    Description

    Theodore Roosevelt: An Exceedingly Rare 7/8" Trigate Coat-tail Button from 1904. "Indiana's Choice," featuring T.R., Fairbanks, and Hanley. This is the plate example from the original 1896-1972 Hake book (pg. 64 no. 185), and the only example we can ever recall encountering. Condition is choice- the sepia looks a little faded but, in our opinion, this is "as made," as it is not unusual to find mint condition sepia buttons of this general style with uneven tone. From the collection of Kenneth Broyles.

    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.
