This Sunday evening at midnight, we will be launching our latest batch of “Weird & Wonderful” auction items on eBay.
This initial session will be comprised entirely of modern European medals, most from the estate of the distinguished Canadian diplomat Claude Charland, former Ambassador to Guatemala, Mexico, Italy, Libya and (finally) France. Some of these pieces are quite remarkable in terms of theme and design – please take a look!
Further auction sessions will be launched throughout the next few weeks, promising our usual remarkable diversity and character – the hallmarks of our “Weird & Wonderful” philosophy!
