    Rare Memo Regarding an 1881 Note Owed by Frank or Tom McLaury. The writer, Charles Roberts, had apparently left a McLaury note with the Pima County Bank in the hopes that they could assist with collection. Inasmuch as the note is dated August 12 and both McLaurys were killed in the October 26 O.K. Corral gunfight, there is a good chance the debt was never collected. The large blue check mark indicates that the bank had processed the request, and a notation in the lower left corner states that the bank responded to Roberts on August 23. The note, measuring 4.875" x 4.25" is in excellent condition and has been nicely custom framed.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
