    Confederate Colonel Henry Rutledge Carte de Visite, no backmark, Confederate manufacture. An excellent studio portrait with the young colonel holding a regulation kepi and wearing a Model 1851 sword belt plate. A penciled inscription on the verso erroneously identifies Rutledge as being colonel of the 26th North Carolina. Clipped corners as made, period tinting to lower left and right portions of image. Fine condition. Henry Middleton Rutledge (1839 - 1921) enlisted as a major in the 25th North Carolina, on August 15, 1861. He was elected colonel of the regiment in April, 1862 and served in that capacity until the surrender at Appomattox. A fighting regiment, the 25th was active in the Carolinas and Virginia. Rutledge was, in fact, twice wounded.

    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.
