Bid
1 Antigua #38, 41. Fine/Very Fine mint Hinged examples of the 1912 issue 2sh violet and green "Seal of the Colony" (watermark 3) and 1913 issue 5sh violet and green GeoV high values. 2024 Scott US210.00 = $283.50 $32.00
2 Australia #1/255. All used and all different collection of 187 almost all different 1913 to 1953 period issues, all neatly laid out on Hagner brand stocksheets. Nice mix of Kangaroos, George Heads and commemoratives. 2024 Scott US$949.85 = $1,282.30 $10.00
3 Australia #18. Fresh and Fine mint 3 Hinged/1 Never Hinged block of four of the 1914 issue 6p lake brown "Kookaburra". This is the first Australian "Bird" topical! 2024 US$460.00 = $621.00 $65.00
4 Australia #66-76. Complete mint Lightly Hinged set of the 1926-1930 George V "Heads" issue. Vibrant colours throughout, a very respectable set edging towards 100 years old! 2024 Scott US$270.75 = $365.50 $75.00
5 Australia - Small filing card box with a fascinating mixture of 20th century issues, haphazardly sorted into glassine envelopes and then put in the box in a seemingly random order. There is some obvious value and other potential value throughout. The obvious is modern face value, including 1990’s complete booklets - about A$85.00 in face value. There are also a number of glassines with mint issues 1980-1995 - conservatively estimating A$100.00 face value. There is some earlier material, like mint Explorers to 75c and revalued 5c on 4c QEII booklet panes which could help round out your collection. If you are looking for potential, there is a small handful of King George V "Heads" envelopes holding wholesale used quantities perfect for hunting down cancels or printing flaws. We noted a bit of similar material from the Aussie States too, plus there are glassines with mint and used covering everything in between. It will require your patience to pull this all apart to make sense of it. Estimate = $140.00 $11.00
6 Barbados #70, 193a, 290/584. Very Fine mint Never Hinged duplicated selection/stock, all housed in one fat green stock book, all blocks of four or souvenir sheets. Apart from a couple of individual early blocks, the stock consists of almost all complete sets from the 1966 to 1982 period. A very useful lot for the Barbados or British Commonwealth dealer. 2024 Scott US$876.95 = $1,183.90 $10.00
7 Barbados #94, 193b. Two better definitive issues in mint Never Hinged blocks of four consisting of the 1904-1910 issue 1p carmine (wmk 3) and the rare perf 14 x 14 printing of the 1938-1947 GeoVI issue ½p green. Rare and superior quality multiples of key issues. 2024 Scott US$430.00 = $580.50 $10.00
8 Barbados - Postmark / Postal History based collection. An interesting array of postmarks, postal history and literature as compiled by a studious collector. Includes over 100 cancels on stamps (including many numeral cancels on the earlier issues), a half-dozen covers or postcards, a study group of the "One Cent" overprinted issues and a 1984 "Postal Censorship in Barbados…" handbook. While the condition is a bit mixed on the earlier material (selected primarily for postmarks), the group overall is very high-quality. It would take many years to assemble something of this nature. Estimate = $250.00 $10.00
9 Belgium #1/316 plus semi-postals and parcel post. First century collection from 1849-1941 on KA-BE album pages. A total of 526 different stamps, some of the better ones arranged by the collector in black mounts. Noted better sets and singles throughout, including a couple nice looking King Leopold I and II issues, a number of nice tabs, #121 with a CDS cancel, a mint 1925 "75th anniversary" set. The "back of the book" includes nice sets of B28-B33, B69-B75 and a decent batch of early parcel post/railway stamp issues. Condition looks solid and many of the used have clean readable cancels. Estimate = $200.00 $55.00
10 Belgium #108-122, 122 Shade. Complete used set of the 1915-1920 Albert I / Pictorial issue, series of 15 stamps, with an extra example of the 5fr key-value in a slightly lighter shade. An attractive offering. 2024 Scott US$276.05 = $372.65 $10.00
11 Bermuda - King George VI "Keyplates" from the 2/- to £1 denomination, awaiting the specialists eye. The stamps in the top row are perf 13, the balance are perf 14, including the two still on-piece. Both 2/6 values have paper adhesion that should easily soak off. The three high values are fresh, well centered and have the lightest of light Hinging. These stamps were selected for their different shades, but we are counting them as the cheapest by Scott, so plenty of upside here (especially if using a Gibbons catalogue). Total 2023 Scott US$463.00 = $625.05 $38.00
12 Bosnia #45l. The 5k Franz Joseph high value with the compound perforation (perf 9 1/4 at the bottom, perf 10 1/2 at the left and top and perf 12 1/2 at the right). Fresh mint, well centered. Small, unobtrusive hinge remnant and bit of album offset on back. One of the key values, and an eye-catching stamp. 2021 Scott Classic US$625.00 = $843.75 $0.00
13 British Commonwealth - British Pacific and Antarctic Colonies collections in pair of Stanley Gibbons springback albums (one a green "Senator" the other a red "Utile" - retail over $150.00 for the empty albums alone). Includes Australian (Australian Antarctic Territories, Cocos (Keeling), Nauru, Christmas Islands) and New Zealand (Cook Islands, Niue, Tokelau, Ross Dependency, Penrhyn Islands, Samoa) administered colonies. Most are mint, many of the sets are complete, all housed in black mounts on quadrilled pages (expect the mint to be Hinged, but post 1975 most appears to be Never Hinged). The earlier tend to be a little sparse, but there is good value amongst what is there. Noted some nice overprints on New Zealand stamps, as well as many first sets being represented and the usual attractive topical coverage. A few hundred stamps in total, fresh and well-organized. Estimate = $250.00 $20.00
14 British Commonwealth - Cayman Islands #162-167, Falkland Island Dependencies #1L28-1L33. Top quality Very Fine mint Never Hinged high values from two early QEII pictorial sets, consisting of the 1sh to £1 high values from the 1962 issue Cayman Islands engraved bi-colour set and the 1sh to £1 high values from the 1954 Falkland Island Dependencies "Ships" set. Unusual to get the top ends of sets instead of the usual low values! Will these stamps complete some collector's album page? 2024 Scott US$194.95 = $263.20 $10.00

A representative collection from these popular and attractive island issues covering the 1895-1953 period. Mainly mint Hinged but many used as well (some both). The fifteen Samoa "EXPRESS" stamps, shown the last page, are not included in the valuation. While there may be one or two genuine stamps in this group it will take an expert to comment on these. 2024 Scott US$451.65 = $609.75 $30.00
22 British Commonwealth - Southern Hemisphere / Pacific Islands Mint Collection. A pristine 16-page Unisafe stockbook, filled with mint singles / sets and souvenir sheets (almost entirely Never Hinged).

Fascinating material, with a history lesson at each turn of the page. Estimate = $200.00 $60.00
25 Burma - Japanese Occupation - First intoxicating group of 21 different "Peacock" overprints on Burmese stamps and officials. Nice condition and lightly hinged and a couple are "signed" by the "President". Don’t let appearances fool you as the footnote in Gibbons states: "Collectors are warned against forgeries of these overprints, often in the wrong colours or on the wrong values". This lot includes denominations, officials and revalues for which these overprints were never recorded. There are double overprints (including in different colour ink), inverts, one overprinted in red on the gum side, and black on the other. We are presuming that these are all forgeries and are a bargain at less than $10.00 apiece. With the original album page. Estimate = $160.00 $22.00
26 Burma - Japanese Occupation - Second offering of 21 different "Peacock" overprints on Burmese stamps and officials. Nice condition and Lightly Hinged and one is "signed" by the "President".

28 Canada #2, 5. Used examples of the 1851 issue 6p slate violet Prince Albert imperf on vertically laid paper and the 1855 issue 6p slate grey imperf on wove paper.

The last and highest quality group of 24 used 1c Victorias from the 1859 "First Cents" issue, carefully selected from an old-time hoard that we've been selling over the past few bidboards. Unchecked for shades, papers, perfs or plate varieties. Generally sound and Fine/Very Fine, but expect the odd small fault in a lot of this type. Note a nice range of legible CDS postmarks, coloured cancels and fresh four margin stamps. A great superior quality assemblage of these popular classics, perfect for the student of early Canadian issues. All valued as the basic (and least expensive) type by Scott catalogue. 2024 Scott US$2,160.00 = $2,916.00 $22.00

34 Canada #15. Unpicked and unresearched old-time "offered as received" group of 29 x the 1859 issue 5c "Beaver", all still hinged on the original quadrille album page.

35 Canada #15/199, C1-C9, CE1-CE4 plus other Back of the Book. Collector's used stock from 1859-1932 neatly arranged within envelopes sorted by catalogue number within a small box. While somewhat sparse in the QV period (likely less than 100 stamps), the group then "gains steam" by the Edwards before being full-bore into the Admirals and George V issues, with likely a couple thousand stamps in total. Strength in the Admirals, George V, "Back of the Book" issues (including 5 examples each of the 50c Bluenose #128 / $1.00 Parliament #159).

Expect the mint to be Hinged (a couple no-gum), but overall condition is quite good. Owner's approximate Unitrade catalogue value is over $1100.00 which looks reasonable to us. Estimate = $150.00 $13.00
38 Canada #21, 21a, 21c plus Varieties. Selection of ten used ½c Large Queens, including perf 12 x 12 and 11½ x 12 perf types. Noted a wide range of papers but all valued as the regular paper type.

The other two stamps are Very Fine with very light cancels. A very useful offering. 2024 Unitrade $1,050.00 = $1,417.50 $15.00
43 Canada #23, 23a Study Group. All used selection of nine x 1c yellow orange and seven x deep orange Large Queens, generally in sound and Fine condition (expect the odd small fault).

All conservatively valued as the basic Scott listed stamps. 2024 Scott US$3,545.00 = $4,785.75 $90.00
44 Canada #23/30 Two-Ring Group. Used group of 56 Large Queens, 1c to 30c values. All selected for the 2-ring numeral cancels (some more legible than others).

45 Canada #24 Reference Lot/Calendar Collection. Carefully researched and precisely identified study of 42 used examples of the 2c green Large Queen. All sorted for shades, perfs and papers.

The lot includes clearly dated 1868-1872 period CDS cancels as well as Unitrade listed varieties. All valued as basic stamps by Scott Classic catalogue. A useful reference lot. 2024 Scott Classic US$4,200.00 = $5,670.00 $120.00

49 Canada #25 Trial Colour Plate Proof. Rare trial colour proof on card of the 3c Large Queen, in a shade of red very close to the issued colour. These proofs were "working proofs", used to clean up any plate flaws and to use as colour keys for the printers. This proof was most likely placed in a printer's production binder (note glue residue on the corners of the reverse). Typical small faults at right noted for the record (small tear, surface scuff, adhesive residue). Listed in "The Essays & Proofs of British North America" by Minuse & Pratt as catalogue #26P9.

61 Canada #29v. Fine used example of the 15c dull purple 1868 Large Queen printed on the distinctive Bothwell (but not watermarked) paper. A useful Large Queen reference item. 2024 Unitrade = $150.00 $22.00

65 Canada #35/1228 plus Back of the Book. A "better than average" starter collection on CWS colour pages (up to 1988) with collector-added black mounts. A mix of mint and used up to QEII, with used Small Queens to 10c, 1c-5c Jubilees and a couple of attractive mint Admiral coils. The GeoV and GeoVI issues are fairly complete, missing only a few random items, with the higher value items typically being used. The Elizabethan era is fairly complete for basic issues, with the higher denominated stamps. The "back of the book" features a decent showing of airmail, special delivery and postage dues. Overall condition is a bit mixed, with the mint early issues are typically hinged (as usual) but there are Never Hinged (including mid-range values) to be found throughout, shifting to almost all Never Hinged for the Elizabethan issues. Besides having a good catalogue value, the face value of the modern issues will add up quickly. Housed in a three ring binder, that could use replacing. Estimate = $250.00 $10.00

Ancient large format and obesely fat 2-post binder packed with many thousands of organized, sound, fresh and Fine/Very Fine used stamps, ranging from mid-19th century (1c Small Queens) up to mid-20th century (4c Alexander MacKenzie) issues, also including "Back of the Book" material (Airmails & Special Deliveries).

