Coins, Medals, Banknotes and Share Certificat

This sale features strong collections in all subject areas. Of particular note is the earliest known railway share certificate in the world. From the Derby Canal (Little Eaton Railway) dated 1793 and printed on vellum the text states...'for making and maintaining a navigable canal from the River Trent...to Little Eaton...in the County of Derby'. There are probably less than 10 of these certificates known to exist worldwide.
