    Schuyler Colfax: Original Uncut Sheet of Tintype Images for Ferrotype Badges. This auction offers three of these, which exceeds the total handled by your writer in over three decades of active hobby involvement! Here we have ten very large 26mm images, intended for a front-and-back badge with Grant on the other side. Colfax, a congressman and Speaker of the House, was elected vice president as Grant's 1868 running mate. While all the images have fine surface scratches, they detract minimally from the display appeal of the sheet as a whole. Like the other two ferro sheets offered here, it has been nicely matted and custom-framed (not shown in catalog photo) for display. Measures 4" x 3.125".

    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.