70 Canada #45. Group of 9x 10c Small Queens from the 1889-1897 "Ottawa Printing", each selected for interesting or unusual cancellations (including one pair). An interesting variety of cancels here from the period, which would take considerable time to find an acquire a group this large. A couple with small faults, but overall a very clean offering. 2024 Scott US$585.00 = $789.75 $10.00
71 Canada #45. Mint Glazed Gum example of the 1896-1897 printed 10c brown red Queen Victoria Small Queen. A fresh stamp, which in our opinion is likely Never Hinged, but valued as Hinged due to the gum glazing. Great colour, a very pretty stamp. 2024 Scott US$625.00 = $843.75 $10.00
72 Canada #45a. Fine mint Hinged example of the 1890-1897, 2nd "Ottawa Printing" 10c deep dull rose Queen Victoria Small Queen. A fresh mint single, in a pleasing shade. 2024 Scott US$600.00 = $810.00 $10.00
73 Canada #46. Well centered mint Hinged example of the 1893-1897 Queen Victoria 20c Widow Weeds issue. Fresh colour and attractive gum (light natural gum bend mentioned for the record). A pretty and respectable example of this stamp. 2024 Scott US$400.00 = $540.00 $13.00
74 Canada #46,47. VF used examples of both the 1893-1897 issued 20c and 50c Queen Victoria Widow Weeds issue, both with exceptional dated cancels (Toronto ONT / Cranbrook BC). An attractive duo with fresh colour. Unitrade for VF used is $250.00. 2024 Scott US$185.00 = $249.75 $26.00

76 Canada #50/374. Collection/accumulation on an incomplete selection of computer-generated pages. There are clear gems and more potential than most similar collections we see. Filled with "hidden value" since the stamps are in mounts, with the collector often sliding in more than one stamp. The mint Jubilees (1/2c, 5c, 8c, 50c are generally heavily hinged or no gum) and the used, such as the 6c have light cancels. There is a complete mint (and most of a used) set of the QV "Leaf" issue. The "Numeral" set has most values mint (faulty) with extra used copies tucked in. The Map, EdwardVII and Quebec sets are all there (again, mixed condition). There is value in the scattered "Admiral" offering and the GeoV definitive sets have some nice lower values and a mix of completeness and condition amongst the higher values. Throughout we noted stamps with perfins, coil pairs and used blocks. Some good "dollar values" including the 1935 issued $1.00 Champlain dollar spot holds which holds three mint copies, the $1.00 Chateau Ramsey (bit of album offset) and the War Issue $1.00 Destroyer Never Hinged (as is a block of the 50c munitions, hinge in the selvage only.

83 Canada #61,62. Duo of used high-value 1897 QV Jubilee issues, including a Fine+ example of the $1.00 and a Fine+ (although slightly faded) example of the $2.00 value. A more affordable duo to fill a couple holes in your album. 2024 Scott US$1300.00 = $1,755.00 $55.00
84 Canada #62. Fine/Very Fine used example of the $2.00 dark purple QV 1897 Jubilee high-value. Tidy Brantford ONT #1 roller cancel, a very respectable example of this issue. 2024 Scott US$550.00 = $742.50 $50.00

Almost all are Never Hinged, with the exception of the two earlier airmail blocks (C1 and C4) which are Hinged on top, Never Hinged on the bottom. Several better items throughout including plate blocks (all the plate blocks here are different, either by position or plate number), special delivery, airmails, coils, QEII Centennial coil "start strips" and an "oddball" duo of pairs (#257 / #268) which give the appearance of imperforate in-between but are actually "blind perf" all the way across. The previous owner's Unitrade is listed at over $850.00 which looks to be accurate. Estimate = $160.00 $32.00
126 Canada #168 Plate Block. Very Fine mint Never Hinged lower right position plate #2 plate block of the 1930 issue 4c yellow bistre GeoV "Arch/Leaf". This is the key plate number and position. 2024 Unitrade = $400.00 $80.00

Tidy circular "R" registration postmarks on both. One stamp in each block has a fault, but otherwise very clean considering the large registered parcels these must have been removed from.

130 Canada #177. Generally sound and Fine+ selection of 31 used examples of the $1.00 dark olive green "Mount Edith Cavell" high value from the 1930-1931 issue GeoV "Arch" set.

Some excellent examples of regular issues, blocks, inscription blocks, coils and even the odd precancel / perfin / postage due.

143 Canada #236 Full Sheet. Very Fine mint Never Hinged full sheet of 100 of the 1937 issue 8c orange GeoVI definitive, with plate #1 inscription in the lower right corner. A surprisingly difficult sheet to find. 2024 Unitrade = $621.00 $26.00
144 Canada #242. Eye-catching assembly of 48 used examples of the 1938 issued 13c Halifax Harbour from the George V Pictorial series. A collector assembled group of premium "socked on the nose" postmark stamps from BC and Alberta Post Offices. Representing the "cream of the crop" from what the collector found, postmarks of this quality and clarity are surely "1 in 100" or better! Some of the towns smaller towns noted are (Alberta) Fort Vermilion, St Paul, Canyon Creek, Westlock and Berryvale and (British Columbia) Port Alberni, Duncan, Port Renfrew and Royal Oak. Throw away the catalogue value on this lot, near impossible to recreate. Estimate = $120.00 $11.00
145 Canada #243. VF mint Never Hinged matched set of "Canadian Bank Note Co. Ottawa No.2" plate blocks of the 1938 Pictorial issue 20c Fort Garry stamp. A very clean / fresh group of plate blocks. 2024 Unitrade = $945.00 $85.00
146 Canada #244 Plate Block. VF mint Never Hinged Plate #1, lower-right corner plate block of the 1938 "Vancouver Harbour" issue from the 1938 Pictorial series. This is the "key corner" for this stamp, having it's own listing in Unitrade. A very attractive plate block to get in choice condition (as this one is). 2024 Unitrade = $562.50 $100.00
147 Canada #245, 245i. Stunning premium used offering of 61 examples of the 1938 issued $1.00 Chateau Ramezay, George V Pictorial high-value in singles, pairs and strips. All neatly laid out on a single Hagner stockpage, giving a stunning 1-page stock of these stamps. We noted that both the "regular" and "aniline ink" seem to be split about evenly throughout the lot. Almost all have CDS postmarks, primarily from Vancouver BC or Whitehorse YT, with the centering also being VF on most. No faults noticed at all, showing this must have been the "cream of the crop" from what the collector assembled. Unitrade is $10.00 per stamp as VF, $5.00 per stamp as fine. 2024 Scott US$7.00 per stamp. These examples are well-above average for used examples of this issue. Estimate = $200.00 $32.00
148 Canada #245i. All Very Fine centered, vibrantly fresh and CDS used large miultiples of the scarce Unitrade listed aniline violet printing of the 1938 GeoVI issue $1.00 Chateau Ramezay high value. All with Nanaimo BC February 14th 1942 "in period" postmarks (the $1.00 Destroyer was only issued in July 1942). The two large blocks were originally the same multiple but separated at some point. A rejoined block ($29.00 face!) of the aniline printing will certainly make a spectacular exhibit page. 2024 Unitrade = $290.00 $22.00
149 Canada #249, 251, 252, 253. Very Fine mint Never Hinged quartet of 1942-1943 "War Issues" in full sheets of 100.

Almost all VF, but with the 50c Munitions and George VI "portraits" low values valued as fine. An attractive group, including airmail, special delivery and airmail special delivery. Collecting the plate blocks of the War Issue is a challenging task, being one of Canada's longest sets (in terms of number of stamps), plus multiple plates used. 2024 Unitrade = $581.15 $55.00
151 Canada #251/1205, B2, B8, B12. Sporadic Mint Never Hinged Plate Block Stock. A small half-size dealer's "red box" filled with "107" cards featuring mint plate blocks from the George VI era to 1980's, with the vast majority of being GeoVI to QEII Centennials. A duplicated selection, but with a good variety of both plate positions and plate numbers in the earlier material. Includes the consignor's hand-written inventory list, which does not include premiums for VF or Never Hinged (so plenty of upside once sorted again). Owner's 2022 Unitrade = $1,462.30 $130.00
152 Canada #256 Full Sheet of 100. Archival quality Very Fine mint Never Hinged full sheet of 100 of the 1942 "War Issue" 8c red brown "Farm Scene" with plate #1 plate block of six in the lower left corner.

156 Canada #263/266 Start, End and Repair Coil Lot. All mint Never Hinged and almost all Very Fine (#266 end strip is Fine only) selection of 1942-1943 "War Issue} coils, all Unitrade listed start strips, end strips or repair paste-up pairs.

157 Canada #270 Full Sheet. Very Fine mint Never Hinged plate #2 (lower right position) full sheet of 50 of the 1946 "Peace" issue 14c black brown "Hydroelectric Station, Quebec".

160 Canada #273, 302, 321, 411. Very Fine Hinged and (mostly) Never Hinged selection of five different 1946 to 1963 "dollar" high-values. A great lot for the dealer needing to replenish their stock of top values. 2024 Scott US$481.25 = $649.70 $10.00
161 Canada #297. Complete roll (500 stamps) of the 1950 George VI "Postes-Postage" 1c green coil stamp. Still sealed in the original Post Office outer wrapper "starter" blank perforated paper. These complete rolls are getting tougher to find, now creeping up on 75 years after issue. Conservatively valued as 500 singles, but there is potential for "jump" or "repair" strips within this sealed roll. 2024 Scott US$200.00 = $270.00 $48.00
162 Canada #298. Complete roll (500 stamps) of the 1950 George VI "Postes-Postage" 2c sepia coil stamp. Includes partial perforated "starter strip" and sealed shut since purchased from the Post Office at the time (we decided not to open this up, so some potential for "jumps" etc). The 2024 Unitrade for VF is $5.00 and Fine is $2.50 ($2500 or $1500 for a roll of 500). 2024 Scott US$1750.00 = $2,362.00 $65.00
163 Canada #299. Complete roll (500 stamps) of the 1950 George VI "Postes-Postage" 3c rose violet coil stamp. Includes a partial perforated "starter strip", about as close to "as new" from the Post Office as you will find (now almost 75 years after issue). 2024 Scott US$1050.00 = $417.50 $48.00
164 Canada #299/888. Tremendous used stock of 1950's to 1980 used Canada, sorted into envelopes within 4 small boxes (plus loose envelopes) contained within one U-Haul box. Many thousands of stamps here, seemingly unchecked for postmarks (and possibly varieties). Of interest, two of the boxes have postmarks on the top from "Post Office, Toronto " 1937 likely being stock-boxes from the Post Office. Perfect lot for sorting out. Estimate = $180.00 $10.00
165 Canada #302. Post Office fresh mint Never Hinged lower left plate #1 plate block of four of the 1951 issue $1.00 "Fisheries". This is the last GeoVI high value issued and the first GeoVI $1.00 value that most collectors acquire. 2024 Unitrade = $250.00 $36.00
166 Canada #302. The 1951 issue $1.00 "Fisheries" in a Post Office fresh and perfectly centered VF mint NH upper right "Plate #1" plate block of four. 2024 Unitrade = $250.00 $42.00
167 Canada #318/855, B1-B12. Comprehensive collection of mint Never Hinged plate blocks from 1952-1980, all arranged by Scott / Unitrade catalogue number in glassines, tightly packed within a small box. While there does not seem to be any of the high-values or much of the definitives for the period, the rest of commemorative / semi-postal issues are well covered with many matched sets (and duplication). Comes with a 12-page accurate consignor inventory list. The total face value alone is $496.40, with the stamps being catalogued as regular issues, unchecked for paper varieties. 2024 Unitrade = $3,482.35 $90.00
168 Canada #400/979. Wholesale used and mint dealer’s stock in #5 glassines - sorted by Scott number, including issues separated by Scott number, with Unitrade sub-listings for paper, perforation, etc. Up to about 50 in an envelope. More used than mint, readable cancels seen throughout. Strong sections of Cameo, Centennials, Caricatures, as well as the various printing differences from the late 1960’s-early 1970’s. There is mint scattered throughout, which probably has a face value of $150.00 - but will take some work to pull it all out. The six homemade boxes that hold this material are falling apart, but this is not your usual first half QEII wholesale lot. Because of health issues, the person who built this stock was never able to get this material to collectors, so it is offered as assembled, completely unpicked. Thousands upon thousands of stamps. Estimate = $180.00 $0.00
169 Canada #519-523, 524-528, 522i, 525i. Complete se-tenant "field stock" sheets (no philatelic inscription) of 100 of the 1970 issue 5c and 6c Christmas stamps featuring the much sought after identical centre blocks of four and all sorts of Darnell listed and Unitrade noted identical pairs (not counted here). Each sheet is valued by Unitrade as one centre block, four plate blocks of ten, eight strips of five and sixteen singles. The 6c in the centre block has the "scratch through window" (scarcer and thus worth a 50% premium) and the 5c in the centre block has the "dot between M and A". Each VF MNH sheet is brilliantly pristine and lightly folded once (mentioned for the record). 2024 Unitrade = $564.00 $30.00
170 Canada #1443-1445/BK148. Investment holding of 50 complete booklets of the 1992 National Hockey League (NHL) "Lightning on Ice" issue marking the 75th anniversary of the NHL. This "prestige" booklet featured 3 oversize panes, one for each of the 3 different designs of this issue. Face value of the mint postage alone is $525.00. 2024 Unitrade = $1,400.00 $200.00
171 Canada #1535ii. The rare and unissued 90c value 1994 Xmas proposed and rejected rate change, Very Fine mint Never Hinged. Fewer than 1,000 examples of the 90c stamp exist. The Post Office intended to increase the postal rates from 88c but changed their minds at the last minute. Somehow a few of these stamps made it onto the market. Oops! A famous modern "administrative" error. 2024 Unitrade = $600.00 $130.00
172 Canada #1688-1689, 1691-1692, 1689b, 1692b. Mint Never Hinged assembly of the 2005 issued "White-tailed Deer / Atlantic Walrus" and "Peregrine Falcon / Sable Island Horse" high-value definitive issues. This lot contains the two Post Office sealed packed of inscription blocks, two complete full panes and the two miniature panes of 4. A tough to assemble group, nearing 20 years after issue. Face value alone is $108.00. 2024 Unitrade = $270.00 $95.00
173 Canada #2045i-2048i. Complete set of 2004 "Write Me, Ring Me" issues consisting of four different special cards, each containing a souvenir sheet of 2 stamps and a phone card good for 15 minutes. There were only slightly more than 10,000 complete sets of these folders issued in total. Many of the "butterfly" (impossible to find) and "dog" (almost as hard to find) thematics have since been gobbled up by the topical market. These sets have and will increase greatly in price in the next few years. All still sealed in the original Canada Post packaging. 2024 Unitrade = $200.00 $55.00
174 Canada #2234/2708. Hoard of the low value / make-up-rate "Beneficial Insects" complete mint Never Hinged sheets of 50 stamps (x 69 sheets), with values from 1c to 25c. A very interesting "modern" Canadian issue, which spanned the 2007-2014 period and includes differences in printings, paper / gum varieties and shade differences. A nice chance to acquire a "hoard" of these at once to use as the basis for a "fly-specking" study (pun intended). Considering Canada Post no longer issues these make up stamps, these are likely the last of their kind. Only counted for the total usable postage value, so plenty of upside to this grouping. Total face value = $213.00 $180.00
175 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 $55.00
176 Canada #BK3c, BK3e. Pair of 1c green Admiral booklets, one with the regular cover, the other with the rubber stamped cover announcing rate changes. The example of BK3c has a minor corner bend on the front cover, mentioned "for the record" otherwise these booklets are complete with crisp corners and have none of the usual pencil notations that bedevil these issues. 2024 Unitrade = $500.00 $55.00
177 Canada #BK11 English. Complete near pristine example of the 1928 issued George V Scroll issue booklet (English), with 4 panes of the 1c orange booklet pane (149a). Minor rust around the staple, mentioned for the record as this is far above average for this 96 year old booklet! Panes inside are VF centered. 2024 Unitrade = $300.00 $95.00
178 Canada #BK17a English. Complete George V 1931 issued "Arch/Leaf" issue booklet (English), with 2 panes of the 2c dark brown booklet pane (166c). Stunningly fresh for this issue, with near pristine booklet covers and tight "staple". Panes inside are VF centered. 2024 Unitrade = $450.00 $150.00
179 Canada #BK21b English. Choice example of the 1933 issued George V Medallion complete booklet (English) Type II, featuring 2 panes of #196b (2c black brown GeoV Medallion issue). The panes themselves are in VF (Never Hinged) condition, with only slight wear to the outer booklet cover (as to be expected). 2024 Unitrade = $900.00 $190.00
180 Canada #BK24 English. Choice example of the George V 1935 "Pictorial" issue booklet (English), with 4 panes of the 1c green booklet pane (217b). A very fresh example of this GeoV era booklet, with crisp outer booklet cover. Panes inside are Fine centered. 2024 Unitrade = $175.00 $50.00
181 Canada #BK25 English. Complete example of the 1935 issued George V Pictorial series booklet (English), featuring 2 panes of #218b (2c brown George V). Crisp booklet covers, VF panes inside with only a very small "rust" spot from the staple (mentioned more "for the record" than anything else). A choice example of this complete booklet. 2024 Unitrade = $262.50 $55.00
182 Canada #BK27 English. Complete George V 1935 issued "Pictorial" issue booklet (English), with panes of the 1c green, 2c brown and 3c dark carmine stamps. A nice early "multiple value" complete booklet. Minor rust around the staple (on the back), but far above average for this booklet with near pristine booklet covers. Panes inside are VF centered. 2024 Unitrade = $450.00 $120.00
183 Canada #BK33a English. Wholesale offering of 20 examples of the 1942 War Issue booklet with 2 panes of the 2c brown (6 stamps per pane), Type 1, 6c Rate Page. Unitrade values VF booklets with a 50% premium, while there are many throughout, we have catalogued these with no premiums added. Plenty of upside for the internet or show dealer once sorted into Fine / VF booklets. 2024 Unitrade = $900.00 $10.00
184 Canada #BK34a English. Wholesale group of 41 examples of the 1942 War Issue booklet with 2 panes of 3c carmine stamps (4 stamps per pane) with rate page. Very clean overall, being safely stowed away for decades. Expect the odd mark, or staple discoloration (mentioned for the record more than anything, as these are well above average for this period). No premium has been added for VF panes, but plenty exist within. Perfect for the internet / show dealer. 2024 Unitrade = $574.00 $10.00
185 Canada #BK34c English. Wholesale offering of 20 examples of the 1942 War Issue booklet with 2 panes of the 3c carmine (4 stamps per pane), with NO RATE PAGE.

