    Two Photographs of Slaves (or Freedmen). The cabinet card (4.25" x 6.5") features an elderly black man wearing an apron with a cane in one hand and his hat in the other. Below the image reads in ink, "Thiss[?] was an old Nigger and they called him Uncle Ned." Minor soiling. The other image is oval (measuring 8.5" from top to bottom) and features a seated well-dressed and bearded black man. Pencil notations on the reverse read, "Ellis our colored coachman Lt. Macks Place 1850." Some staining and spotting. Some pencil marks outlining parts of the subject.

    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.
