    S. D. Myres Sweetwater Texas Vintage Chaps. An early pair of chaps from Sam Myres's Sweetwater Texas company circa 1898-1920. The leather chaps measure 35" in length and about 13" wide. Small flag pockets adorn each leg. Large brass studs form a border along the edge of each leg and smaller brass studs in heart and star shapes add to the decoration. Five white metal rondelles each supporting leather tassels run vertically on each leg. The Myres maker stamp appears twice on the supporting leather belt. The white metal buckle is still present. There is a 3" tear present at the top of the left leg where it attaches to the supporting belt and a smaller 1" tear in the same location on the right leg. The chaps have been liberally treated with lanolin or a similar leather preservative and as such are still supple and in very good condition. A cowboy has crudely tooled the initials "TXT" and "UT" on the belt. An attractive pair of vintage chaps from the premier Texas saddle maker.

    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.
