87 Canada #459, 468A. Incredible specialized collection of the 6c orange Centennial issue, carefully identified on the black album pages for paper fluorescence, ink fluorescence varieties, Winnipeg tagging and especially for the very many constant plate varieties that can be found on this issue. A flyspecker's paradise, with most of the CPVs annotated in detail including the plate positions. Usually with multiple confirming examples, these have a value of $5 each in Harris' Centennial issue handbook, and are undoubtedly the result of myriad hours combing through stamps. Also includes 13 Vario pages with singles on piece organized by cancel or off paper. A total of 1575 stamps plus one used counterfeit single with a total combined Unitrade/Harris retail value = $1,857.00 $110.00

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 $75.00
91 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 = $225.00 $48.00

110 Canada - Annual Collections for 1980-2016 inclusive plus the Millennium edition souvenir book (38 books in total). Although none of the books have the original shrink wrap, or are Post Office sealed, we have checked them to confirm that they are all complete with stamps. These books are the best way to collect modern issues and the books are a treasure trove of information on the mint issues that the books contain. Total face value of the MNH stamps contained in the books is $1340.40. 2022 Unitrade = $3,117.00 $250.00

Of interest (shown in image 13,18,19) are pages of modern replica / forged stamps of Canada / Newfoundland (including $ value Jubilees). Estimate = $250.00 $270.00
113 Canada - Collection in Three Unity Albums. Mint and used 1870s to 2004 period Canada collection housed in a trio of Unity brand albums, consisting of many hundreds of different stamps and souvenir sheets. Sparsely populated and in very mixed condition in the earlies, with more completion and higher quality as it gets into the more recent material. There's probably around $50.00 in useable postage in the lot as some items that are particularly hard to find in used condition have been collected in mint condition. This collection will prove useful to the collector needing the more modern material in decent used condition. Estimate = $200.00 $80.00
114 Canada - Massive used stock filling a U-Haul moving box, consisting of a small box full of thousands of stamps sorted in envelopes, stockpages and stockbooks filled including blocks and Back of the Book, one 16 double-side page stockbook stuffed with approximately 2,800 copies of #135 and 2 chocolate boxes of bundleware.

And, as a bonus the 'Sweet Treats' 2019 set issue used, and the 2020 'From Far and Wide' high value definitives used, with the $1.94 and $2.71 each in two different colour shades! These latest issues are so hard to find used. Estimate = $150.00 $44.00
117 Canada - Precancel Selection. Lightly duplicated group of 64 early precancelled stamps, ranging from bar/roller types on Small Queens up through various town/city types on Edwards, GeoV Admirals, Scrolls and Medallions.

Estimate = $300.00 $140.00
120 Canada - Supplies. A somewhat sparsely populated SET of SIX Scott Specialty albums (with matching slipcases) for Canada 1851-2019. Although there are several hundred stamps hinged throughout, the real draw to this lot is the reasonably used set of albums, which would retail for over $800 alone! These attractive green Scott International albums have been a staple of collectors around the globe for decades. The pages appear to be complete, but we have not fully checked the run (although blank Scott pages can be easily ordered to add where you like). Some of the pages need tidying up, but with a bit of work (note the pages in the later albums are out of order), these albums will be ready to handsomely display your Canadian collection. Estimate = $350.00 $95.00

VF+ example of the rare and extremely popular 1980 issue "Year of the Monkey" Lunar New Year stamp on an unaddressed, cacheted, premium "red cancel" First Day Cover.

Back of the Book collection on 9 Scott album pages, mint hinged and NH including mixed sets such as #C46-C56 where the key top values are NH. The Hindenburg Zeppelin set #C57-C58 retains the dark brown original gum which is notable as many collectors have since removed the gum, which contains sulphuric acid, in an attempt to preserve the paper. 188 stamps nearly all in mounts. 2021 Scott US$1196.55 = $1,615.30 $16.00
253 Germany #C29/C64, MC1, MQ2, OL1-OL20, P1-P2, S1-S22.

