    UNUSUAL HAND-TINTED CARTE DE VISITE OF CHE-NOPE, SAC & FOX BRAVE. CDVs of Indians are rare; hand-tinted ones even more so. Here, photographer A.W. Barker of Ottawa, Kansas, has captured Sac and Fox warrior Che-nope in all his glory. The elderly brave wears an impressive bear-claw necklace with a presidential peace medallion at center, and holds a large eagle feather fan. Che-nope's shirt sleeve and the blanket wrapped around his waist have been hand-tinted, as has the feather in his hair. Chipping and wear at edges and corners of mount, affecting image at upper right corner only. A unique and desirable item!

    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.
