    Two Civil War Veterans Satin Reunion Ribbons This lot includes a 3" x 2 3/4" white satin ribbon inscribed, "For those who fell on battlefield - For those since called from line," along with a most unusual red satin ribbon. The latter measures 3" x 6 1/2" and depicts a battle scene, crossed rifles, crossed swords, an anchor, a shovel, a cannon and an ironclad ship. It has a triangle within a shamrock (likely corps insignia) and reads, "Comrades of the Battlefield. Service Under Fire. A L 4. 200 Days Under Fire." This intriguing ribbon was likely worn by a veteran of one of the famous sieges or extended campaigns of the war (Petersberg, Vicksburg, Yorktown or the Peninsula). Both ribbons are clean and undamaged.

    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.
