    Van Buren & Adams: Prohibitively Rare Free Soil "Grand National Banner". Small folio [9" x 13" sight] hand-colored lithograph published by Kellogg & Comstock of Hartford, titled "Free Soil Candidates For President and Vice President". It shows the former President and son of a president above vignettes of the Capitol and White House. Richly colored in rose, blue, green, yellow, cyan and powder blue. Kellogg & Comstock pirated the designs of Currier's Grand National Banners, sometimes surpassing the quality of the New York publisher. Their versions tend to appear in the market less frequently than their Currier counterparts. We've seen the Currier version a few times, but this is the first appearance, we believe, for the Kellogg & Comstock. Small loss to left border, of little consequence. Matted and framed. The Free Soil Party was a precursor to the Republicans.

    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.
