Canada #601, 601i, 727, 727i, 727iv, 936, 936i, 937, 937i, 1182, 1182iii, 1376, 1376c. A "similar but different" offering of 1972-1995 high-value definitive plate block duos (and one trio), each being different from their similar looking counterpart by either printer or plate number. These "look-alikes" have gained extra traction over the years, with collectors looking to find these "extras" after completing the basic issues of the sets. Face value alone is $128.00. 2024 Unitrade = $432.50
History

102
Canada #656, 657. VF mint Never Hinged matched sets of inscription corner blocks of the 1975 "Olympic Sculpures" high-values including the $1.00 "Sprinter" and $2.00 "Plunger". Post Office fresh and nice to get both matched sets at once. 2024 Unitrade = $180.00
History

VF mint Never Hinged complete PANES of 8, in all four different plate inscription positions for the 1976 high-value "Olympic Sites" $1.00 Notre-Dame and Place Ville Marie / $2.00 Olympic Stadium.

History

104
Canada #687/688. VF mint Never Hinged matched sets of inscription corner blocks of the 1976 "Olympic Sites" high-values featuring the $1.00 Notre-Dame and Place Ville Marie and $2.00 Olympic Stadium. Both sets of inscription corner blocks are still sealed in the original Canada Post packaging. Getting these still-sealed packs is getting tougher. 2024 Unitrade = $230.00
History

105
Canada #688, 688i. VF mint Never Hinged matched sets of inscription corner blocks of the 1976 "Olympic Sites" $2.00 Olympic Stadium high-value in both the Unitrade listed "dull" and "florescent" papers (the only two paper listings for this stamp).

History

106
Canada #730a. VF mint Never Hinged imperforate pairs of the 14c red Parliament coil stamp. One of the ever-popular QEII imperforate varieties of the time, this one being one of the most reasonably priced in the catalogue. 2024 Unitrade = $225.00

Listed as #790 G2aC on the QEII adminware database (given an adminware catalogue value of $25 per stamp, $100 per block). Total adminware catalogue value would come in at $2000.00! Estimate = $200.00
History

108
Canada #926A. VF selection of 100 VF mint Never Hinged examples of the short lived 1987 issue 36c plum QEII definitive, including 15 corner blocks (these don't come with inscriptions). This issue was delayed repeatedly (from May 6, 1987) due to production difficulties and not released until near the end of the 36c rate period. Thus, this value was current for just three months, during which time the 1987 Christmas stamps would have seen most of the usage. A clean and increasingly scarce investment group. 2024 Unitrade = $460.00
History

109

One of the most popular issues of each year due to the large format, "shiny" printing and Canadian Art imagery. Finding these complete sheets is getting tougher each year. A total of 12 sheets. Face value alone is $140.32. 2024 Unitrade = $429.00
History

112
Canada #1250ii. Lower right position Very Fine mint Never Hinged inscription block of four of the 1989 issue 38c Regiments commemorative.

History

114
Canada #1764b. VF mint Never Hinged example of the 1998 issue 45c Xmas Angel in the very rare perf 13.1 x 13.6. Unitrade states that fewer than 500 mint examples of #1764b are known. 2024 Unitrade = $500.00

History

118
Canada #1972. Wholesale offering of 5 VF mint Never Hinged panes of the 2003 NHL All Stars issue. This is the "good pane" with a substantial catalogue value over the other Hockey issues of this era. Perfect for the investor or show/online dealer. 2024 Unitrade = $450.00

History

121
Canada #2479-2482 Panes. Complete mint Never Hinged complete panes of 16 stamps for each of 2011 "Canadian Recording Artists" series of 4 stamps. We seldom see these panes, as only 160,000 were printed of each as compared to more often seen souvenir sheet or booklets panes, which had 1,105,000 issued combined. Overlooked by many at the time of issue, these complete panes now listed in the Unitrade catalogue and are not quite hard to find 12+ years past issue date. We offered a set of these a couple months back, this being only the 2nd complete set we have handled. 2024 Unitrade = $300.00
History

122
Canada #2586. Complete Canada Post thank you "kit" consisting of a small presentation box containing two VF condition intact mint examples of the limited edition booklet of 12 of the permanent "THANKS/MERCI!" Truck and Rainbow design Picture Postage stamp, issued on November 30th 2020, ONLY TO CANADA POST EMPLOYEES, plus a thank you card and matching rainbow pin. The booklets are very elusive. While recognized and reviewed in numerous philatelic journals, Unitrade has yet to create an individual listing for this stamp, so we have used the Unitrade catalogue number for the frame design as our stamp reference. Two booklets are perfect for display purposes (front and back). Estimate = $100.00
History

123

History

127
Canada #BK8c. Complete Admiral booklet which contains a pair of 3c panes, with a red coloured cover and the inside slogans having small capitals. Clean corners, no bends, no pencil markings.

History

130

Only a bit of minor duplication, and over 95% are fault free. Great collection or stock builder. Estimate = $300.00
History

131
Canada #BK32a/BC33b. Eight complete 1c and 2c King George VI "War" issue booklets. Unbelievable condition for being 80 years old, with only a bit of normal minor staple oxidation.

History

136
Canada #BK106, BK106 High Florescence. Two complete booklets panes of the 1989 "Greet More" Christmas stamps, one booklet with the regular LF paper and the other with the much tougher to find HF paper. While someone put a piece of tape on the HF booklet to repair an opening, the stamps are unscathed and we have valued the HF booklet as the pane only. A tough modern Christmas booklet! 2024 Unitrade = $220.00
History

137
Canada #BK156/BK180. A baker's dozen (13) all-different complete booklets from the 1992-1994 Fruit Tree definitive series.

History

139

It should be noted, these semi-official airmail stamps had to be used in conjunction with regular Canadian postage, with one of these covers bearing a late use of the 1898 Map Stamp, addressed to notable Canadian Philatelist L.A.Davenport. An attractive pair of covers. 2024 Unitrade = $200.00

The first part consists of an extensive mostly mint selection of hundreds of neatly organized and laid out Commonwealth country/colony sets and singles with particular strength in Australia, New Zealand and Grenada but with very decent representation of dozens of other countries from all areas of the globe. Also of note is a two volume Stanley Gibbons GB album containing hundreds of mint and used stamps, 1841 to 1984 period issues. The GB collection is a bit sparse in the earlier material but still contains a good number of $100.00+ catalogue value singles. The modern section is much more comprehensive and consists of almost all mint sets. Significant total catalogue value and a rewarding range of British Colonial material to boot! Estimate =

In order of appearance: Great Britain issues up to 2010 (over £60 face value), West Indies, Falklands, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Gilbert and Ellice Islands, Disney (a number of different colonies), Tanzania, Fiji, Ascension, Pitcairn, etc. There is even a roll of Tonga banana issue #225 (over $200.00 catalogue value alone).

British Guiana #17/299. Great collection for the specialist, with strength in Queen Victoria era issues. Great range of "Seal of the Colony", but keep a critical eye as a few of the items are obvious forgeries (which we haven’t counted). There are revaluations, officials overprinted and "Specimen" perforated stamps repurposed for usage. The KGV, KGVI and early QEII issues are more used than mint, but often include used examples of the higher values. Bit of duplication, and a small page of cards and glassines which are not counted in the owner’s catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$2259.00 =

Burma - An assortment of a few hundred stamps on several pages and about 100 covers, create this somewhat messy but interesting assortment of material filling a small box.
