By Harlan J. Berk, Ltd ……
The Images Collection is an exceptionally fine assemblage of Mint State Flying Eagle and Indian cents built over an eight-year period, with 61 of the 62 coins purchased prior to August of 2002. The collector had a remarkably good eye for color and quality, and it shows throughout. The entire collection of Indian (or Indian Head) cents is graded Red with the exception of one coin. Sixty-five percent of the collection is in either Old Green Tag Holders or First Generation Blue Tag Holders.
The collection was listed as Best in Category on the NGC Registry, Indian Head Cents, 1859-1909, Circulation Issue, and remained in first place for five years from 2005 through 2009. Even though there have not been any additions to the collection since 2007, the set currently remains in second place. Per the collector’s request, not a single coin has been resubmitted for upgrade attempt or crossover.
The Images Collection is absolutely fresh to the market and offering some terrific opportunities.

About Harlan J. Berk (HJB)
Harlan J. Berk, Ltd. was established in 1964 and we are one of top selling ancient coin dealers in the world. Our founder, Harlan Berk, has written extensively on ancient coins and in recent years wrote the popular book, The 100 Greatest Ancient Coins, in 2008 with the second edition coming out soon in 2019 published by Whitman. Harlan’s son Aaron has been in the business since 1992 selling ancient coins beside his father for over 25 years. Harlan’s other employees in the ancient coin department are Curtis Clay, one of the finest Roman coin specialists of our era, and Phillip Davis, a respected collector and dealer with over 30 years of experience.
With nearly 150 years combined experience in ancient coins, HJB now offers an ancient coin verification service, complete with a sticker with the HJB logo that states “Verified”. If we place it on the back of a slab or coin flip it means we have seen it and agree the piece is authentic. We also will offer a sticker with the words “Guaranteed”, which means we offer a lifetime refund for the price paid on any coins that later are proved to be modern copies.
The entire program is free. Owners of coins just need to pay for shipping and insurance to and from our location. We will also have the stickers available at coin shows where our ancient department is present. So stop by our location in Chicago or see you at the next coin show.
