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

but off the golf course.