The Third Reich swastika issues include the noteworthy 50pf dark green top value. None of the "Dienstmarke" overprints have expertization marks and there are notes in the margin regarding the high values indicating that #O46 is a fake (thus not counted). Forged overprints exist and so sold "as is" though most of the important items in this valuable collection had a solid provenance. 2021 Scott US$2312.60 = $3,122.00 $11.00
257 Germany - A collector's mildly duplicated collection on home-made pages filling a 3-inch binder. A sorter's delight with a bit of everything form German States to modern and almost everything between. Likely a couple thousand stamps here, with both mint and (mostly) used. The previous owner believed that the catalogue value was over US$4800, which is possible, but we found it safer to assess and estimate the lot. Potential lurks for the intrepid collector on this one. Estimate = $250.00 $11.00
258 Germany - Several hundred stamps, neatly arranged and organized on old dealer stock "102" cards being only BOB (back-of-the-book) Semi Postal and Official stamps.

324 Jersey #4/639, J1-J46, N1-N8. Mint and 99% NH nearly complete collection for the 1943 to 1993 period, neatly laid out in a Stanley Gibbons padded hingeless album. A total of 675 stamps, 7 souvenir sheets and 1 booklet. Sadly, the top of the album has split and the first page has had the mounts react (likely) with the plastic softener of the inner album witch has caused the mount to shrink / adhere to the stamp. It is possible that these stamps could be salvaged, but we did not count in them in the total and would leave it as-is for the purchaser to do as they please. Besides that, a very clean lot. 2022 Scott US$536.35 = $724.07 $42.00
325 Korea - Over 220 stamps, neatly arranged on old dealer stock "102" cards from the late 19th century to the 1970's Duplicated in areas and with some faults noted, these cards were originally catalogued in 2006 by the previous owner. Owner's much older 2006 Scott US$391.00 = $527.85 $12.00

328 Macao #2/28. Used sets and singles of 1884-87 issues with the "Portuguese Crown" design and surcharges. The 80r on 100r circle surcharge is #16b without the accent on the "e" and has a thin. 2021 Scott US$309.00 = $417.15 $11.00

Amateurishly mounted but otherwise clean and F/VF condition 1950s to 1980s period collection/selection of stamps (mostly regular and airmail issues) plus First Day Covers and Maximum Cards. All housed in two binders. Completely unchecked for catalogue value but there are almost always "sleepers" for watermarks or perfs in this time period. Most of the mint stamps are in blocks of four. Take a good look at the scans! Looks like a fun sorting project for the both the Mexico and topical collector. Estimate = $200.00 $10.00

Clean and neatly mounted mint Hinged and used 1873 to 1975 period collection of regular, semi-postal, airmail, airmail semi-postal and postage due stamps, all still mounted on the original album pages. While not complete, this lot is usefully comprehensive with a good number of complete sets and better values in the mix. An informative look into the Dutch colonial influence, both past and present in the Caribbean area. Note that the stamps laid out on the Hagner stock sheet have been transferred from the original album pages for safety (they were loose). 2022 Scott US$1,071.80= $1,446.93 $17.00

An enlightening look into the Dutch colonial past in the present-day country of Indonesia and a difficult group to assemble. Note that the stamps laid out on the Hagner stock sheet have been transferred from the original album pages for safety (they were loose). They were valued when they were still on the album pages so the individual page totals may occasionally be out of line. 2022 Scott US$1,554.60= $2,098.71 $22.00
338 New Zealand #9/118. Two stock page offering of 99 duplicated used 1857 to 1907 period issues. Widely varied quality noted and as such the consignor has listed but not valued any (most) of the more damaged material. Unchecked for varieties or cancels. A decent study lot. Owner's 2021 Scott US$1,062.00= $1,434.92 $13.00
339 New Zealand #122-125. Christchurch Exhibition issue mint, hinged. Rough perforations are normal for this issue, thus a few short perfs. Wee tiny perf stain on back of 1/2d, otherwise a rarely seen and beautiful set! 2022 Scott US$461.00 = $622.35 $110.00
340 New Zealand #126-129. The perf 14 x 15 small size set of three mint hinged VF centred, plus the redrawn 1d 'Commerce' mint hinged fine centred. A really scarce group! 2022 Scott US$420.00 = $567.00 $19.00

347 North Viet Nam #1L2/1L61. Wonderfully fresh and comprehensive (nearly complete) mint run of the 1945-1946 Viet Minh provisional issues, mostly overprints on issues of French Indo-China. 62 different stamps in total.