190 Canada #CE1. VF mint Never Hinged complete (right upper pane) sheet of 50 stamps, including the upper right / lower right Plate No.1 inscriptions of the 1942 issued 16c "Trans Canada airplane" airmail special delivery issue. A "crimp" line across the upper selvedge, which might be a natural paper flaw mentioned for the record (not affecting the stamps). A wonderfully fresh WWII complete sheet. 2024 Unitrade = $275.00 $55.00
191 Canada #CL13c, CL13d. Stunning example of the 1926 Patricia Airways "Pine Ridge and Red Lake" route inscription in blue-black, semi-official airmail stamps, with both the regular issue and "small t in TO" Unitrade listed variety in a lower sheet margin pair, tied on flight cover from Red Lake to Sioux Lookout. The stamps alone have a Unitrade catalogue value of $750.00, a cover such as this would certainly demand a premium. Estimate = $400.00 $42.00
192 Canada #E1-E11 x Three Complete Sets. Three complete sets of all eleven 1898 to 1946 Special Delivery issues. All sound and Fine/Very Fine or better, many with legible CDS postmarks. A superior quality group for both the collector or dealer. 2024 Scott US$387.75 = $523.45 $11.00
193 Canada #E5. Fine/Very Fine mint 2x Never Hinged/ 2x Hinged block of four of the 1932 issue 20c henna brown "CENTS" Special Delivery stamp. Much more bi-lingual than the "TWENTY CENTS" of the earlier #E4! 2024 Scott US$350.00 = $472.50 $10.00

195 Canada #E7-E11. Very Fine mint Never Hinged selection of the final five (1938-1946 period) Special Deliveries, all in fresh and attractive blocks of four.

The first block is an upper left corner block of four, with the broken "0" variety on the lower right stamp (trivial crayon marking on the gum side in the selvedge, not affecting the stamps mentioned for the record). The second block is a lower left corner block of six, with cutting guideline at left. An attractive duo of Special Delivery multiples.

