Guided Navigation

What is Guided Navigation?
Guided navigation is the ability to add and remove keywords and categorizations of items to filter your results. As you add these filters, they appear in the breadcrumb trail above the search results. You can remove any filter from the breadcrumb trail at any time.

How do I narrow my search?
You can add a filter in the left column, such as "Currency Category", "Current Bid Range", "Reserve Status", "Currency Grade", and so on. Each time you make such a selection, the listing of results will become smaller, showing only those items that meet all the criteria you have selected. You can also enter one or more keywords, such as "1934-A", if that will help your search.

How do I expand my search?
You can add or drop fields or keywords from your results at any time. Above the listing of results is a complete list of the filters you have selected. Click on the remove link next to any filter to remove it, and the page will refresh to show all items matching the new broader specifications.

For Example:
Imagine - you collect Legal Tender Notes. You want the highest quality notes available, and you are interested in both small sized and large sized notes. How do you search for them on the Heritage site?

Currently, you can browse or search for either Large-sized Legal Tender Notes or Small-Sized Legal Tender Notes. You do not have the option to look for them both at the same time. You can choose to enter a keyword for a specific grade, but that's it — you are at the sometimes perilous mercy of the descriptions of the note, and there is no way to choose a grade range.

Our targeted searches are much more powerful. Choose one from Currency Category:

  • Federal Reserve Bank Notes
  • Federal Reserve Notes
  • Legal Tender Notes
  • National Bank Notes
  • Silver Certificates
  • Fractional Currency
  • (etc.)

Choose the size, if you wish:

  • Large Size
  • Small Size

What about grading service? If this matters to you, go to Currency Grading Service and choose the service - or services - that most interest you; you can choose as many as you want:

  • PMG
  • PCGS
  • CGA
  • Uncertified

And maybe you're only interested in the finest available quality. From Currency Grade choose the grade — or grades — you're looking for:

  • AU50-AU58
  • CU60-CU62
  • CU63
  • CU64
  • CU65

Perhaps you're looking for a star note, or a note with exceptional paper quality:

  • Star Note
  • Paper Quality
    • (You can choose both of these!)

Or even a featured Item in an auction, in Highlights:

  • Featured
  • New Inventory
  • Virtual Bourse

And, if you like — add a keyword (use the box right below "Refine Your Results"):

  • 1928-A

To change your search from Legal Tender Notes to Silver Certificates and keep all your other search criteria, click "Remove" next to your selection of Legal Tender Notes at top, then choose "Silver Certificates" from the list of Currency Categories on the left.

Keep in mind always that your available search selections are on the left side of the page, and that the listing of selections you've already made is at the top, and that you can always remove a selection you've already made by clicking on the "Remove" link next to it. Remember: you can make your selections in any order!
