In most circles, it would still be readily accepted as Near Mint.

    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.
