Harry Garrison’s interest in coins was first stimulated by the Canadian coins issued for the 1976 summer Olympics held in Montreal. Prior to this event, his interest had been US stamps.

Harry began dealing in coins on a regular basis in the fall of 1991. Partnering with Ray Flanigan, Harry and Ray traded as Flanigan and Garrison until Ray retired in 1996. Harry continued on under the trade name – Colonial Valley Coins - setting up at various shows on the east coast.

Harry retired after 38 years of corporate life ( Vice-President – McGraw-Hill Companies) at the year end 2000.

Harry opened his coin shop – Colonial Valley Coins – in January 2001. The shop, located at 4343 South Broad Street in the Yardville section of Hamilton, was an opportunity to continue in the rare coin business as a retirement activity. It keeps him off the street, out of the house ( wife is happy ) but off the golf course.

If you have coins to sell, please contact Harry during the day at Colonial Valley Coins or after hours on his Cell Phone at 609-851-6165.
