    Description

    [John F. Kennedy] Jacqueline Kennedy's Monogrammed Light Blue Half-Slip. This slip is monogrammed "JBK" in an embroidered pattern of cream lace ribbon and floral design at the front hemline. The slip was given to Mrs. Kennedy's personal secretary, Mary B. Gallagher, during one of Mrs. Kennedy's periodic closet cleaning sessions. Ms. Gallagher helped with the cleanings at Mrs. Kennedy's three Washington residences: 3307 N Street N.W., Georgetown (1956-1960); the White House (1961-1963); and, 3017 N Street N.W., Georgetown (1964). The slip is accompanied by a signed, typed letter from Mary Barelli Gallagher, former secretary to Senator John F. Kennedy (1953-1956) and personal secretary to Mrs. John F. Kennedy (1956-1964), stating that Mrs. Kennedy gave her the slip. The closet cleanings are referenced on page 51 in Ms. Gallagher's 1969 book, My Life with Jacqueline Kennedy. Very fine.

    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.
