    John Quincy Adams: A Rare Brass Ring, Either from the 1824 Election or Celebrating His Inauguration. A rather small, women's size ring with raised decoration all around. A small eagle is followed by "Hon. John Q. Adams * President 1825." Both edges ornamented with a raised, rope- like border. It may have been issued in anticipation of his election, or as an inaugural souvenir. Very nicely made and in excellent condition. Only perhaps the third we have encountered in nearly forty years. J. Q. Adams items of any kind are, of course, very rare. The width of the band is 3.5mm, and the diameter is 18mm.

    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.
