    Description

    Charles Guiteau: Three Letters Sent to Him in Prison, Together with Six Postcards and Envelopes Addressed to Him. The letters, one 3 pages, two basically asking if he is prepared as he faces death to own up to what he has done and embrace God's mercy: "...the blood of the Lamb of God (has the power) to save Even You-Go to Him-Now-'May God have Mercy on your soul,'" etc.

    A great hate letter to the jailer was sent to accompany a 3-cent coin which the writer "could not pass" and so is bestowing on Guiteau. "I only wish that I could have been on the jury. I would have had his scalp long before this and that third class shister [sic] lawyer also for trying to defend such a brute as he Guiteau is, and I hope he will have his swing in May for if ever a villain ought to swing...."

    Amazing artifacts such as we have never encountered before!

    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.
