Other selections from numerous consignors round out another outstanding auction including a nice West Coast vari- ety collection, a rarely offered selection of named Governor General medals and finally the second-to-last offering of the Richard Cooper Collection. Much anticipation surrounds these collections as individuals are planning on attending the sale from all over North America in hopes of an opportunity in obtaining a piece of this historic event. We feel privileged to be given the opportunity to be entrusted with such treasures and thank our contributors who have placed their faith in us.