203 Canada #O8-112, O8-159, O8-165. Stunning "O.H.M.S." usage on registered parcel tag piece, sent from Victoria BC on February 6th 1932 to West Summerland BC (via Calgary & Vancouver RPO / Okanagan Landing and Sicamous RPO). Franked with 5-hole OHMS perfin 5c GeoV Admiral, 2c GeoV Leaf and $1.00 "Scroll" Parliament, making for one of the most spectacular parcel tags we have seen (certainly the best use of OHMS perfins we have seen). Valued only for the catalogue value of the used stamps, but this item certainly demands a premium! 2024 Scott US$675.00 = $911.25 $160.00
204 Canada #O8-190 Rare Three Position Trio. A "New to the Market" group of three 1931 issue 10c "Cartier" stamps, all with 5-Hole OHMS Official perfins. The perfins are in three different Unitrade listed positions, consisting of position 1 (Fine/Very Fine, missing pin in "S"), position 5 (Very Fine, RF1.5, missing pin in "S") and position 7 (Very Fine, RF2). Premiums have been added as per Unitrade for positions and condition but no additional premium for missing pin in "S", as the editors have forgotten to note this formerly listed detail in the latest Unitrade. 2024 Unitrade = $320.00 $46.00
205 Canada #O9-226/O10-CE2. An "original find" hoard of several hundred mostly 4-hole OHMS perfin in a small box. This totally unchecked group has not seen the light-of-day since the original collector stopped in the 1950's, with the stamps being held by the family in storage since then. Many higher values including 6 examples of O9-262, ($1.00 War Issue "Destroyer") and 5 examples of O10-CE2 (17c War Issue Special Delivery Airmail), among others. These are largely select examples with many dated postmarks, collected as incoming mail at the time from one of the largest Drug Stores / Pharmacies in Victoria BC (of which the collector was the owner / namesake). We did note that the odd "5-Hole" OHMS or private perfin, but expect these to be 99% 4-Hole examples. Unpicked for any varieties, so a wonderful opportunity to acquire an original find group that will take many happy hours to sort out. Estimate = $300.00 $65.00
206 Canada #O10-CE3. Very Fine mint Never Hinged Post Office Fresh upper right position plate #1 plate block of the 1946 issue 17c "incorrect accent" Special Delivery Airmail stamp with 4-Hole OHMS Official perfins. A scarce block in choice mint condition. 2024 Unitrade = $600.00 $75.00
207 Canada - Small Queen Study / Accumulation. Semi-organized selection of well over 1,000 Small Queen issues, 1/2c to 10c value, mint (some), used (mostly) and covers (a few). The bulk of the group consists of the 1c values. The lot is particularly interesing for the wide range of postmarks, including Fancy Corks, Railway Post Offices, Circular Date Stamps (CDS), Squared Circles, Rollers and more. Take a good look at the scans to see if there are any "treasures hiding in plain site". Estimate = $325.00 $110.00
208 Canada - A massive used wholesale stock filling not one, but two U-Haul boxes. Mostly QEII up to about 1985 and usually sorted into glassines and identified by Scott / Unitrade numbers. Most are sorted into fragile stock-boxes, but there are a few handfuls of "free range" glassines. Appears to originate from three sources. Typically, each glassine has 5-100 stamps each and there are thousands of glassines. A quick check of the 1950’s era material indicated that there are cancels to be explored. About one half of one U-Haul box is slogan cancels, mostly on cut squares and organized by Coutts numbers. Estimate = $160.00 $0.00
209 Canada - Annual Collections for 1975-1982, 1984, 1986, 1986, 2001, 2003-2005. Selection of fourteen different Canada Post yearbooks, including scarce early (1975 & 1976) volumes, all in Very Fine condition with their original dust covers or slipcovers and containing the mint Never Hinged stamps, souvenir sheets and booklet panes from these 14 years. A mix of soft and hardcover large format volumes. These books are an excellent alternative to purchasing annual album supplements (which often cost more without the stamps included! Total face value of the mint stamps in all the annual collections is $256.44. 2024 Unitrade = $870.00 $60.00
210 Canada - Annual Collections for 1978-1987. Intact run of ten Canada Post yearbooks, all in VF condition with their original dust covers or slipcovers and containing the mint Never Hinged stamps, souvenir sheets and booklet panes from these 10 years. Total face value is $144.21. 2024 Unitrade = $395.00 $10.00
211 Canada - Annual Collections for 1989-2004. Intact run of sixteen Canada Post yearbooks, all in VF condition with their original dust covers or slipcovers and containing the mint Never Hinged stamps, souvenir sheets and booklet panes from these 16 years. Very lavishly illustrated and very informative large format volumes. These books are a excellent alternative to purchasing annual album supplements (which often cost more, even without the stamps included!). Total face value of the mint stamps in all these annual collections is $522.34. 2024 Unitrade = $1,310.00 $55.00
212 Canada - Annual Collections for 1996-2000. Five hardcover Annual Collections (with slipcases) as issued by Canada Post, a complete 1996 to 2000 (inclusive) run of these informative annual albums. Many collectors prefer these books to album supplements. The total face value of the mint stamps, souvenir sheets and booklet panes in the five albums is $165.66. 2024 Unitrade = $435.00 $10.00
213 Canada - Annual Collections: Hardcover 1987 & 1988. Pristine mint (still in original shrink wrap!) examples of the premium and very scarce HARDCOVER annual collections for 1987 and 1988 (Unitrade #30a & 31a). These two volumes, which Canada Post originally sold for a higher issue price, now often sell for full catalogue (and more). 2024 Unitrade = $135.00 $22.00
214 Canada - Better than usual box of leftover collections, accumulations and other. Includes older Scott, Jarrett, Minkus and even a "Stokes" album with a mix of various coverage from Small Queens to about 1990. Noted Jubilees to 15c, other QV to 10c, King Edward VII to 50c, with some mint KGVI mint dollars and a never hinged Fish dollar. Between the various collections, a very decent collection or dealer’s stock could be amassed. There is some cancel potential, and the face value of the modern material will add up quickly (noting denominations up to $5.00). We noted a binder of 1960’s new issue announcement folders, a few small folders, ledger or stock books with a large assortment of mostly used material, including some multiples and booklet panes. There is the occasional quirky item like a CAPEX ’87 passport. Value here at every turn but expect a wide range of condition. Estimate = $200.00 $10.00
215 Canada - Bundles / "Bundleware" within boxes, within an apple box, and enough stamps for every imaginable need. Although this group appears to run from the Victorian era up to about 1990, the strength is in the 17c era of the early 1980’s. We did note bundles of 5c QV numerals, 7c ochre Admiral, 4c and 8c Mufti’s, and some other King George VI issues with cancel potential. The next 30 years are a bit sparse, as is material from 1985 onwards. There are 13 small boxes, most tightly packed with paper-tied bundles of 100, with more commemoratives than definitives. Each box appears to have 12,000-15,000 stamps each, so we are conservatively guessing that there are 140,000 stamps here. Offered as received. Estimate = $200.00 $0.00
216 Canada - Compilation in Two Cartons.Two cartons containing a basic used collection, First Day Covers and duplicated used stock. The used collection consists of hundreds of different clean Very Fine used stamps and souvenir sheets in a two volume set of Minkus Canada albums with pages up to 2002 (strength in 20th century material). There are over 500 mostly different First Day Covers, ranging from the 1960s up to the 1990s, with mixed private and Canada Post cachets, all housed in eight special FDC albums (these albums retail for $20.00 to $30.00 each). The clean and sound duplicated used stock of thousands is very neatly organized in four stock books (mostly 1970s to 2000s period material). Great range and quality here! Estimate = $500.00 $10.00
217 Canada - Complete Mint Booklet Bonanza Part A. Pristine offering 77 booklets from the 1980's to 2000's including "greetings", peel n'stick, commemoratives and USA / International rates. A great way to fill in a few spots in your booklet and sell / use / trade the rest! Conservatively valued for the total face value only. Total face value = $308.50 $44.00
218 Canada - Complete Mint Booklet Bonanza Part B. Another helping of modern intact Canadian booklets, totalling 89 seemingly all different from the 1990's to about 2010 including lots of self-adhesive issues. A great chance to fill in some spots in your booklet collection (likely) at a price less than you would have had to pay when these were issued! Conservatively value for the total usable postage value only. Total face value = $458.31 $210.00
219 Canada - Early Souvenir Card, Thematic Collection, Annual Collection and First Day Cover Hoard. Large moving box packed with all kind of Canada Post produced collectibles, including the early souvenir cards (Unitrade #1/14), annual collections (Unitrade #15-16), a shoebox packed with all kinds of thematic collections (too many to list) and several hundred First Day Covers. The FDCs, housed in five FDC albums run from 1938 up through the 1970s and include both Canada Post and private cachet makers. The private cachet makers include Cominco, Capital, Rosecraft, H & E, JCR and more. This is a great lot for the Canadian collector looking for the earlier Canada Post products. Estimate = $250.00 $13.00
220 Canada - Elizabethan wholesale stock on 140 manila stockpages in 4 binders covering 1952-2004. Thousands of stamps, with up to about 15 of a type, well identified, laid out and in clean condition. There could be some finds for the specialist or the cancel hunter, but we will let you figure that out. Most of the pages themselves are fresh, appear to be brand new, and have an outrageous retail value to replace them. A very clean offering. Estimated = $140.00 $10.00
221 Canada #1250ii. Lower left position Very Fine mint Never Hinged inscription block of four of the 1989 issue 38c Regiments commemorative. Most inscription blocks were withdrawn due to problematic and incredibly poor printing quality. Only one inscription block was allowed per customer and only through mail order from the National Philatelic Centre. 2024 Unitrade = $250.00 $40.00
222 Canada - Mint and Used 1976-2009 Collection in Four Lighthouse Albums. Mixed mint and used collection of many hundred 1976-2009 issue stamps, souvenir sheets and booklet panes (Unitrade #700/2344), all housed in four top-of-the-line Lighthouse SF (Hingeless) turn-post albums with matching slipcases (retail value "as new" over $1,000.00). The face value of the mint Never Hinged stamps in the four volumes is well over $250.00 and the total catalogue value is in the thousands. This lot offers a great basis for expansion. Estimate = $600.00 $290.00
223 Canada - Mint Block / Plate Block Accumulation Part 1. A 3-ring "Block Stamp Album" binder containing a few hundred blocks or (primarily) plate blocks from the GeoVI to early QEII period (with a few earlier). A good run of both material, including large runs of the GeoV "Postes-Postage", Wilding and Karsh issues with numerous numbered plate blocks. We also noted a some "back of the book", named semi-postal issues and "red" postage dues. Expect a few of the earlier blocks to be Hinged, but largely a Never Hinged offering. A great larger lot to work though, with better variety than often seen. Estimate = $200.00 $44.00
224 Canada - Mint Block / Plate Block Accumulation Part 2. A Minkus brand 3-ring "Block Album" containing a few hundred blocks or plate blocks 1969-1974, many in matched sets ranging from catalogue numbers #490/644. Unchecked for any paper varieties, of which there are many for this period. Seeming all Never Hinged material. A great lot for sorting out, in search of varieties. Estimate = $150.00 $42.00
225 Canada - Mint Melody of (primarily) Plate Blocks / Inscription blocks from the 1950's to 1970's within two 32-page stockbooks. A well-organized group of material, all appearing to be Never Hinged. Unchecked for any paper types, as much of this period saw variety in paper florescence. Conservatively valued for the total usable postage value. Total face value = $348.49 $10.00
226 Canada - Mint Never Hinged / Hinged Plate Blocks. A selection of primarily QEII to 1980 issue plate blocks (with some earlier) arranged within two Lighthouse brand plate block 32-page stockbooks. An interesting, yet inconsistent run of material, which includes many matched sets and a smattering of earlier GeoVI / QEII with variety in plate numbers. Expect much of the earlier material to be Hinged, with the modern modern being Never Hinged. Includes a selection of "Red Postage Dues" not counted in the total. Conservatively valued for the total usable postage value, so some obvious upside in the earlier material / dues. Total face value = $133.33 $10.00
227 Canada - Mint Sheet Compilation. A premium offering of 10 mint Never Hinged sheets, all selected for being "better" than the standard offering. Includes 1963 Canada Geese (two different inscription panes), EXPO 1970 (two sheets, one with inscription blocks and one "field stock"), 1969 Hermit Thrush (#498 Field Stock), 1971 Radio Canada (#541 Field Stock), 1970 United Nations (#513,514 with 2 sheets of each, "field stock" and inscription "philatelic stock"). The catalogue value adds up quickly on these sheets, which are getting harder to find intact. 2024 Unitrade = $985.00 $10.00
228 Canada - Old-time collector's duplicate stock QV to 1952 in a "period" small blue spring-back style stockbook with "G.P. Bainbridge 817 Granville St" handstamp in the back (one of the prominent Vancouver dealers of many decades ago). Several hundred stamps here, left untouched, as received from the family which has been storing it since the 1950's. Loads of potential throughout, including betters stamps such as QV, Admirals, coils, War Issue $1.00 Destroyers, George V commemoratives, "back of the book" and Revenue stamps. Totally unchecked for varieties or postmarks (of which we note premium postmarks throughout). A wonderful opportunity for the Canadian collector, a time-capsule of Canadian stamps. Estimate = $250.00 $32.00
229 Canada - One of the largest wholesale lots of used Canada that we have ever offered, pushing a 68 litre Rubbermaid tub to its physical capacity. Assembled in the mid-1990’s, each stamp is in its own #8 sized envelope (including sub numbers by Unitrade - tagging, papers), and clearly marked with Scott number, denomination, and description of the stamp. There are a few thousand envelopes here, with anywhere from 1 to about 50 stamps each. Although technically going back to Edward VII, the concentration is 1965-1995. On a cursory look, we noticed that some of the 1980’s issues include cut up first day covers, with a number of plate blocks with first day cancels, but otherwise everything seems to be off paper. The mass of this lot is significant, and value lurks for the intrepid sorter. A conservative estimate is 50,000 stamps. Estimate = $200.00 $0.00
230 Canada - Over a century of used wholesale stock in glassines and #8 envelopes filling a U-Haul box. Nicely separated going back to the 3c Small Queen, up to 1990’s, and not your usual offering. Lots of Victorian issues, including 2c revalues, noted an envelope of 2c Quebecs, lots of Admirals, Chateau, Destroyer and Ferry dollars, plus coils, etc. A quick glance indicates some potential for cancels. Thousands and thousands of stamps here. Estimate = $200.00 $16.00
231 Canada - Post Office SEALED 1970's complete sheets. A comprehensive showing of 36 mostly different (a few duplicates notes) complete sheets from mid/late-1970's, all still sealed within the original Canada Post packaging. Includes better such as the 1976 Olympic Stadium $1.00 / $2.00 panes and the 1977 QEII Silver Jubilee. All sheets complete with inscription corner blocks and in pristine condition. After many years of being "neglected" these original Canada Post offerings are now finding their place in collections, with collectors finding a challenge in obtaining these sheets "as received" from the Post Office 50 years after issue! Conservatively valued for the total usable postage, but worth (in our opinion) more. Total face value = $219.50 $80.00
232 Canada - Uncut Press Sheets Bonanza Part 1. A group of 12 uncut press sheets 1996-2019, all still in original Post Office tube. A nice "larger" lot of these limited-edition Post-Office issues. Included are the issues for 2003 Year of the Ram (#1970ii), 2012 Year of the Dragon (#2496ii), 1996 Historic Land Vehicles (#1605z), 2009 International Year of Astronomy (#2323ci), 1998 RCMP (#1736-1737i), 2013 Superman (#2677i), 2019 Year of the Pig (3162ii), 2000 Birds "V" (#1842i) and 2002 Year of the Horse (#1934ii). A nice chance to acquire a large group of these at once. Total useable face value alone being $200.37, with the original retail price from Canada Post being $260.70. 2024 Unitrade = $630.00 $90.00
233 Canada - Uncut Press Sheets Bonanza Part 2. A group of 11 uncut press sheets 1996-2014, all still in original Post Office tube. A nice opportunity to acquire a "larger" lot of these limited-edition Post-Office issues.

A nice chance to acquire a large group of these at once. Total useable face value alone being $267.28, with an original issue price / retail of $352.81. 2024 Unitrade = $915.00 $90.00
234 Canada - Useful Starter Carton of Stamps and Supplies. Bankers box packed with some mint and (mostly) used Canada, including: clean modern used in a big fat red cover "Unisafe" black page stock book; a dealer red box packed with a decent quantity and wide range of mint and used Canada in dealer "102" style sales cards (probably a couple of hundred dollars catalogue value here); a shoebox containing mostly used Canada on and off paper (saw $8.00 Grizzlies in the mix); a kraft carton box packed with US and Canada stamps on and off paper, black stamp mount strips, a mount guillotine, a 2000 Millennium "keepsake" tin and more; and finally a small white box containing used US stamps in "102" cards. Estimate = $120.00 $10.00
235 Canada / USA - Collections/Accumulations. Mixed condition, mostly used carton-load of Canada and US stamps, all housed in albums and stock books. The Canadian material is organized in three stock books, one binder with blank pages and in a "SAFE" hingeless album with pages to 1959. The US material is housed in two Lighthouse "SF" (Hingeless) albums and one Minkus "All American" album. Both collections are worthy of expansion and there are enough duplicates to allow club "swaps" for some time. Estimate = $325.00 $10.00
236 Canada Cancels - British Columbia. Group of 54 choice BC split ring cancels, all dated 1938 on small cut square / piece, as collected as the time by a collector in Victoria, not having seen another collector's eyes since the 1950's. These were likely snipped from incoming mail to a prominent Victoria BC drug store and represent many small communities (and many closed Post Offices), with strength in Vancouver Island postmarks. Some of the better Post Office include Provincial Cannery, Hanceville, Hilliers Crossing, Heriot Bay, Refugee Cove, Marguerite, Castle Rock, Rendonda Bay, Shearer Dale, Palling, Jesmond, Grassy Plaines, Decker Lake, Tupper Creek, Hulatt, Blind Channel and Blaeberry. All neatly laid out on stockpages. An enticing lot for the postmark hound! Estimate = $150.00 $42.00
237 Canada Cancels - Post Confederation-era Newfoundland town cancel collection on stamp/piece, with significant strength in Centennial issue (didn’t see much after 1990). Mounted on ruled pages, ordered and identified by Post Office with the population of the towns listed. Lots of circular date stamps, a respectable amount of MOONs, some POCONs and machine cancels. We did note a few covers interspersed here and there amongst the 500 items, with some light duplication. Almost all these hammers are retired and many of these Post Offices have been closed. All housed in a red "Stamford" springback album. Estimate = $140.00 $38.00
238 Canada Cancels - RPO Railway Post Office Accumulation. An unchecked / unresearched FIRST TIME ON THE MARKET group of 297 RPO / TPO cancels on stamp or piece. Untouched for the past 70 years, these postmarks were put aside by a traditional stamp collector back in the 1950's in an envelope labeled "RPO" presumably as he came across them. To facilitate viewing, we have laid them out over 7 stockpages. Some of the notable items are CPR West of Winnipeg, Eastern Arctic Mail RMS Nascopie and "Vic and Van RPO" 1913 steamship oval postmarks x2. Primarily Western Canadian runs (as the collector was based in Victoria), with the quality of strikes being well above average. Great lot for the RPO hunter. Estimate = $180.00 $28.00
239 Canada Cancels - Small box of "original find" SLOGAN cancels on cut-sqaures. Seemingly all from the WWII era (with the odd USA mixed in), totally unchecked. These were collected at the time, from the mail of a major pharmacy in Victoria BC. One of the owners who was a stamp collector, had the corners trimmed (to keep the whole postmark) and saved. These have not seen the light of day since the 1940's, and while there are some "loose" in the bottom of the box, we left the majority just as packed in the original "brown paper" pharmacy bag (trimmed down to show contents). A wealth of WWII era related slogans and BLACKOUT cancels. Get your Coutt's slogan catalogue ready with this one. Easily over 2000 items (perhaps more). Estimate = $250.00 $0.00
240 Canada Covers #601/2465b. Group of 9x Uni-Safe "Dual" First Day Cover albums with a good starter collection of cachet FDCs from 1972-2011. Includes mostly Canada Post cachets, but into the early 1980’s there is a good mix of private cachets (and often both are represented). The condition is excellent, with most FDCs being unaddressed. Where there is duplication, it is because of different cachets, or singles vs plate blocks. We noted that there are a number of $1.00 & $2.00 denominated plate blocks on cover (no matched sets). By the mid-1990’s the collection starts to thin out, but there are a few covers from stamps shows mixed in. About 585 covers, not counting the covers with no cachet. Great room to expand, as each album holds over 100 covers each. The total retail value of the albums alone is $225.00. Estimate = $200.00 $10.00
241 Canada Covers - A philatelic tale of Two Kings. A collector's assembly of 39 covers and 1 piece bearing late George V / early George VI issues.

