    Theodore Roosevelt and Booker T. Washington: Iconic Equality Print.
    22" x 14" print titled: "Equality. Dinner Given at the White House By President Theodore Roosevelt to Booker T. Washington, October 17th, 1901". TR and Booker T. are seated at the dinner table under the benevolent gaze of Abraham Lincoln. Published by Royal Picture Gallery of Chicago in 1903. The event spawned a great deal of controversy and was a public relations mistake Roosevelt never repeated. This print was popular among the African American population and likely held a place of honor in many homes. Some insect damage along bottom border, some roughness and discoloration around edges. Insect damage [small hole] in right background and in TR's coat [two small holes]. Properly matted and framed, this should look great!

    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.
