    Harding & Coolidge: An Utterly Spectacular 2 ¼-inch Jugate Design. These judgments are-of course-subjective, but to our taste, this large red, white and blue variety is simply the best jugate of the 1920-24 era. All Harding-Coolidge jugates are tough, but this variety is prohibitively rare. In four decades we have only seen two others. One of the two was noticeably stained, and the other has been deeply ensconced for decades in a small but very refined collection. We have heard anecdotally of perhaps one or two other examples.

    The design speaks for itself! The red and blue colors are so vivid the button almost seems three-dimensional. Choice condition with glossy surface, and certainly one of the top celluloids in the Berman collection. From the Merrill C. Berman Collection.

    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.
