Canadian Treasure Found By Local Antiquities Expert
Clinton Beck Local Antiquities Expert and Vice President of the Wild Rose Antique Collectors Society uncovered a stolen treasure from National Museum.
Fifteen years ago Clinton Beck was sold a Top Hat that had an interesting story attached to it. Supposedly it belonged to Sir John A MacDonald. It was also supposedly taken from a museum.
“I hear many interesting stories about provenance on items as sellers believe that this will increase the value.” says Clinton Beck President of Beck Antiques & Jewellery Inc.” In most cases, there is no proof other than rumors and hearsay.”