348 Oltre Giuba #J1-J9. Nearly complete fresh mint Hinged set of the rare 1925 issue overprinted Postage Dues, missing only the 5 lire high value. The 60c value has a pulled corner perf, otherwise a sound and scarce group. 2022 Scott Classic US$395.00= $533.25 $15.00

351 Russia - A collection (lightly duplicated) of Mint and Used, laid out on home-made album pages in TWO 2-inch binders. A diverse offering, from early issues up the 1990's (with a few even more modern). The previous owner reports that the Scott catalogue value is over US$3200.00, but further work is needed to properly identify the earlier issues and much of the modern "used" is CTO cancelled to order material. A nice lot to sit down and sort out over a weekend. Estimate = $140.00 $12.00

355 Spain #605A-605F "MUESTRA" Overprints. The famous 1938 issue "Submarine Mail" set of six in F/VF mint NH condition. These stamps were intended for use on a proposed submarine mail route from Barcelona to Mahon (Minorca). This particular "MUESTRA" (specimen/sample) overprinted set was sent by Spanish and UPU officials as a sample of current Spanish issues to Postmasters of foreign post offices.

361 Switzerland #C1/C45. Accumulation of Airmail issues along with 2 album pages of stamps on piece with pictorial airmail cancels. The early 1919 and 1920 issues are uncertified and likely have forged overprints and/or cancels, though they are attractive and useful spacefillers at the very least. 127 mint and used stamps in total. Estimate = $240.00 $22.00
362 Switzerland - A somewhat messy accumulation of mint and used stamps and souvenir sheets going back to the early imperf Sitting Helvetia issues, including 3 stamps (Scott #64 and #65) expertized and signed with accompanying certificates from Werner Liniger and Walter Abt. The Classic issues of this country present a pleasantly challenging area with many (sometimes) subtle varieties in the paper, gum and perforations. Lot also includes a mostly empty set of Scott Specialty pages to 1951, and when all tallied this will surely have an impressive catalogue value. Estimate = $300.00 $15.00
363 Switzerland - Two-volume collection of mint and used 1855-1983 issues in Minkus albums containing over 1,000 stamps and 1 S/S with many complete sets and high values. Ample room for expansion on these high-quality pages. Estimate = $220.00 $26.00

365 Thailand - An array of 114 First Day Covers or Special Event Cancel covers from the 1957-1995 period. This interesting offering features many of the attractive stamp sets of the period.

Estimate = $100.00 $10.00
366 Togo - An absolutely incredible run of 8 Palo albums, giving the run of stamps of Togo from 1897-2010. Several hundred mint and used stamps scattered throughout (see pictures). Note the pages as produced by PALO have full colour examples printed on the album pages, so look closely to determine which stamps have been placed over-top, and which are just part of the printed page. Easily one of the nicest set of albums we have ever handled in the past few years, with a good run of issues already in-place giving you a hefty foot-in-the door to collecting this popular West African Nation. Estimate = $650.00 $60.00
367 Tonga #1172/1244. A choice group of 29 different mint NH souvenir sheets and miniature panes from the 2012-2014 period on stock-sheets within a binder. A nice array of topicals, being much more recent material than we usually see from this country. 2023 Scott US$508.75 = $686.81 $24.00

Although the majority of the stamps in this album are hinged, the highest value set (Vietnam #1-13, catalogue US$250.00) is Mint Never-Hinged. A great foot-in-the-door to collecting this very popular country. Total 2022 Scott US$1616.05 = $2,181.67 $200.00
373 Virgin Islands #21-28 SPECIMEN. Fresh and VF condition 1899 "Virgin Mary" set of eight, all with "SPECIMEN" overprints in black. Listed in the Stanley Gibbons catalogue as #43s/50s. Stanley Gibbons £190.00= $309.00 $12.00
