    John Quincy Adams: "Anti-Jacksonian" Campaign Newspapers. August 18th and September 22nd 1828 issues of "The Anti-Jacksonian" published in Newark, New Jersey for the sole purpose of defeating Andrew Jackson for the Presidency. They measure 10.25" x 14", four pages (bifolium). Each has an Adams & Rush ballot on the cover with Theodore Frelinghuysen listed as an Elector. Some of the articles deal with election bets ("A bet of $500, offered on the result of the election in this State, has not been covered... You are authorized to offer the following Bets... $100 that Jackson does not get the votes of Louisiana..."). We have to think these are very rare. Ideal size for display.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
