    Roosevelt & Garner: "Hello" Rarity. This 2¼" Roosevelt & Garner is without a doubt one of the very best Roosevelt word pins. "Happy Days are Here Again" blaze across the top rim, and "Good Luck From Your Missouri Friends" across the middle and bottom. I remember sitting in the office of the A.P.I.C. Hall of Famer Joe Jacobs when he got his in the mail back in the 1970s. He said he had known of its existence for nearly 40 years, but had never come across one until then. This is, in fact, that very button- believed to be the only known copy. It maintains its 1 3/8" attachment ribbon at the top and its Merloy Products Co., Kansas City, Mo. backpaper. It has three or four tiny age spots to bottom of "R" in Roosevelt mentioned for accuracy. From the John Harris Collection.

    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.
