    Description

    Benjamin Harrison & Grover Cleveland: Fantastic 1892 "Presidential See-Saw" Dexterity Game.
    Words can't describe this amazing campaign piece....but we will try! Dexterity game that pictures Harrison and Cleveland on a see-saw with the Capitol Dome in the background. The game is titled the "Presidential See-Saw". Below the images reads the directions "3 In 5 Pockets Wins The Presidency". The player would tilt the game back and forth attempting to have the ball land on their choice for President. The piece, being glass covered, still retains the orignal directions label on the edge. The piece measures .75" thick and 2.25" in diameter. It is in remarkable condition, and worthy of the finest collection. Pictured in Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.'s Running For President: The Candidates and Their Images, volume 1, p. 420.

    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.
