    Description

    Royal Arch Masons: 1872 By-Laws, Silver City, Idaho Territory. 3.75" x 5.75", twenty-one pages, printed wraps. This remarkable little booklet contains the by-laws for the Cyrus Chapter No. 2, of Royal Arch Masons, which was chartered on September 20, 1871 in Silver City, Owyhee County, Idaho Territory. The chapter's initiation fees very much reflect the fact that they were situated in valuable gold and silver fields as "Every petition for the Degree shall be accompanied with fifty dollars". Typical initiation fees in non-mining areas would have been considerably less, one assumes. The booklet is in remarkable condition with only some light soiling to the cover and a few scattered ink stains on a couple of internal pages.

    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.
