    The Pennsylvania Packet, and Daily Advertiser Newspaper: September 18, 1787. No. 2689., 4 pp. 11.5" x 18.5". This important issue features reporting on the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention on September 17, 1787, the day the U.S. Constitution was signed. Excerpt from issue reads, "...We have the heart-felt pleasure to inform our fellow citizens that the Federal Convention adjourned yesterday, having completed the object of their deliberations - And we hear that Major W. Jackson, the secretary of that honorable body, leaves this city for New York, this morning, in order to lay the great result of their proceedings before the United States in Congress..." Centerfold has been restored. Minor chipping to edges and toning at bottom of second sheet. Given the age, the overall condition is very good.

    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.
