A group of 10 medals earned across both World Wars, awarded to Cap­tain Ger­vase Wil­liam Heaton of the Royal Navy, will be on sale by Spink USA. Part of the Nu­mis­matic Col­lec­tor’s Series auc­tion, the medals were given in recog­ni­tion of the cap­tain’s com­mit­ment to his coun­try dur­ing his ser­vice. Heaton’s com­bi­na­tion of ac­co­lades is con­sid­ered rare, with one of the medals be­ing one of only 37 awarded to the Royal Navy dur­ing the war. The col­lec­tion is es­ti­mated to go un­der the ham­mer for US$5,000-$7,000.
