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 and we've only just begun offering any for sale. 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 = $200.00 $120.00
121 Canada #2793i. VF MNH $2.50 Red Kelly AUTOGRAPHED "hockey card" format S/S from the 2014 NHL "Original Six" issue, with the silver foil holographic Canada Post sticker of authenticity. With only 500 produced and considering that Red Kelly passed away in 2019 these cards have proven very popular with stamp and hockey card collectors alike. The italicized Unitrade value remains a woeful attempt at pricing for these signed limited-edition cards. 2023 Unitrade is $225.00, but these cards regularily sell for above that. Estimate = $300.00 $350.00

Material includes regular and back of the book postal issues, revenues, overprints, Gibbons listed items etc. Noted mint blocks and decent cancels in the mix.

258 France #1O29/1O62, 2O29/2O58. VF mint NH selection of "Conseil de L'Europe" and "UNESCO" issues, almost exclusively complete sets and usually four examples of each. Often overlooked "Back of the Book" issues, these stamps produced for use by these two internationally important organizations are much more for legitimate official use than their United Nations counterparts. 2023 Scott US$331.60= $414.50 $36.00
259 France #2101/3168. Comprehensive but not quite complete selection of Scott listed pre-cancels, 1993 to 2005 period, all in complete sets of VF mint NH blocks of four (a couple of blocks split into pairs). Note that the 1992 "Musical Instrument" set consists of the perf 12 x 12 type of the 1.60fr Guitar (#2273a). A very difficult group to assemble, including some better issues.

Estimate = $400.00 $350.00
263 France - Modern Mint Collection. MNH collection, running from 1976 to 2000, all housed in two Lighthouse SF (Hingeless) albums, one with slipcase.

273 Germany #1/136. A comprehensive collection of 187 stamps laid out on four stock pages, mint H and (mainly) used, from the 1872 to 1920 period. Includes most of the catalogued colour varieties and all in much better than average condition but the odd fault will still be found. Very nearly complete except for a few high values. The two imperforate stamps from the first issues are not valued as they are likely cut squares but they are in perfect condition and clearly demonstrate the two embossed centres, i.e. the Small and Large Shields. Owner's 2019 Scott US$1,769.75= $2,212.19 $100.00
274 Germany #323/386, B8/B46.

276 Germany #B68. VF centered unused souvenir sheet of 4, "OSTROPA 1935" watermarked issue. Some light staining away from stamps. As the gum on this issue contains sulphuric acid and tends to damage the sheet, most have had the gum removed; the Scott catalogue value is for an ungummed sheet. 2021 Scott US$975.00 = $1,218.75 $90.00
277 Germany #B104, B106. VF MNH 1937 issue pair of souvenir sheets with marginal inscriptions on the se-tenant labels, perforated 14 around stamps and rouletted into the margins. The sheet with "Reichsparteitag / Nurnberg 1937" overprint has some fingerprints on gum as well as nearly imperceptible handling bends.

278 Germany #C27-C37. Very fresh mint 1926-27 and 1928-31 Airmail sets. The "German Eagle" set of 8 shows 7 stamps with only the barest trace of hinging at the extreme upper right corner - at first AND second glances they appear NH - and the "Graf Zeppelin Crossing Ocean" set off 3 has hinged full OG. Consider that the price of a NH set of #C27-C34 increases nearly 8 times to $900 and this is an uncommon opportunity to acquire a virtually NH set without the corresponding premium. 2021 Scott US$205.85 = $257.30 $70.00
279 Germany - Collections in Albums and on Pages. Neatly organized group of collections, all housed in high quality Lindner or Lighthouse albums or on loose album pages.

280 Germany - German States Collection. Offered intact as received original old-time collection of pre-Unification German States, all Hinged on trimmed quadrille pages. Noted mint and used stamps as well as some reprints and forgeries in the mix. The overall quality seems pretty decent and the range of material is respectable but expect some faulty stamps in an unpicked lot of this type. Assembled in Europe (Italy) a long time ago. High total catalogue value but take a very good look at the high quality scans to determine the quality, authenticity and value for yourself. Estimate = $500.00 $280.00
281 Germany - MNH collection of full and part sheets in two sheet files, mainly from the turn of the 20th century to the inflationary period of the mid-1920's. Just shy of 3000 stamps in total including Back of the Book issues.Estimate= $150.00 $48.00

285 Great Britain #1 to Recent Plus Extras. Meaty and valuable balance of thousands of stamps from an extensive almost all used GB collection/accumulation in stock books, on album pages, envelopes and loose. Expect some faults in the mix but this lot represents a very rewarding goldmine sorting project for the student of GB philately. Saw a decent range of early imperfs, covers, Victorian, Edwardian and GeoV values to 10sh, lots of "Penny Reds" to plate, Offices and Officials and lots more, with enough total catalogue to have you humming "Rule Britannia" for weeks. Well worth the investment at the conservative estimate. Estimate = $1,500.00 $2,750.00

Also includes a used group of perforated Scott design type A1 Penny Reds (x 37), unchecked for perfs, papers, plates or re-engraving. Quite a few faulty stamps noted but this is still an excellent reference/study lot for the "plater" or variety hunter. Huge theoretical catalogue value. Estimate= $150.00 $120.00
289 Great Britain #22/48. Almost all used (2 x #58 mint) 1855 to 1870 period collection of 35 stamps, all mounted on two hand-drawn quadrille album pages.
