    Description

    North Carolina Pro-Hoover Poster. WHITE MEN AND WOMEN DISFRANCHISED IN NORTH CAROLINA!, one page, 9" x 15.75", 1928. A group of seemingly ordinary white adults is shown below this alarming headline. The whole seems to insinuate that it would have been okay if Blacks - and not these fine folks - had been denied the vote. The poster's secondary copy reads as follows: "The above WHITE MEN AND WOMEN will not vote for Herbert Hoover for President November 6, 1928, because Pet Denton, Smith Registrar, of Zebulon, Wake County, N.C., refused to register them. Some were refused on the ground of alleged EDUCATIONAL DISQUALIFICATION, and others under false claim of nonresidence. All have lived in the State all their lives and in Denton's precinct for more than seven months; some for many years. Each of them begs you to Cast a Vote for Hoover for Them in order to punish the Tammany System of Politics in North Carolina." Fold creases from mailing, else in very nice condition. The first example of this historically important item that we have encountered.

    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.
