    Scarce Stereoview of Sword Presented to the Metropolitan Sanitary Fair imaged by E. & H. T. Anthony. Titled on the back as "The Great $45,000 Sword, Which Grant Got," this stereoview pictures a Tiffany & Co sword made and presented to the Metropolitan Sanitary Fair in 1864. The image is of the sword, hilt, scabbard, and sash laid in its case. Like most stereoviews of this period the corners show wear, and there is a fading to the lettering on the back, but the image is very crisp and the publisher's information is mounted on the back along with a period revenue stamp. Photographers at the fair were of the most important of the period. Marked "No. 1699", this is one of a set published by E. & H. T. Anthony & Co.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
