    Carte de Visite of Confederate Captain John C. Landis, circa 1861. The noted Missouri Artillery Battery commanded by Captain John C. Landis was comprised of men from St. Joseph and St. Louis, Missouri, and served bravely at a number of important Civil War battles, including Pea Ridge, Champion's Hill, and the Siege of Vicksburg. Here, Landis poses for a full-length studio portrait wearing his uniform, his kepi on the table at his side. Image measures approximately 2.5" x 3.5" and has been affixed to a two-sided sleeved page from a photo album. On verso, a seated full-length image of a woman identified as Mary Nestleton; image and paper sleeve are in fine condition. Landis' image is lightly age toned and faintly foxed, but is impressive nevertheless. The paper sleeve framing the Landis photo shows moderate staining and wear.

    Condition: Light age toning; near fine.

    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.
