    Sensational 1880 Garfield Flag With $20 Gold Piece Motif
    This pennant-shaped, glazed cotton banner is the plate example from Threads of History (No. 491, page 225), and we know of no other example. This was long before the gold/silver standard controversy, so presumably the intent was to suggest that the Garfield-Arthur ticket was as solid as that massive gold coin. While this unique piece does have some condition problems, it retains very pleasing overall display appearance. There is deterioration down the left edge, but not encroaching on the design. Minor roughness along the bottom left edge and at lower RH corner. Light soiling along the right side is typical for this type of item: originally mounted on a stick, it was stored rolled, with this end exposed to soiling and wear. On the whole, the catalog photo speaks to its very pleasing, eye-catching display value. Erroneously described as 27" x 13 1/4" in Threads; the correct dimensions are 27" x 17". Nicely custom-framed.

    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.
