RECENT PURCHASES: Extremely Rare Riel Rebellion military medals, better known as North West Rebellion 1885 medals. One of the medals has the Saskatchewan Clasp and was awarded to a soldier aboard the steamship gunboat Northcote. Another medal with clasp was awarded to a North West Mounted Police constable who fought at Duck Lake. (for more info press the Militaria icon to your left and then Canada).
Among the most notable coins I have owned are 11 different 1921 silver 5 cents, several 1893 Round Top 10 cents (including one from the Norweb Collection), 1906 Small Crown 25 cents, numerous 1872H A/V (Die Break A) 25 cents, 1870 No LCW 50 cents, 1947 ML Curved Right 50 cents, numerous 1948 silver dollars, 5 different 1966 Small Beads silver dollars, and an extremely rare 1916c gold sovereign from the Belzberg Collection. As you can see, I'm interested in coins that are difficult to obtain, including JOP dollars and early Specimen sets from 1908 and 1911. Newfoundland rarities include 1946c 5 cents (only 2041 minted) and 1880 $2 gold (only 2500 minted). I also specialize in the tokens and artifacts of the Hudson's Bay Company and the North West Company. One of my NWC tokens was recently sold to the Royal Alberta Museum where it will be on permanent display. Other rarities include a Prince Edward Island holey dollar and a Yap Stone.
WANTED: I am currently looking to purchase rare Canadian Government and Chartered Bank Notes, especially proofs, specimens and issued notes of the Bank of British Columbia, Canadian Bank of Commerce with Yukon or Dawson overrprints, Commercial Bank of Manitoba, Bank of Saskatchewan, Union Bank of Canada Winnipeg 1912 with North West Territories overprint, Bank of Vancouver, and Weyburn Security Bank. I am also on the lookout for Playing Card Money as well as Army Bills from 1813-1815. I am also seeking fur trade tokens from the North West Company, Ralph Parsons, Lamson and Hubbard, Robert Cunningham and Sons as well as all Hudson's Bay Company tokens, paper money etc. Also looking for PEI holey dollars and plugs, as well as Victorian-era Canadian Indian Treaty medals. Also of interest are early Governor General of Canada medals in bronze, silver and gold, especially those of Lord Stanley and Earl Grey. The military medals I am seeking to purchase are a Victoria Cross awarded to a Canadian or British soldier (a real one; I've already got a bunch of replicas); a Naval General Service medal with Shannon and Chesapeake clasp, or Trafalgar clasp; Waterloo medal; and the Canada General Service medal with Red River clasp. In world coins I am seeking Chinese dragon dollars (real ones, I've already got lots of counterfeits), Australian holey dollars, Weimar Germany 5 Reichsmark with Zepellin reverse, and Japanese kobans, goryobans and obans. The search is on for all countermarked coins, the cut and countermarked coinage of the Caribbean, and western chopmarked coins used in China and Japan. I am also seeking to purchase spectacular error coins and coins with outstanding toning.
