    Tombstone, Arizona: Real Photograph of Last Stagecoach to Tombstone. A rare postcard photograph 5.5" x 3 3/8", taken around March 27, 1903, shows the Modoc stage line taking its last trip to Tombstone. This photograph would have been taken around the time that the El Paso & Southwestern Railroad passenger train finally arrived in Tombstone. The Modoc stage was built around 1887 at A. H. Emanuel's Pioneer Carriage and Blacksmith Ship in Tombstone for the Arizona Mail and Stage Company to carry mail and passengers between Tombstone and Fairbank. The coming of the railroad in 1903 put the Arizona Mail and Stage Company out of business. The back of the postcard has the signature of Alice W. Lutley, wife of William Lutley, who arrived in Tombstone in January of 1881. The top right edge of the postcard is bent and supported on the back with tape, otherwise the condition of the item is good.

    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.
