    Six Lincoln-related CDVs. Each of the Cartes de Visite images here is inscribed on the verso as follows: "Purchased at Oak Ridge Cemetery Springfield, Ill Dec. 5th, 1865 by Henry A. Whitney". Whitney mustered out of the 33rd Illinois Infantry in Vicksburg, Mississippi with the rank of Sergeant on November 24, 1865. It would seem likely that he was a great admirer of Lincoln's and made a side pilgrimage to the slain president's tomb while returning home to Milford, Illinois. The CDVs include "President Lincoln And Family", "George Washington", ""President Lincoln's Tomb", "President Lincoln's Tomb - Interior View", "Home of President Lincoln - Springfield, Ill", and "President Lincoln's First Home in Illinois". The tomb views are from life, however the others are from engravings.The images average very good condition with the usual light aging. This is a special grouping since it was formed by a mourning veteran just as soon as he was able to do so.

    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.
