    Hawaii Territory Document Collection consisting of approximately 17 documents or groups of documents ranging in date from the 1870s to 1962. Various deeds, legal documents, and receipts, the earlier of which are in the Hawaiian language. There are (likely) secretarial signatures of Kamehameha III and Kamehameha V. One group of documents includes an interesting "Certificate of Enrollment" of James Joseph Lincoln as a sergeant in the "Hawaii Rifles, 2nd regiment, 1st battalion, company 3" dated November 15, 1942. The Hawaii Rifles were a cavalry militia on the Big Island composed primarily of plantation workers. In this same grouping is his 1944 U.S. Draft Card giving him a classification of 4A. Another of the documents is a stock certificate for 20 shares in the Kilauea Volcano House dated 1891. This would be a great research lot for the student of Hawaiian history.

    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.