Banker's box containing 7 binders filled with pages, which feature 187 covers and 180 photographs from a wide array of both city and rural Post Offices, neatly arranged by postal code with most pages featuring one cover and one photograph to showcase the Post Office. These were all created as one-of-a-kind items, purely for the collector, who was (whether he realized it or not) preserving the history of the Post Office during that period. A painstaking amount of time and money must have been used to put these together, but as with many collections, it was surely a labour of love! Estimate = $250.00 $24.00
243 Canada Covers - Assembly of 19 covers / postcards and 2 early illustrated cheques, all sleeved and priced many years ago for auction sale. Many better items throughout including registered, foreign destinations and postage due. A cursory look through shows that the pricing is a bit liberal, which may be the reason these did not sell years ago (to you advantage now). Retail / auction estimate pricing comes out to $1110.00. Conservatively estimated at less than 15% of the original pricing. Estimate = $150.00 $55.00
244 Canada Covers - BC British Columbia Postal History. Waconda BC 1913 split ring postmark on 1c green Admiral stamp dated March 29th 1913. A "new find", which represents 1 of 3 known examples from this short-lived Post Office.

246 Canada Covers - British Columbia Postal History. A collector's accumulation of 58 covers and postcards QV to QEII, many mounted on pages within an album.

A small show "dealer stock" that has not seen the light of day in 20 years consisting of roughly 700-800 postcards all individually sleeved filling 3/4 of a bankers box. Most of the postcards are Toronto / Montreal scenes being two of the largest "hubs" of Eastern Canada, but there are scattered bits of all sort as well (noted a few "Halifax Explosion" postcards). At least half of the cards are chrome, but includes good runs of earlier material as well. Likely a few hidden gems lurking for the intrepid postcard collector / dealer. Estimate = $200.00 $55.00
256 Canada Covers - FFC First Flight / E3 Special Delivery Franking Group. An astounding group of 26x 1930's First Flight Covers, each franking with the iconic E3 Special Delivery stamp. These seem to all early 1930's "Prairie Airmails" carried on many legs of the flights in Western Canada's "Prairies". The E3 Special Delivery stamp is considered by many to be one of Canada's most attractive issues (especially when looking at the intricate detail in the design).

Expect duplication, but also expect an enormous amount of covers to sort out! A total of 1039, with a face value of $819.43 (which puts the original cost from Canada Post at well over $1000.00!).

349 France #C5/C32, CB1-CB3. A group of 35 mint airmail and semi-postal airmails and a few air themed commemoratives issued 1930-1954, a near-compete run, missing only the top values. Nicely centered, all are Hinged, with some minor faults to be expected. Fresh appearance. Total 2023 Scott US$926.40 = $1,250.64 $42.00
350 France - Collection of mint / used 1876-1958 in a Davo brand hingeless album. Mostly used in the earlier material, before transitioning to a higher percentage of mint in the later issues. An expansive study, with many of the spots compounded with 2 or 3 examples of the stamp. Includes a decent showing of earlier definitive issues, plus notable items such as #127/128 mint (CV $70.00), 414 VF Mint NH (CV $70.00), B147a ($22.50) etc. A spot check shows the mint is mostly Hinged / Hinge remnant to 1955, then Never Hinged going forward. Approximately 1280 stamps, with a catalogue value that would exceed US$2000.00. The album itself has seen better days, but could be fixed up with a bit of TLC. Estimate = $250.00 $20.00
351 France - Collection on Yvert & Tellier album with pages to 1967. Over 1400 different stamps including "back of the book". A mix of both mint and used (the earlier tend to be used, then progressing to more mint material). The album has been well loved, but it has lovingly protected the stamps, which are generally in excellent condition, fresh and well centered. The owner’s catalogue value by 2018 Scott was $5832.00, a spot check against the 2023 Scott indicates that prices are down 10%, and we are rounding it down a little bit more "just in case". Total estimated 2023 Scott US$5,000.00 = $6,750.00 $22.00
352 France - First Day Cover accumulation, with about 650 "silk" cacheted, unaddressed First Day Covers issued between 1966-1986, with a few duplicates and a couple are maxi-cards. While not complete for the period, this group represents a very good run. Overall, the condition is excellent. Owner’s 2021 Y&T catalogues is euro 1,628.00 ($2408.00 CDN). Estimate = $160.00 $24.00
353 France - Mint Dealer Stock offering. A stock of mint (about 95% Never Hinged) from primarily the 1942-1985 period including many semi-postals and other "back of the book", with duplication. Housed in a blue European stockbook, there are single values to $2-3 catalogue, with sets from $3-$5 throughout (even a couple sets in the $30 range!). A total of 2050+ stamps largely unchecked, with potential varieties to be found by the knowledgeable eye. Owner estimates that the catalogue value would exceed US$1200.00. Estimate = $220.00 $11.00
354 Gambia #41/59. All sound and Fine/Very Fine mint Hinged selection of 15 different stamps from the 1904-1909 issue Edward VII series, all watermark 3 (Multiple Crown and CA). A colourful group. 2024 Scott US$160.25 = $216.35 $36.00
355 Germany #402/529, B99/B291, C46/C60 plus other BOB, General Government & Bohemia and Moravia. Third Reich collection with several hundred mint and used stamps, plus a few souvenir sheets all in a bit battered regular Lighthouse album with (damaged) slipcover. Although some key items appear to have been removed many years ago, there is good value here, noting B67 and 2 copies of B104, airmails C55-56, plus a host of individual stamps in the $10.00-$20.00 catalogue value range. The General Government is quite complete, including back of the book issues, and there is a bit of Bohemia and Moravian material. Some black mounts have been added, and there is some duplication where the collector found a shade, se-tenant pair or nice cancel to augment the collection. Speaking of extras, there are about 20 pieces of postal history and postal stationery in the form of Feldpost, civilian and philatelic mail. Although the album would have originally had a significant original cost, because of its condition, we are not considering it in our estimated value. Estimate = $180.00 $22.00
356 Germany - A banker’s box with the balance of a consignment. Starts with a hingeless Lindner album with 1992-1999 mint Never Hinged stamps, including semi-postals (the printed pages are 1992-1994) and the balance used generic pages - about 400 stamps cataloging about US$500.00 plus an album that would set you back $200.00. There is a springback album with a clean used collection from the early issues up to 1990, including some East Germany. There is a small study of a couple hundred stamps with Berlin cancels on Vario-brand stockpages. A near-new Uni-Safe 32 page stockbook contains three pages of mint issues circa 1981 (perfect to help you with your sorting). Next are a couple of mint inflation-era panes and a big bundle of 1984-1990 new issue release "posters" (shows stamp, cancel, lengthy description - a few with press photo), a page of "potential" including some Germany states and post-WWII issues and even saw a few forgeries. Estimate = $200.00 $16.00
357 Germany - Collection in Six Volumes and One Sheet File. Mint and used collection many hundreds of Germany and German Democratic Republic issues, housed in five "SAFE" brand hingeless albums, one binder of Scott pages and one additional large format sheet file. The albums are organized for Germany as 1872-1933, 1933-1945, 1949-1969 and 1964-1986. The German Democratic Republic volumes are 1949-1978 and 1969-1974. The sheet file contains a mix of large multiples from Germany, Berlin and East Germany. While no particularly valuable individual items were seen in the collections, there are some areas (3rd Reich etc) that have enough completion to be useful to the collector wanting to begin building a German area collection, expanding upon the material already present. The pages and binders alone retail for hundreds of dollars. Estimate = $600.00 $11.00
358 Gibraltar #147/293. Pristine offering of 122 different mint Never Hinged stamps, all in complete sets from the 1960-1972 period (a near complete run for the period). All neatly displayed on 3 Hagner brand stocksheets. Wonderful topicals from the period, including the 1967-1969 QEII "ships" series. 2024 Scott US$186.20 = $251.35 $16.00
359 Great Britain #1. Attractive used example of the iconic 1840 Penny Black, used with three strong margins and then just touching on the lower right. Crisp white paper, a pleasing example of this iconic stamp. 2024 Scott US$375.00 = $506.25 $26.00
360 Great Britain #1, 2. Nice used duo of the 1840 Penny Black / Penny Blue, both being strong 3-margin examples, just touching the frameline on one side each. A very respectable pair of the worlds first adhesive postage stamps. 2024 Scott US$1325.00 = $1,788.75 $26.00
361 Great Britain #1, 2, 3, 4. Sound and Fine/Very Fine used examples of the first four 1840-1841 stamp issues of not only Great Britain but of the entire world!

362 Great Britain #70. Fine/Very fine mint no gum example of the 1877 issue 4p pale olive green, plate16, watermark 23 (Large Garter). 2024 Scott US$1,625.00 = $2,193.75 $10.00

366 Great Britain #111-122. Fresh and Fine/Very Fine mint OG Hinged/HR complete set of 12 of the 1887-1900 surface printed "Queen Victoria Jubilee" issues. The odd light bend/crease noted for the record on a couple of stamps. Attractive and colourful, these stamps represent the high point of 19th century British stamp design. 2024 Scott US$755.25 = $1,019.59 $42.00
367 Great Britain #139-141. Very Fine all CDS used high value trio consisting of the 2sh6p lilac, 5sh carmine rose and 10sh ultramarine 1902-1911 issue Edwards. 2024 Scott US$870.00 = $1,174.50 $22.00
368 Great Britain #140. Perfectly centered Very Fine mint OG, Very Lightly Hinged example of the 1902 issue 5sh carmine rose Edward VII high value. Great colour, as rich and fresh as the day it was printed! 2024 Scott US$450.00 = $607.50 $160.00

Exceptionally well centered and fresh Very Fine mint Very Lightly Hinged complete set of the last (1934) printing of the 2sh6p brown, 5sh carmine and 10sh dark blue KGV "Seahorses", printed by Waterlow and Sons. A particularly attractive trio. 2024 Scott US$605.00 = $816.75 $32.00
371 Great Britain #249-251A, 275. Very Fine mint and mostly Very Lightly Hinged (some require a magnifier to see the Hinge mark!) complete run of all the 1939-1948 GeoVI large format high value "Arms" issues, including both 2sh6p values, the 5sh, both 10sh values and the later £1 value. 2024 Scott US$237.50 = $320.65 $13.00

