Canada - Annual Collections for 1975 and 1976. Pristine quality Canada Post yearbooks, both in original envelopes. The 1975 and 1976 books are nearly as scarce as the much higher catalogued 1974 issue. 2019 Unitrade.
Canada - Annual Collections for 1976 to 1986 plus Thematic Packs. Eleven consecutive years of Canada Post Yearbooks, all in perfect condition, almost all with intact original plastic sleeves, cardboard cases or shrink wrapping, containing mint NH stamps, souvenir sheets and booklets for the years 1976 to 1986 inclusive, plus a handful of thematic books/packs from the same time period.

All the books are in VF to pristine condition. A great start to these impressive and informative publications. The more recent annual collections are much harder to find than the older volumes. Total face value of the mint NH stamps, panes and souvenir sheets in the 15 volumes is $519.12. 2019 Unitrade.
Canada - BABNC "Baby Sisters" Centennial Era Sample Stamps. Decades old specialized offering of the British American Bank Note Company "Baby Sisters" engraved stamp samples, printed in various colours, perforation combinations and gum types. According to the original dealer handling this material (Gary Lyon Philatelist Ltd.), due to unequal numbers of the various varieties, there are only a very limited number of these lots capable of being prepared. This group consists of six multi-coloured imperf between pairs - two with additional perforated stamps to make eye-catching triptychs. We don't often see the multicolour printings. The lot includes a colour photo of the experimental pane format. A "must have" lot for the QEII Centennial issue specialist. Estimate
Canada - CAPEX '78 thematic collection of specialized items including unusual First Day Covers plus various Canada Post different commemorative "day cancels" on cover, produced during the show, a small selection of foreign CAPEX issues, mint and on cover, a Japanese Post Office folder with a specialty PO booth cancel and a Greg Manning promotional brochure.

Consists of 229 different stamps in total. These die-cuts are very hard to find as they only came in collector's packs or annual collection albums and were not available over the counter as normal stamps. This format is the only way to get neat looking mint singles with intact backing. 2019 Unitrade.
Canada Carton - Banker's box filled to the brim, containing, in no particular order, mint and used War Tax issues on 3-ring pages, green stockbook with mint and used Canada, Centennial, Caricature and Flower series booklets, Registration stamps, Postage Dues, Revenues, Perfins, Airmails, Airmail Special Deliveries, used material in 102 dealer cards, plate blocks, and Cinderellas.

Conservatively valued as face value postage only. Total Face value

Canada - Presentation Book Darnell #SP16. The 1951 CAPEX Official Prestige Presentation Book, issued by Canada Post, with blue leatherette cover, embossed gold crest and text. Contains a VF MNH set of blocks of #311-314, the Canadian Stamp Centenary issue. Very limited issue and a key addition to any Souvenir Book collection. Only listed (and in our opinion severely underpriced) in the 2005 Darnell catalogue. As an added bonus, the lot includes a set of special cacheted covers, each one carried from Richmond Hill ON by different means (locomotive, helicopter, stagecoach and native runner). Valued as the book only. Undervalued 2005 Darnell catalogue.

Canada - Top Quality Modern 1,000+ all "P" commemoratives used on paper, mostly 2015 to 2018 and a few 2019 issues. NO Christmas, NO greetings, NO definitives, includes a few semi-postals. Great variety! It's extremely hard to find modern Canada PURE commemorative used lots. Estimate
Canada - Used Souvenir Sheets - 88 different used between 1982 and 2018 issues (between #913a and #3087), all postally used, though some have gum as they were placed in protective envelopes on registered parcels. Used are much scarcer than mint! 2019 Unitrade.
Canada Cancels - BRITISH COLUMBIA POSTMARKS – A rather MARVELOUS lot. Many of these items are noted as being under discussion for inclusion in "the next catalogue" as they are presently unlisted. Michael Sagar's MOON 1950-1973 catalogue is included. Many are on #8 fronts, with 40 different closed post offices on the fronts - almost all are "C" for rarity. Hundreds, probably a few thousand more that are not only MOONs but CDS dated. Sub post offices do not offer a rarity factor and there are a few openings of 3 yrs or less (a 1969 Nelson sub 4 and MOON, open less than 1 year; Courtenay Sub 1 open 1971-1972; Surrey Sub 8, open 1969-1971). Here is the possibly unique aspect - there are 18 with special notes attached that speak to the postmarks (mostly MOONs) that look as if they are written maybe by Fred Bailey himself on covers. Some of these are addressed to him, indicating they are unlisted or not known. Includes notes re differences of listed items with side note in red saying, "Mike agrees", with notes such as "New # will be issued" to cover this newfound variety. There is at least one of Arnot's. There are approximately another 100, mostly #8s; on quick view these do not seem to have any rare status. Also 19 black plastic double-sided stock pages with mostly MOON cancels on stamps in sleeves. Finally, a brown envelope with loose stamps with mostly MOONs – a few are closed POs such as "Premier BC". Generally Fine overall. Total of 150+ covers plus a few thousand postmarks on stamps and catalogue with scripted additional notes. The student of this area should find a small treasure here. Estimate
Canada Covers - First Day Cover Motherlode. Banker's box containing 1,264 carefully stored First Day Covers, with issues ranging from 1968 to 1987 plus a couple of more recent FDCs. Clean and neatly typewritten addresses on the early private cachets, unaddressed on the more recent Canada Post cacheted covers. Pretty comprehensive for the period and an excellent basis for expansion. All neatly stored chronologically in cover boxes. Estimate
Canada Covers - Karsh/Wilding Issues. Three volume extensively annotated exhibit/collection of Karsh and Wilding era covers and cards including just about every aspect of Canadian postal history for this time period. Noted local letters, forwarded letters, perfins, officials, postage dues, postal stationary, special delivery, foreign destination, free frankings and a myriad of other directional markings, rates, and usages. 134 pieces in total with all individually retail priced. An excellent lot for the Elizabethan era collector or dealer as all the research and pricing has been done for you. Owner's total retail price
Canada Perfins - Three pages containing 277 company/government /private perfin stamps, several in mixed condition. All different in stamp, issuer or pattern, raging from Queen Victoria to Queen Elizabeth II. Perfin factor "F". Owner's estimate

Includes better material like #1121-1123, 1135, 1136, 1143-1148, B14-B16 and C65-C67.
