    Coahuila and Texas Horse Brand Poster. Manuscript, one page, 7.75" x 11.75", "Villa de Salinas Vittoria", Nov. 6, 1827. Reading in part: "Diagram which describes the number of mustangs which in accordance to the law have been brought to Commissioned Agent of this district and are as follow..." Listed beneath are the descriptions of three horses with the brands depicted in the left margin. It was customary for stray horses and cattle to be kept in a public corral. Ranchers, upon arrival in town, could view a poster such as this, which was placed in the public square, to see if they had a stray to recover from the public corral, which customarily was located some distance from town.

    Exceptionally fine condition, with a creamy color and three small puncture holes where it would have been nailed to a post or wall. Signed "Jose Brijido Flores", adding an elaborate rubric. From the Taking of Texas Collection.

    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.
