    Description

    Gutta Percha Union Photo Case Dated 1855 In very near mint condition, a 1/6 plate size. The outside of the case has a coined eagle emblem on the front and back, made to look like a ten dollar gold piece even down to the striking of the tiny "o" for the New Orleans mint. The gold leaf has chipped away on the front depiction of the piece, but the back is so clean it looks like a real gold piece. Unusual for a Union case design this piece would make an exquisite presentation if one included a tin type or dag of a soldier. A super case with very little edge damage and a working clasp.

    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.
