Heritage offers Spotlight on Canada Sale

Heritage Auctions is presenting 231 lots of Canadian materials in its upcoming Spotlight on Canada Sale on May 7.

Among the lots, there is a diverse range of tokens, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia material, along with Canadian decimals. One particular lot that has already sparked active bidding online is a 1861 ‘fabulous Nova Scotia Specimen ½-Cent’ (Lot 23040).

The online description highlights its remarkable features: “A stunning jewel with glassy fields carrying a silvery patina over the finely die-polished surface. The incredibly finely engraved bust of Victoria is delightful to inspect under magnification, as every detail is impeccably sharp and bears witness to remarkable craftsmanship. A captivating choice for collectors seeking only the highest quality examples for their collection.”
