Locations[edit]

Auctions[edit]

Heritage combines both proxy and live Internet bidding with traditional floor auctions. In both 1999 and 2001, www.HeritageCoin.com, the predecessor to www.HA.com, was chosen by Forbes Magazine as one of the 250 best sites on the Internet. Heritage hosts separate website sections for each type of collectible they support and each lot's web listing contains third-party pricing and rarity data.

In 2014, Heritage's total sales exceeded $969 million, a single year record for any collectibles firm. As of January 2, 2015, Heritage had over 850,000 registered online bidders.[5]
