    [Texas Rangers]. Two Mexican Revolution Era Photographs, circa 1916. The first, a silver print measuring 5.75" x 3.5", features three Rangers on horseback. An inscription on the verso describes the scene: "Texas Rangers, Ysleta, Texas, 1916 In their corral at time of Border Trouble with Villa. We were there building road. Knew Rangers well." Very light silvering in the dark areas. The second, 5.5" x 3.25", shows two Mexican prisoners. The man on the left has a collar around his neck with a large chain extending down his body out of sight. The two men are shackled together at their wrists. Thin black border below the photograph is slightly silvered. Chipped at the right edge.

    During the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920), rebel groups, mostly Seditionistas, made raids across the border into Texas in an effort to rid the border of white Americans during what is known as the Bandit War. Their ultimate goal, laid forth in the "Plan of San Diego," was the annexation of the states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and California back into Mexico. While the U.S. Army engaged the rebels, most of the fighting was carried out by the Texas Rangers.

    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.
