On the PCGS forum a week or so ago, a member there posted 2 early Canadian coins, beautiful by themselves, but were enclosed in old coin envelopes from a 19th century collector. 4-5 years ago I bought an 1859 & 1876 Vicky cent with the same fine penmanship and then forgot about them. I have shown them to a few of you at a coin show way back then and put them away. I asked, on the PCGS site, if the initial PCGS poster could put his info in my thread, hoping that maybe someone else has any like it and if anyone knew whose hand actually penned the writing on the envelopes. I'd like to find a TPG that could holster both the coin and envelope in one single side-by-side holder, but I've never gotten around to it. Probably because I don't use TPGs, period. Anyway, here's a link to the PCGS thread and hope that someone else knows where they originated; Oh, rats, it looks like this PCGS link is not allowed on this CCF site.

The PCGS thread I describe is in the "World and Ancient Coin Forum" in a thread called old calligraphy coin envelopes. Check it out to see what a Canadian collector in the 1880's used to ID his coins on the envelopes. Here's cell-phone shots of my 2 coins/envelopes. Best I can do with no camera:

Nice piece of history along with a couple nice coins. That would be special to get them graded and put in a side by side hard slab keep the history preserved together.
Like mentioned Bill thanks for the post with pictures and story

The envelopes are as beautiful as the coins, they would be even better if not for the pen marks.
