    Quarter Plate Tintype of Armed Union Soldier (Krainik 27/49), ca. early 1860s, this fine stalwart wears a nine-button blue shell jacket accented with the red piping associated with artillery. His waist, however, is encircled with a Model 1851 sword belt rig and he appears to be holding a Model 1860 cavalry saber in his left hand. It is quite likely that this weapon, not being an artillery saber, was merely a photographer's prop. The backdrop consists of a painted camp scene complete with tents, caisson and tinted American flag. A faint oval outline on the photograph suggests that the image was originally under a different mat. Some spidering on the emulsion and uneven surfaces. The scarce thermoplastic case housing the image promotes patriotism on its lid with an eagle / shield device amid piles of arms, Krainik 27. The back of the case, Krainik 49, is embossed with a bud-filled urn. Together, the case and image are in choice fine condition.

    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.
