Derbyshire based Hansons Auctioneers are expanding into coins and antiquities with a new department called Historica (Hansons Auctioneers launches new coins and antiquities department (Antiques Trade Gazette)).
Charles Hanson, founder of Hansons, has hired specialists Adam Staples and Lisa Grace as consultants and will hold three auctions a year under the new Historica banner.