All clean Fine/Very Fine mint (and almost all Never Hinged) 1952 to 2004 period collection of 624 stamps and souvenir sheets in three Very Fine condition high end Schaubek albums (on Hingeless pages with deluxe padded spring back binders) with pages to 2004. These three popular albums retail for around $350.00 as new. Most of the stamps and catalogue value are in the first two volumes. Valued for the stamps only. An exceptional start to a QEII period collection. 2024 Scott US$769.55 = $1,038.90 $16.00
373 Great Britain - Collection of 215 special illustrated postmark covers 1966-1969. An enticing large offering (rather than a few here and there) of the often very interesting, illustrated postmarks used in the late 1960's to mark events. Some of the topics represented are Lincoln Castle, Philatelic Congress, Stamp Societies, Stamp Shows, Flower Festival, Air Rally and Fishing Competition (among MANY others). Estimate = $120.00 $10.00
374 Great Britain - First Day Cover Collection 1965-2015. Bankers box holding over 400 covers from the mid-1960's up to 2015. A very comprehensive and seemingly all-different group, almost all addressed to a collector in Hertfordshire UK. Strength in the post-2000 issues which is likely an almost complete run as ordered from the British Post Office, including MANY sets and souvenir sheets. Enormous original cost, especially when you start adding up the many "1st Class" or "pound-plus" values. The used stamps alone would carry a significant catalogue value and many collectors have opted to "soak" these as they are often the only way to obtain the used stamps. Estimate = $400.00 $110.00
375 Great Britain - Officials. Mixed condition used accumulation/selection of 66 Queen Victoria and King Edward VII official stamps covering IR OFFICIAL (27), GOVt. PARCELS (13) and ARMY OFFICIAL (18). Moderate duplication (up to 9 of one issue) and 2 pairs. The usual number of heavy cancels found on these issues. Owner's Scott US$2,100.00 = $2,835.00 $10.00
376 Great Britain - Royal Mail Presentation Packs 1995/2005. All different 1995 to 2002 issue selection of 60 all different Royal Mail Presentation Packs, all commemorative issues (and as such all valid for postal use). The mix includes the 1999/2000 "Millennium" issues. Al housed in a special Royal Mail album specifically designed for these popular and informative packs. Significant catalogue value total by either Scott of Stanley Gibbons concise. Total Useable Face Value £148.99 = $260.00 $10.00
377 Great Britain - Take a look at every scan in this lot before making up your mind about how much to bid, as organization comes and goes, but high cataloguing stamps are everywhere. It does start with Queen Victoria, sparse up to the Jubilee issue. Most of the Edward VII set has multiple copies, a few pages have George VI and early Elizabethan, but then reverts to George V definitives, often by the score! Then there are some 1924 British Empire Exhibition stamps and a herd of about 50 Seahorses! The lot finishes with more GeogeVI and Edward VIII (with some mint multiples). The only downside to this lot is the 32-page stockbook, which needs some TLC (tender loving care, after being shown a total lack of concern). Thousands upon thousands of dollars of catalogue value and appears unchecked for cancels or varieties. Estimate = $240.00 $55.00
378 Great Britain Covers - Postal History Potpourri in a small box. A selection of 185 covers and postcards from QV to QEII, but primarily from the early QEII era. Some of the more notable items include GeorgeVI First Day Covers, early QEII First Day Covers, a "coin cachet" cover and some Channel Islands (including several Jersey postage dues on postcards). A tidy group, in need of a sort. Estimate = $120.00 $0.00
379 Griqualand West #19/57. Mint Hinged / used selection of 7 better stamps. Included are mint #19, 25 (x2) and used #34, 39, 55 and 57. A nice sound offering of these difficult issues. Owner's older 2014 Scott US$562.50 = $759.40 $11.00
380 Hong Kong #168-173. Post Office fresh and vibrant Very Fine mint Never Hinged 1941 "Centenary" commemorative set of six, all in corner blocks of four (5 of the 6 corner blocks have sheet "counters" in the margin). Note that this set represents the last set issued before Japanese occupation in WWII. A premium set of blocks! 2024 Scott US$420.00 = $567.00 $65.00
381 Iceland #10/234 plus Back of the Book. A lovely collection of early Icelandic issues on old "KA-BE" Ideal pages, with 193 stamps up to 1940. The early "Royal Emblem" issues are attractive with discernable cancels. There is good representation from the few early 20th century "Kings", "Two Kings" and "Jon Sigurdsson" sets. Noted some good overprints and revaluations (including mint #137-138). The "back of the book" is strong, with semi-postals, nice mint airmails including C4-C8 and a good offering of officials including 9 denominations of the 1930 overprinted "Parliament" set. Many are in black mounts added by the previous owner. Great appearance and condition. The catalogue value will add up quickly here. Estimate = $300.00 $65.00
382 Iceland #48/1299 plus Back of the Book. Enticing selection of all mostly mint (just one stamp noted as used) 1902-2013 stamps, souvenir sheets and booklets, neatly laid out on stockpages. This seemingly all-different selection includes 74 stamps, 16 souvenir sheets and 2 booklets. Expect the earlier material to be Hinged, but then shifting quicky with the majority of the "Post WWII" stamps being Never Hinged. 2024 Scott US$424.40 = $572.95 $10.00
383 Iceland #130. Sheet margin used block of 25 of the 1922 issued 5a on 16a brown Christian IX surcharge. A lovely large used multiple, with clean Eskifjordur CDS postmarks dated July 2nd 1922. A bit of slight perf separation as to be expected, but also a perforation anomaly along the bottom of the first row (of particular interest). 2024 Scott US$750.00 = $1,012.50 $0.00
384 Iceland #215/867. A beautiful collection with a few hundred mint and used issues 1939 to 1998 in a 32-page Uni-Safe stockbook with black pages and acetate strips. Includes a mint 1948 Volcano set, #268 mint, and a number of $5.00-$15.00 stamps along the way. Light duplication is where there is both mint and used. From the early 1980’s the issues become primarily used. Makes for a good collection or stock builder. Total 2024 Scott US$678.30 = $915.71 $34.00
385 Japan #127, 129, 131, 133, 138. Fresh and Very Fine mint Never Hinged group of five 1914-1925 "old die" definitives, watermark 141 (zig-zag lines), granite paper, all in choice sheet margin blocks of ten. Scott only lists a value for a Hinged set and the domestic Japanese catalogues add a significant premium for Never Hinged gum. Worth full Scott catalogue. 2024 Scott US$715.00 = $965.25 $80.00
386 Japan #198-201. Bright, fresh and Very Fine mint Never Hinged 1927 issue "50th Anniversary of Japan's joining the UPU" commemorative set of four. Scott only lists a value for a Hinged set and the domestic Japanese catalogues add a significant premium for Never Hinged gum. Worth full Scott catalogue. 2024 Scott Classic US$150.00 = $202.50 $17.00
387 Liechtenstein #663/728. Comprehensive and clean, all Very Fine mint Never Hinged collection of 1979 to 1980 issues, all in 65 full panes of 20, 16 or 4 and all in full sets. Valued as single stamps but the panes are worth a premium in both Michel and Zumstein catalogues. Significant total face value (in Swiss Francs). All housed on top-of-the-line hingeless Lindner pages, in a padded green binder. 2024 Scott US$761.85 = $1,028.50 $10.00
388 Luxembourg #1/202 plus Back of the Book. Old "KA-BE" album pages with a nearly as old collection of 245 different used and (then later) mint stamps covering almost a full century up to 1938. Clean, solid earl issues, most with easily readable cancels. The "Coat of Arms" include imperforate, rouletted and perforated examples. Some nice used "Peace and Commerce" with values to 1Fr and the example of #69 has a cancel which frames the face of Grand Duke Adolphe. There is good coverage of issues through the 1930’s, including semi-postals, airmail, postage due and officials which are scattered throughout. Better than usually seen. Estimate = $200.00 $24.00
389 Malaya and States / Malaysia - Mint and used assembly of 391 stamps, neatly arranged on manila stockpages and an album page. Many better items throughout, including Perak #56 (catalogue $190.00). While there is duplication present, any "extras" were not counted in the total catalogue value. Owner's 2022 Scott US$592.00 = $799.20 $11.00
390 Mexico Guadalajara - Group of three provisional issues from the 1867 series including 1st and 3rd printing stamps, all in mounts on cut pieces from the original collectors album page. An unusual group, which includes #4 (x2) and #17, all VF used. One of the examples of #4 is on a more "pinkish" paper than to be expected, perhaps from envelope bleed on which it was placed. Seldom offered. 2024 Scott US$590.00 = $796.50 $10.00
391 Natal #10-17. Used group of 8 different Queen Victoria 1861-1867 issues. A very useful group, with much nicer examples than usually seen for this issue / period. The Stanley Gibbons numbers for these issues are 19, 11, 12, 13, 15, 21, 23, 25 (2013 Gibbons £364.00). Owner's older 2014 Scott US$437.50 = $590.65 $10.00
392 Natal #11/63. Group of 8 different QV used better issues from the 1861-1877 period. A useful group, nicer than usually encountered. The Stanley Gibbons numbers for these issues are 11-13, 54, 65, 91-63 (2013 Gibbons £397.00). Scott Catalogue numbers are 11-13, 31, 45, 61-63. Owner's older 2014 Scott US$425.50 = $574.40 $10.00

Brilliantly fresh and Very Fine mint no gum block of four of the 1862 issue 3p blue "Chalon Head" (inspired by a portrait of Queen Victooria by Alfred Edward Chalon, rough perf 14 x 14.

Includes the 1902-1903 Edward, Crown CA watermark set to the 2sh6d, plus Crown CC watermark 5sh, £1.00 and £1.10 values, used with CDS cancels (except the £1.00 which has revenue use and not counted). The £1.10 violet and blue green is select used, with CDS cancel and fresh colour (but with minor surface wrinkle, mentioned for the record). These are followed by the 1904-1909 Edward, Multiple Crown CA watermark, complete "POSTAGE REVENUE" set, plus 1sh, 2sh6d and 5sh "POSTAGE POSTAGE", used with CDS cancels (except the £1.10 value which has revenue used and catalogued as such). A nice clean offering. Scott numbers are 81-92, 94, 96, 97, 101-109, 111, 113, 114 (plus #96 with fiscal use, not counted). Owner's older 2014 Scott US$405.05 = $546.80 $11.00
395 Natal - Selection of 31 different 1877-1909 mint Queen Victoria/ Edward VII issues. The examples of 59-60, 64 are unused (no gum), but the balance all have original gum, with nice overall quality (much better than typically seen). A clean offering, which features better items such as #10a, 59-60, 79a ("Ealf" instead of "Half" variety). Owner's older 2014 Scott US457.15 = $617.15 $10.00
396 Natal - Used duplicated selection of 94 used 1862-1909 Queen Victoria / Edward issues, with many better throughout.

397 Netherlands #1/1339. A Dutch treat (or dealer’s stock / collector's spares) of regular issues in a pair of red 32-page Uni-Safe stockbooks. Meticulously organized and identified, right back to the earliest issues and up to 2009. Each line in the stockbook contains a Scott number(s), with an identifying tab. Seems to be predominantly used stamps, of up to 10 of a kind, with readable cancels everywhere! Thousands of stamps, with catalogue values up to about $15.00. Very clean, with no obvious damage noted. Estimate = $160.00 $16.00
398 Netherlands #1/243 plus Back of the Book. A very attractive and quite complete run of 399 mostly used Dutch stamps up to 1941 on "KA-BE" album pages, with many of the better stamps are in black mounts. Starts with a good run up to #33 (the #33 is unfortunately damaged, but the rest appear to be in decent condition), Princess Wilhelmina issues run to 1g, Queen Wilhelmina to 5g and the "tall" King William I issue is only missing the top value. There is a good range of semi-postals (used) and postage dues (mint and used). Condition is a bit mixed in places, but still a very useful collection representing a large overall catalogue value. Estimate value = $300.00 $11.00
399 Netherlands #1-12. Fine/Very Fine used complete sets of the 1852-1867 King Wilhelm definitive sets including nine shades of the 1852 issue 5c imperf (#1). Some "tarnish" noted on the 1867 issue 50c gold (as often seen). 2024 Scott US$933.00 = $1,259.55 $70.00
400 Netherlands #17/85, 83a. Superior and mostly Very Fine all used selection of 64 different 1869 to 1922 period issues, all laid out on two Hagner brand stock sheets. A much nicer than usual quality offering of these useful Dutch classics. 2024 Scott US$791.15 = $1,068.05 $42.00
401 Netherlands #64/281, B1/B169, C1/C10. Remaindered (but still meaty) 1919 to 1947 period high quality collection, all neatly organized in a top-of-the-line black page Lighthouse brand stockbook with matching slipcase. The lot includes definitive, commemorative, airmail and semi-postal sets and singles, often with mint and used examples of each stamp. Take a good look at the scans, as many of the sets are identified for catalogue number. Includes better material like mint #278-81, many very good semi-postals, #C1 through C10, etc. Estimate = $350.00 $10.00
402 Netherlands #86. Fresh and Very Fine mint Hinged example of the 1905 issue 10g orange "Queen Wilhelmina" high value.2024 Scott US$775.00 = $1,046.25 $22.00

Includes regular and semi-postal issues, mainly sets, with all three (A, B or C) perf types represented. Of particular note are six different 1925-1926 Wilhelmina issues in "Amsterdam" CDS cancelled blocks of four. All neatly laid out on four Hagner stock sheets. Take a good look at the scans, as the sets are all identified for Scott and NVPH catalogue number. 2024 Scott US$961.60 = $1,298.15 $80.00
406 Netherlands #226-243, 228a. Very Fine Mint Never Hinged and Very Fine used complete sets of the 1940 issue surcharged "Gull" design types. The lot includes the premium 7½/2½/7½ and 2½/7½/2½ triptychs. 2024 Scott US$252.70 = $341.15 $10.00

