    Description

    Benjamin Harrison and Grover Cleveland: A Classic Set of Bisque Scales from the 1888 Election. Among collectors of political display items, this charming pair has always been a favorite. Bisque slings containing the rival candidates are suspended from the original wood and metal scale. Harrison may be moved along the bar, so that one's preferred candidate could be made to outweigh his opponent. Choice condition. These delicate bisques were vulnerable to having the projections broken off, and it is very difficult to find an example this nice. Overall width 5.5".

    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.
