Video of the Week

In this week's video, Sandra Palomino at Heritage Auction Galleries hosts a review of its forthcoming manuscripts and autographs sale.

Major highlights in the sale include a letter signed by George Washington and franked "President U.S.", dated October 17, 1796.

Written to Edward Carrington, Washington sends his regrets at having not received Carrington's recommendation for Surveyor General before nominating another candidate.


George Washington's letter to Edward Carrington, opening at $17.5k


Bids on the letter open at $17,500, and are set to rise considerably over the next seven days.

With George Washington autographs on the market currently commanding values up to £29,950 ($49,420), anticipations will be very high for this lot.

In the above video, Sandra Palomino discusses various highlights from the sale, likely to generate excited bids over the coming week.

The auction will take place on February 11-12 in Beverley Hills, California.
