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; and the Waterloo medal. In world coins I am seeking Chinese dragon dollars (real ones, I've already got lots of counterfeits), Australian holey dollars, and Weimar Germany 5 Reichsmark with Zepellin reverse. 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.
