    Description

    Zachary Taylor Inauguration Ball Invitation, one page, 6" x 9", Washington, D.C., March 5, 1849. A lithograph shows the president-elect in the field as the general he recently had been. Beneath this vignette is the invitation proper followed by a long listing of the Ball's "Managers". A veritable Civil War who's who, this roster is particularly remarkable in that it carries the names of future adversaries Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee. One smoothed fold, else very 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.
