    ESPECIALLY HANDSOME MINT EXAMPLE POSSESSING FULL MARGINS, EXCEPTIONAL COLOR AND FULL ORIGINAL GUM, MADE ALL THE MORE DESIRABLE BY THE PRESENCE OF A FULL SHEET MARGIN.

    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.