High quality 1946 to 2001 period collection, 768 stamps in total, all neatly organized in a top-of-the-line black page Lighthouse brand stock book with matching slipcase. The lot includes definitive, commemorative, airmail and semi-postal sets and singles, often with mint and used examples of each stamp as well as sets on First Day cover. This volume is the intact modern portion of the collection that is represented in several previous lots. Take a good look at the scans, as many of the sets are identified for catalogue number. 2024 Scott US$1,533.30 = $2,070.00 $22.00
408 Netherlands #B1/B761 plus postage dues. Three assorted stockbooks with three phases of Dutch collecting. The first is a 32-page Uni-Safe stockbook with a very organized grouping of semi-postals, with up to 10 of a type, mostly used, followed by less organized group of postage dues. The second is a bit battered Filex stockbook with a few hundred modern used and unsorted commemoratives, heavily in the 21st century. The final is a small, specialty stockbook with a collection of about 100 different perfins. A good a mix of value and material that we don’t see every day. Estimate = $160.00 $0.00
409 Netherlands #B1/O24. Early "Back of the Book" used mix consisting of Semi-Postals #B1-B3 (with proper postal cancels!), Airmails #C1-C3, Postage Dues #J29-J41, and Officials #O1/O24. All laid out and identified on two Hagner brand stock sheets. 2024 Scott US$287.50 = $388.10 $12.00
410 Netherlands - Multi-colour Essay Group. A group of 25 imperforate 1866 Haarlem printing unaccepted essays for the King William III definitive. Note a wide range of paper stocks and colours. A scarce and valuable group of early essays. Estimate = $250.00 $22.00
411 New Zealand #51-56. The first Side Face issue of 1874 complete mint / used mixed set. The 2d, 3d and 8d values are mint Hinged, the 1d has no gum (counted as used), the 4d has a nice 1881 "Blenheim" cancel, and the 1/- has the lightest of cancels. Better appearance and perforation quality than normally seen. 2023 Scott US$735.50 = $992.93 $13.00
412 New Zealand #107/120. Eight mint values from the 1902-1907 version of the Pictorial set with watermark 61. This set shows classic New Zealand scenes, such as Mount Cook and Milford Sound, but is notoriously variable in its quality, as different printings were done in London and in New Zealand. The local printings had difficulty getting the perforations, centering and design/ink clarity right, which makes this issue perfect for specialists. This grouping is in far better condition than normally seen, looking very fresh and with hinging varying from small hinge remnants to Lightly Hinged. A couple have small perforation faults or gum bends, but overall a clean offering. There are two shades and two perforations of the 1/- Kea (bird). Counted as the lowest value in Scott. Total 2023 Scott US$717.50 = $968.63 $13.00
413 New Zealand #111/120. A quintet of watermark or perforation varieties on the Pictorial issue of 1902-1907. Includes Scott #111 (inverted watermark), #117 (watermark inverted, watermark reversed), #120 (upright watermark) and #113k (mixed perforations (p11 horizontally/p14 vertically). Each with a decent, postal cancel, with the perforations and centring typical for this issue. Gibbons breaks these down a bit more than Scott (2018 Stanley Gibbons £1335.00). Catalogued as regular stamps by Scott catalogue, so plenty of upside throughout. 2023 Scott US$771.00 = $1,040.85 $32.00
414 New Zealand #J1/J29, O24/O55. A specialized grouping in need of rebuilding. Forty mint and used stamps, all identified by Scott, but also with notations about perforations, shades and print varieties that await a look in Campbell Paterson. The postage dues include the 10d mint (J9) and both of the 3d brown printings. The Officials include a good range of King Edward VII and King George V issues. In black mounts, we have presumed the mint are Hinged. Counted as the cheapest variety. Total 2023 Scott US$539.35 = $728.12 $10.00
415 New Zealand #O56/O111 plus other Back of the Book. The second half of this specialized grouping in need of rebuilding. Mostly mint offering of officials including the first 1935 set (includes 9d with green overprint), most of the Centennial, King George VI and QEII issues. There are 5 copies of newspaper stamp P1, and a bit scattered range of Life Insurance issues, plus a couple of sets of Ross Dependency issues. The stamps have mostly been identified by Scott, but also with notations about perforations, shades and print varieties that await a look in Campbell Paterson. In black mounts, we have presumed the mint are hinged. Counted as the cheapest variety. Total 2023 Scott US$832.85 = $1,124.35 $10.00
416 Norfolk Island #1/690. Lovely mounted collection of mostly mint up to 1997 in black mounts on quadrilled pages in a green Stanley Gibbons "Senator" springback album (album alone retails for $100.00). A good, but incomplete run, but with most sets being complete and including the occasional better set (definitives, parrot strip) or souvenir sheets (1974 UPU), with the stamps after 1975 being consistently Never Hinged. Lots of great topicals including sea life, ships, butterflies, birds, World War II, etc. About four hundred different stamps, with very little duplication. A very clean collection, not often seen. Total 2023 Scott US$601.20 = $811.62 $32.00
417 Norway #3/245 plus Back of the Book. Old-time Norwegian collection of 182 different stamps on KA-BE album pages. Good start through the "skilling" denominated issues, including the "Coat of Arms" and "Posthorn" issues. The "Ore" era has nice posthorns and there is a complete used "Admundsen" set. There are some nice semi-postal, postage due and official issues and a few "V" overprints to round the collection out. Nice appearance, lots of attractive cancels and good overall condition. Estimate = $200.00 $10.00
418 Orange River Colony #20/53g. Mint Hinged group of 11 better surcharged issues from the 1881-1900 period. The Stanley Gibbons catalogue numbers are 24, 36, 54, 67, 69-72, 74-75, 132 (2013 catalogue value £275.00). The Scott Catalogue numbers are 20, 22, 29, 34, 35-38, 40-41, 53g. A much better group than usually encountered for this period. Owner's older 2014 Scott US$293.00 = $395.55 $10.00
419 Orange River Colony #44/53g. Mint Hinged group of 23 different stamps from the 1900 VRI surcharged issue, including some from the initial printing with level stops, but most from subsequent printings with raised stops and including some thick "V" in "VRI", a "mixed periods" and a few "missing period" errors. A nice clean offering, including both versions of the key 6d on 6d carmine issue. The Stanley Gibbons numbers represented are 101, 102, 102b, 104, 106, 108, 109, 112, 112a, 123, 113, 113d, 124, 114, 117, 128, 118-121, 131, 122, 132 (2013 Gibbons catalogue value £305.15).

420 Orange River Colony #61-69. Complete might Lightly Hinged set of the 1903-1904 Edward VII series of 9 stamps. A choice offering from this British African colony. 2024 Scott US$338.25 = $456.65 $65.00
421 Orange River Colony - Duplicated mint Hinged original gum (a couple no gum) selection of 70 stamps including a good variety of issues, including a scarcer surcharge. Overall quality is very good. Owner's older 2014 Scott US$355.30 = $479.65 $10.00
422 Papua #11-18. Complete mint Lightly Hinged set of the 1906 "Large Overprint Papua" on British New Guinea Lakotoi series, perforated 14, watermark 47. A very attractive set. 2024 Scott US$593.00 = $800.55 $10.00
423 Papua #28-33, 34-40. Duo of mint Hinged / Hinge remnant sets of the "Lakotai" series, including the 1907-1908 issue (6 stamps) and the 1919-1910 issue (7 stamps). Colour, popular issues. 2024 Scott US$213.00 = $287.55 $32.00
424 Papua New Guinea #3/738 plus Back of the Book. Lovely mounted collection of mostly mint up to 1990 in black mounts on quadrilled pages in a red Stanley Gibbons "Senator" springback album (album retails $100.00). Starts with a smattering of attractive Lakatoi boats, and then with fairly full coverage from 1952 with the stamps after 1972 being consistently Never Hinged. Lots of great topicals including sea life, shells, butterflies, coral, birds, airplanes. Several hundred stamps, only duplication is for the occasional pair or Scott-unlisted variety and includes a bit of New Guinea and Northwest Pacific Islands overprints on Australian stamps. A very clean collection, not often seen. 2023 Scott US$704.40 = $950.94 $32.00
425 Pitcairn Islands #1/382. Lovely, mounted collection of mint up to 1993 in black mounts on quadrilled pages in a burgundy "Senator" springback album (album alone retails $80.00). Starts with the first set including the two later issues, Royal Wedding, common design sets and a good mix of definitive and commemorative issues, with a few souvenir sheets in the mix. The stamps after 1970 are consistently Never Hinged. Lots of great topicals including sea life, ships, birds, royals, plants, etc. A total of three hundred different mint stamps. A very clean collection, not often seen. Total 2023 Scott US$519.40 = $701.19 $32.00
426 Poland - Topical themed assortment of 98% Poland, neatly sleeved and arranged within a dealer box 1960's to 1980's. There are sections for Art, Buildings, Exploration, Medicine, Minerals, Animals, Plants, Flowers, Space, Science and Sports (among a few others). Likely 400+ covers, representing a great opportuning for some "show-ready" stock with most of these being priced on the back in pencil between $2-$5. The stamps along would add up quicky, as many of these covers feature complete sets. Estimate = $140.00 $0.00
427 San Marino #C1-C10. Complete used set of the first airmail series issued in 1931, featuring the "View of San Marino", all with choice CDS postmarks. Sadly, there is a "hinge bleed" causing a bit of discoloration of stamps, but still a very hard to assemble series. 2024 Scott US$704.00 = $950.40 $0.00
428 Seychelles #1/256, J10. Four stockpages of mostly mint Seychelles issues from 1890 to 1969. While it is missing stamps from the King George VI era, what is still here is quite worthwhile. Victorian issues include a wide range of "keyplates" with several revalues. The Edward VII issues are Post Office fresh as are the issues from King George V. The Elizabethan issues include the first pictorial issue and common design and commemorative issues up to the space issue. Plus, a single postage due squeaked in too. About 90% of the lot is mint (Hinged). Terrifically identified and laid out to make your life easier! Total 2023 Scott US$408.30 = $551.21 $26.00
429 Sierra Leone #34/162. A pair of stockpages with 67 mint "classics" starting with Victorian "Keyplates" to 1/-, Edward VII to 6d, King George V definitives to 2/- and the 1932 commemoratives to 5/-. The final set is the Wilberforce issue, missing only the three highest values. Beautiful appearance, most are hinged, but this will get you kickstarted on improving your British Africa collection. Total 2024 Scott US$459.10 = $619.79 $26.00
430 Somaliland Protectorate #1/143. A fantastic start to this British African colony on four stockpages, with over half of the issued stamps represented. Starts with some overprints on Victorian and Edwardian Indian stamps, transiting to a few Edwardian and King George V colonial issues. The strength is in the King George VI issues with complete sets, and a complete run of Elizabethan. Alas, no "back of the book", but.90% are mint (hinged), with terrific eye appeal. Total 2023 Scott US$449.85 = $607.30 $22.00
431 South Africa #1/681, B1-B4, C2, C5, C6, J3/J60. Mint and used collection of 769 stamps and souvenir sheets, 1910 to 1986 period issues, all housed in a deluxe SF (Hingeless) Lighthouse album with pages to 1986. A small sampling of Bophuthatswana is also included on computer generated pages. 2024 Scott US$1,907.25 = $2,574.80 $10.00
432 Spain - Attractive "Majo" stamp album with pages up to 1966, holding a good range of mint (often Never Hinged) and to a lesser extent used, starting back in 1874. Strength is in the Franco-era issues of the 1940’s-1950s, with some good supporting "back of the book" material. A few years ago, the previous owner had identified sets and singles cataloguing over $5.00, and this totals US$1,010.00 with a few hundred stamps not catalogued. A rough sample indicates that many of these prices have dropped. Most of the mint stamps are in black mounts with plastic interleaves. Includes matching slipcover (a bit worn). Estimate = $160.00 $10.00
433 Straits Settlements #41/92. Mint Hinged / Hinge Remnant group of 38 QV issues 1882-1899 all neatly displayed on a single Hagner brand stocksheet. Many better throughout, with fresh colours and sharp impressions. Where there is duplication (in a few places) it is because of surcharge varieties or shade differences (not acknowledged in Scott). Plenty of upside if you have your Gibbons catalogue handy! 2024 Scott US$505.90 = $682.95 $32.00
434 Sweden #6/322 plus Back of the Book. Almost a century of early Sweden is represented on these 259 different stamps on 14 old "KA-BE" album pages. Lots of readable cancels noted and includes 8 used values from the first 1924 UPU issue are here and 10 from the second UPU issue. The "back of the book" includes airmails and officials that await your attention. A cleaner than normally seen collection. Estimate = $160.00 $22.00
435 Switzerland - A pair of 16-page blue Lighthouse stockbooks hold what is either a collector’s duplicates, or a dealer’s stock of mostly used stamps, starting with a small group of "Seated" and "Standing" Helvetia’s, with William Tell’s and then moving steadily until about 2010. Typically there are up to 5 of a stamp, which are densely, but chronologically ordered. The second stockbook is the "back of the book" with semi-postals, including some early "Pro-Juventute" issues, a few airmails, an intriguing postage dues and some UN offices issues. This lot has a feeling that there could be potential sleepers here for the specialist with a Swiss specialized Zumstein catalogue handy. Certainly there is some good catalogue value to be uncovered. Estimate = $200.00 $11.00
436 Switzerland - Early Airmail Postal History Offering. A compact but select offering of 7 premium early Swiss flights from the 1925-1945 period, with 4 of them being flown in the 1920's! All but two are registered, with 6 covers and 1 postcard. A visually striking offering, bearing the usually colourful array of early Swiss airmail stamps of the period. Each item is individually described and priced (quite reasonably), never offered for sale, from the stock of a dealer that intended to sell them but never got the chance. Total retail as marked adds up to $345.00. Estimate = $160.00 $11.00
437 Switzerland - Two "red dealer’s boxes" packed full of "102" cards, with an assortment of 5982 mostly used stamps (somebody actually counted) from the early Helvetia issues to about 2002. Most are meticulously organized, identified and some are catalogued. Some better that we noted include (mostly unidentified) sitting Helvetia’s, 4 sets of used #98-#100, lots of semi-postals and other ‘back of the book". On a cursory glance we saw $5.00-$15.00 sets and singles throughout, and some better up to about $50.00 each. There are a few where an attempt was started to identify varieties by Zumstein. Expect some minor faults, but the material looks very clean, and in very nice condition. A perfect collection or stock builder. Estimate = $250.00 $10.00
438 Trinidad #1. VF mint Hinged example of the 1856 issued 1p brick red "Britannia" imperforate on blued paper. A very nice 4-margin example of a "#1" from this country. 2024 Scott US$200.00 = $270.00 $22.00
439 Trinidad and Tobago - Mint and used group of 209 stamps, arranged on stockpages and identified by the previous owner. An interesting run of material, including some better early material (several QV issues with better postmarks). While duplication exists, any "extras" were not counted in the catalogue value. Owner's 2022 Scott US$392.20 = $529.45 $13.00
440 United Nations #39/264. First Day Cover stock in three envelope boxes, with a nicely organized group of about 1200 covers. Includes a range of cachet makers (e.g. Artmaster, Artcraft, Fleetwood), as well as some unidentified. Many are unaddressed, a few are uncacheted. Includes up to about 20 of a type in places. A few have minor edge tone spots. Perfect for the collector looking to expand their UN FDC collection. Estimate = $120.00 $0.00
441 United Nations - Mint collection from 1951 to 1997 mounted on 2-post Minkus pages in a burgundy binder. Very complete, the only obvious omission is the first souvenir sheet, but the collection runs up to the Terra Cotta soldiers - World Heritage Prestige Booklet. Includes New York, Geneva and Vienna issues, including more recent issues where all three offices issued similar stamps. The original face value of the stamps was US$393.00 (NY), SF378.00 (Geneva), AS3300.00 (Vienna), which explains the owner’s (slightly older) total Scott catalogue value US$2137.00. The stamps are mostly hinged. Estimate = $250.00 $22.00
442 United Nations - Mint singles / plate block collection 1958-1982 in 3x White Ace albums (in matching slipcases) many in very nicely added clear mounts. Includes New York, Geneva and Vienna offices. There are also a several folders and about three dozen first day cancel cards. The original face value of the stamps was US$100.00 (NY), SF140.00 (Geneva), AS52.00 (Vienna) plus the cost of the albums. The stamps are mostly Never Hinged, and in excellent condition. Estimate = $150.00 $0.00
443 USA #30B. Sound and Fine/Very Fine used example of the 1859 issue 12c black "Washington", plate III, perf 15½ x 15½. 2024 Scott US$275.00 = $371.25 $15.00
444 USA #65/1730 plus Back of the Book. Mostly used collection in a Scott National album with pages to 1977. The 19th century has fairly typical coverage with commemorative sets to 10c and definitives to 15c. The 20th century is stronger, with lots of Washington-Franklins and Bureau issues, including a range of precancels. The collection is very complete from the 1930’s onward, with some mint sets and blocks scattered throughout. There is some potential in the "back of the book", with airmail, postage due, parcel post and even some overprinted Canal Zone. Binder with some wear, but with lots of life left in it. These albums are getting harder to get at a retail level. Estimate = $180.00 $10.00
445 USA #65/2164 plus Back of the Book. Lighthouse album with pages to 1985 (including back of the book) holding at least 2000 stamps, back to 1865. As with most collections, the 19th century issues are mostly used and in very mixed condition, with some nice cork cancels (the mint examples that you see in the photos are reproductions). The Columbus issue goes to the 50c, Trans Mississippi to 10c and Banknote issues to 50c. The used issues are hinged in-place and the mint usually are in collector-added mounts. Noted complete sets of the "Nebr." and "Kans." overprints and the "back of the book" includes C1-C6, C18 "Baby Zep", Q1-Q12, lots of postage dues and 14 "Duck" stamps. Mint and used are mixed throughout. You can’t get these pages anymore, and the binder is a little dinged up, but its original cost would have been substantial. Estimate = $400.00 $32.00
446 USA #71. Very fresh and Very Fine used example of the 1861 issue 30c orange Franklin (no grill). Unusually well centered for this tough stamp. 2024 Scott US$250.00 = $337.50 $17.00
447 USA #498-504, 506-518. Complete mint Hinged / Never Hinged set of 20 of the 1917-1919 Flat Plate Printing, perf 11 series of the 1913-1915 Washington / Franklin issue. Overall, reasonable Hinged with several of the lower values being Never Hinged. Conservatively valued as a Hinged set (as Scott offers some hefty premiums for Never Hinged stamps in this series). 2024 Scott US$585.50 = $790.40 $22.00
448 USA - Mint / Used and everything in-between. This collector assembled group of mostly modern USA as acquired is housed on about two-dozen mostly Vario brand stockpages, within a binder. The highlight of this group is the modern mint material, including Legends of the West, Norman Rockwell, Civil War, Comic Strip Classics, Deep Sea Creatures, Insects and Spiders, Celebrate the Century and complete booklets. With smatterings of used / postal stationery cut squares and a couple covers in the mix to keep things interesting. Conservatively valued for the usable postage value only. Total face value of the mint stamps US$223.16 in CDN Funds = $307.35 $16.00
449 USA - Pair of three-ring binders with album pages 1981-2002 plus additional material. A mix of mint or used issues. The mint comes in bunches, with lots of souvenir sheets (e.g. Presidents, Columbus, Monroe, Century, Baseball, Space), blocks/sets, booklets and some high value stamps. The used are sometime duplicates of the mint, but a represent a fairly complete offering. There are some "bonus" pages which include some Hawaii, "duck" stamps, officials and pre-sorted/non-profit issues. We have done a loose count of the mint postage and come up with a face value of US$485.77 ($655.79 CDN). Conservatively valued for the face value only. Total face value = $655.79 $10.00
450 USA Collection - Moderately remaindered collection of United States regular and Back of the Book issues, housed in a Minkus "All American" stamp album with pages spanning the period from 1847 to 1967. The collection, very spotty at first, gets going in 1926 with a mint 5c Ericsson Memorial and continues with some degree of completion, all mint Hinged/Never Hinged up to the Finland Independence commemorative in 1967. Also included are several mint booklet panes, commemorative envelopes and New York United Nations, from 1951 to 1967 (mostly complete). Estimate = $250.00 $16.00
451 Vatican - Collection and Pope Francis Topical Collection. Four volume collection, consisting of two Vatican volumes and two Pope Francis volumes. The Vatican proper volumes contain several hundred mint and used stamps, 1930s to 1980s period issues, on "SAFE" brand Hingeless pages or on Scott International pages. The two volume Pope Francis collection, housed in two top-of-the-line "SAFE Dual" Hingeless albums is a massive lot of mint Never Hinged worldwide souvenir sheets and a couple of commemorative covers, all colourful Pope Francis topicals. The new issue cost of these issues alone must have been stupendous. Quite imprfessive an da "must have" collection for any conscientious Catholic! Estimate = $350.00 $32.00
452 Worldwide - A "mixed box" that features a very old-school collection that was cut out of its old album and then remounted on pages, each with its own page protector. There is lots of European and British material here, a binder of 1960’s Poland (including a bunch of sheetlets), some miscellaneous dealer-type material in a couple of smaller boxes, a few album pages with Israeli revenues, an older springback binder with a diverse collection and a couple of stockbooks of miscellany stamps. Every extra bit of space is seemingly filled with album pages, stock pages, presentation cards etc. Lots of fun to be had here. Estimate = $180.00 $30.00
453 Worldwide - A 68 litre Rubbermaid bin 90% full of stamps, stamps and more stamps. A mix of kiloware (lots of Canada), loose off paper (whole world), envelopes and glassines (worldwide, some mint Indonesia). Mostly 20th century, does include some older that looks like could have potential, but frankly there is so much in here it is going to many hours of philatelic fun to get this sorted out. Estimate = $150.00 $22.00
454 Worldwide - A tub of tranches (layers)! This large two-toned 68 litre Rubbermaid storage bin is packed with worldwide stamps, with a significant amount of kiloware and many handfuls, bags or even a couple of shoeboxes of off-paper stamps. Noted a few glassines and packets, most being 20th century. Lots of Canada, United States, Great Britain, but the reality is that this lot is extremely varied, and we have only starting to mint through the first couple of layers. A sorter’s paradise! Estimate = $180.00 $22.00
455 Worldwide - A very nice consignment balance in a bankers box, where each of the six stockbooks didn’t quite have the value to be a lot on their own, but together makes for a worthwhile endeavour. There are two stockbooks laid out for a Great Britain "Machin" stock with a few hundred stamps, mostly used, but some mint with face values to £5.00. This group is ready-made for expansion. There is a 16-page stockbook filled with a mix of used GB, Germany, Scandinavia and Japan. A Uni-Safe 32-page block is half filled with 1990’s Latvian issues. A similar red covered stockbook has a smattering of modern used Germany (but the stockbook is in excellent condition). There is an older Lighthouse divided page stockbook with a stock of used Hong Kong up until about 1983. Canada is represented with a dealer’s "show table" booklet filled with pages of mostly early 2000’s blocks that were soaked off of first day covers, and a sealed copy of the "Millenium" collection. Finally, there is a 2-post Lighthouse red binder and matching slipcase and a near complete package of (unrelated) blank Lighthouse pages. Estimate = $250.00 $10.00

