78 Canada #1534ii. VF mint NH lower left position inscription block of four of the unissued 1992 Xmas 52c rate stamp.

A very rare modern variety inscription block. 2017 Unitrade. $950.00 $16.00

These examples of the rare recalled $7.20 self-adhesive booklet of six x $1.20 stamps each include two of the mis-identified "Hoodoos" stamps. Withdrawn from post offices in a panic by Canada Post, not many reached private hands. This booklet duo will be perfect for exhibition and display, as the wrong "Hoodoo" is also illustrated on the booklet cover. Estimate $150.00 $40.00
85 Canada #C1-C9. Fresh and VF mint NH complete set of 1928-1948 airmail issues. A very attractive quality mint run. Unitrade is $405.25 for a VF mint NH set. 2018 Scott US$215.00= $268.75 $60.00

This signed "Duck" booklet is listed in Unitrade and was listed in the 2005 Darnell catalogue but was not listed in the Van Dam catalogue (probably due to a typo) until the latest 2017 edition. The signed booklet is accompanied by a regular unsigned booklet for comparison. According to both Unitrade and Van Dam, this is the second best artist signed booklet (after the Bateman signed #FWH1d). The catalogue value total here is for both booklets. 2017 Unitrade. $125.00 $10.00
92 Canada #J1-5, J6-J10, J11-J14, J15-J20 plus extras. Mint H/NH (plus one no gum #J3) complete run of all the 1906 to 1965 period "purple postage dues", plus a few extras for shades and papers.

102 Canada #UX427. UNESCO Hoodoo Postcard Stamp Error. Ultra rare recalled 2015 UNESCO Dinosaur Park Canada postal stationery picture post card, depicting the wrong Hoodoos image. This dramatic and popular error stamp was released in the form of booklets, souvenir sheets, First Day Covers and prepaid international rate postcards. This postcard is the by far the rarest form of the error, as very few postal outlets carry this type of product and only a handful escaped the recall at the Canada Post National Philatelic Centre. The official recall was made less than 48 hours after the stamp release. It is estimated that as few as 25 examples of these post card errors made it into the hands of a few very lucky collectors (who had standing orders for pre-paid postcards) before the Post Office doors slammed shut.

His limited edition 1972 book has become the basis for numerous more recent works and is a "must have" tome for any serious BC postal historian. This book is numbered #340. We usually only get this book for sale every couple of years. But a couple have recently "come out of the woodwork" due to the interest expressed by clients bidding on our bidboard.
