    SHAW PHOTO OF MOET & CHANDON CHAMPAGNE DELIVERY ca 1913-1915. The town of Tonopah, Nevada grew up around the site at which Jim Butler discovered silver ore in 1900. By 1907, Tonopah had become a regular city, with modern hotels, electric and water companies, five banks, schools and hundreds of other buildings. In 1913, the Tonopah Club opened its doors, and here we see a delivery man dropping off a huge shipment of champagne to the drinking and gambling establishment. Image measures 8.5" x 6.5" and is in very fine condition, save for the penciled notation just below the Tonopah Club's window. Affixed to the 12" x 10" mount of the "Florentine Art Studio, Herbert T. Shaw, Photographer. Tonopah, Nev." A terrific photo from the Nevada silver boom.

    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.
