    Description

    Franklin Pierce: Highly Important Rectangular Snuff Box with Hinged Lid. With the exception of a couple widely-distributed brass tokens, Franklin Pierce is arguably the toughest candidate of that era for whom to find campaign artifacts. We have seen several round snuff boxes, but not another example of this great version. Color portrait is surrounded by gold lettering: "Frank Pierce President of the United States". Excellent overall condition with just a trace of typical surface crazing. Light wear from handling, but in great overall display condition as the photos show. 3.5" x 2.063" x 0.875".

    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.
