Guided navigation is the ability to add and remove keywords and categorizations of items to filter your results. As you add these filters,
they appear in the breadcrumb trail above the search results. You can remove any filter from the breadcrumb trail at any time.
Start your search as you've always done. From the home page, catalog home page, or search page, you can select a keyword
and choose a coin type such as "Nickels" or "Barber Half Dollars", and then click "Search". Much of the time, this will be all you need!
You can add a filter in the left column, such as "Category", "Current Bid Range", "Reserve Status", "Grade Range", and so on. Each time you
make such a selection, the listing of results will become smaller, showing only those items that meet all the criteria you have selected.
You can also enter one or more keywords, such as "The Godfather", if that will help your search. Sometimes a new selection will open up new
sub-selection possibilities; for instance, once you choose to look for a poster graded between Fine and Very Fine, you can then narrow your search to a single grade.
You can add or drop fields or keywords from your results at any time. Above the listing of results is a complete list of the filters you
have selected. Click on any filter to remove it, and the page will refresh to show all items matching the new broader specifications.
The guided navigation section only lists things that contain results. For example, if you are looking at all items in grade Near Mint to Mint,
then the category filter will only include categories with items in that grade. To expand your list of categories, remove the grade filter from
your breadcrumb trail by clicking on it.

Using "quotes" around your search phrase can help narrow the results to exactly what you are interested in. A search for plastic man without quotes will return all results that contain both "plastic" and "man", in any order.
A search for "plastic man" in quotes returns all results with the exact phrase plastic man, in that order.
This will produce more items, and once you see how the items are listed, you can narrow your search
results with more accurate words.
If you're looking for only silver smalls, by all means choose "silver
smalls" from the drop-down list. If you're searching for items that may fall into a variety of categories,
choose ALL from the drop-down.
Maybe it's a pattern (like Lily), or even a piece of holloware (punch bowl). Perhaps you know the pattern
number from a tea service (X258, 8265 etc.) - use that.
When you use multiple words, the search engines will try to find items with all of those words in the
description. Try using "OR" and "NOT". If you're interested in all Tiffany and Gorham items, you can
enter "Tiffany OR Gorham". This would limit your search to just items with either of those manufacturers
in the description. Or, if you are interested in un-monogrammed candlesticks, you can enter "candlesticks
Don't use commas, periods, dashes, etc., unless required - such as child's cup.

item(s) you are looking for to our "MyWantList" and you'll be
notified as soon as it/they become available. If you would like further assistance, please don't
