This summer I also managed a trip to the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh but to their stores not the main museum (which I visited last year). I then spent some time with Peter hunting down their old Spanish material in the hope that we would fine something old and interesting! I'll add some photos soon but is this really a Heuland label? Or does it just mean that the specimen came from Henry Heuland. It is a nice small Almaden specimen with some fine crystals

It certainly looks like Heuland's writing, the style of individual letters looks like those on other Heuland labels. And it appears to have a typical paper "Heuland number" on the side too.