A Harris company stamp and album package prepared in 1968 consisting of 30,000 different stamps in 30 approval books and on Harris album pages (plus one binder).

Notable strengths include Cuba, Germany, UK, Denmark and South America. All are individually sleeved and priced (most between $10-$20). The total retail price marked would likely approach (if not surpass) $2000.00, but the pricing at first glance seems a bit liberal, so we have decided to estimate this group instead. Estimate = $150.00 $28.00
475 Worldwide Covers - A unique offering of 200 covers (often large / oversize) from primarily British Commonwealth countries, as created by an eclectic collector when visiting these countries. Often franking with everything from modern commemoratives / souvenir sheet, but also with a wide range of "older" issued dating back to Queen Victoria, as purchased by the collector to frank these colourful creations (primarily from the early 2000's). The result of which are these wildly stamp creations, covered in better stamps. If you forget about the covers and focus on the stamps used, the general reaction ranges from astonished to bewildered! A good soak ahead for the stamps, or leave to appreciate as they are. Estimate = $250.00 $0.00
476 Worldwide Covers - Assembly of 37 covers / postcards (including 17 from USA) sleeved and priced many years ago for auction sale. Many better items throughout including postage due, censor, registered, airmail and advertising.

Conservatively estimated at less than 10% of the original pricing. Estimate = $200.00 $0.00
477 Worldwide Covers - Pan American Airways Group. An interesting, focused offering of late 1930's / early 1940's mail carried by the Pan American Airways system.

478 Worldwide Covers - Ship / Submarine Topical Covers. Group of 89 covers and 3 postcards, all with a "ship" theme, being either ships on stamps or (primarily) specially prepared ship carried covers with illustrated cachets. While a mix of the world, there is definitely emphasis on US Navy, UK and Spanish ships. There is particular strength in the US Nuclear powered ship "Savannah" and several US Navy Submarines. One of the most eye-catching items is a hand-painted 1986 German cover carried on the ship "Westerwald". A nice group to research further. Estimate = $120.00 $0.00
479 Worldwide Covers - Small felt box, stuffed with a collector's accumulation of worldwide covers. Likely 400-500 covers and postcards in total, of which half are from Ceylon / Sri Lanka which were collected for town postmarks and usages (often identified as such in sleeves / labels made by the collector).

480 Worldwide Covers - Switzerland and Liechtenstein focused (but including other countries) First Day Cover / First Flight / Commemorative Flight offering of 586 covers / postcards within a shoebox.

A great lot for the collector or dealer, estimated at less than 25c per cover! Estimate = $140.00 $10.00
481 Worldwide Covers - Switzerland Postal History. A specialized and individually sleeved, priced and identified selection of 36 covers and postcards. An interesting array of items, including "Tell" issues, airmail and numerous special "National Festival" stationery postcards (which have catalogues dedicated just to them). As opposed to dealer stock, these were priced by the collector but never actually offered for sale. Overall, we actually found the pricing to be quite conservative compared to what we usually see similar items priced at. Total "prices as marked" adds up to $513.50 (with 3 items unpriced). Estimate = $200.00 $0.00
482 Worldwide Covers - Austria - First Day Cover hoard from the 1960’s to early 1970’s. All unaddressed, cacheted with duplication up to about 8 of a type.

A perfect lot for the worldwide collector that does not need the most recent catalogues, but still staying fairly relevant with modern catalogue pricing. The "as new" cost on this run to get a current set of these catalogues is about $1400.00! Estimate = $200.00 $22.00

About 3/4 of the material is from Great Britain (individually sorted by company). The balance includes some Canada, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy plus another 35 countries.

485 Worldwide Postcards - A largely European offering of over 500 postcards, arranged within a dealer "show box". A real mix of material here, ranging from classic early postcards to modern chromes.

Wonderful imagery throughout this group of postcards. Estimate = $150.00 $0.00

A good mix with everything from RPPC (Real Photos) to "chromes". Estimate = $200.00 $10.00

A nice selection of postcards, with topics that include Best Wishes, "Air Brush", Birthday, Easter, New Years, Thanksgiving, Valentine and Christmas. A great mix of cards here, with strength in the pre-1920 postcards (seemingly almost all fall into this category). Most of these postcards are individually sleeved, but few were ever priced. Estimate = $150.00 $0.00
489 Worldwide Postcards - SHIP Topicals. A premium offering of 39 postcards depicting ships from around the world, each selected for being a better quality or early (pre-1920) postcard.

Condition overall is fairly good, but a few have seen better days (including a couple repaired with duct tape). Still, this group would represent at least $400.00 of original retail cost if bought new. Estimate = $140.00 $10.00

The LS-7 has always been the UV lamp of choice for the serious philatelist, used to verify papers and tags, repairs and removed cancels. The LS-7 retails new for over $700.00. I've personally tested this one and it works wonderfully well. Estimate = $150.00 $110.00

Neatly laid-out on computer generated pages, with the stamps in mounts (all appear to be Never Hinged) and with each page within a page-protector. Suffice to say, considerable investment went into this lot before a stamp was even placed in it! The consignor has counted 1093 which appear to be all different, including souvenir sheets. The catalogue value of the group would easily be in excess of US$1500.00 (and likely higher) with the retail price easily being $800.00+.
