    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Bunting Fragment from the 1861 Inaugural Train. 2.75" x 1.25". The red, white, and blue painted canvas fragment is mounted on cardstock and accompanied by an unsigned typed note that reads, "This piece of bunting that decorated the Inaugural Train in which President-Elect Abraham Lincoln rode from Springfield to Washington in 1861. It was obtained by a Union Army physician, Dr. Edward Darling, when the train stopped in Cincinnati." 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.
