    Alaskan Gold Rush: Anchorage and Nome Photos. This lot contains four items: a 1905 postcard showing "Front Street, Ketchikan, Alaska, October 5, 1905", an 8.5" x 6.5" sepia photo of downtown "Nome City 1900" (minor skinning primarily to border) with throngs of humanity and the "Gold Belt Dance Hall" prominently featured, a 9" x 45" panoramic photo by Scarborough of Anchorage, Alaska (circa 1915-1925 showing the Chugach Mountains looking east to west) and an 8" x 50.5" panoramic photo of "Anchorage Now" (circa 1960) comprised of eleven 8" x 10" glossies taped together in a rather unprofessional attempt to produce a true panoramic photo. This may have been used with the earlier panoramic photo for a news article. We assign no particular value to the last piece. The other three items are old and nice.

    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.
