    Description

    LZ 129 Hindenburg Disaster: Aluminum Fretwork Retrieved from the Wreckage. 7" x 2" strip of aluminum inscribed on one side: "This was given to my Brother, Tom Alfred, Recovered By Joe Alfred About Midnight" and, on the other "At 6:50 P.M. Hindenburg Air Ship May 6, 1937 at Lakehurst, N.J." Joe was Tom's father, who went to check on his son after the disaster, who was working at the airfield, and recovered this piece. He gave this to Tom the following day at 6:50 P.M. The pattern of all-over crazing bears witness to its tragic origin and ordeal.

    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.
