Weeda's Weekly Stamp Sale

Bidboard # 1893

Lot # 119





















































Canada Cancels -
BRITISH COLUMBIA POSTMARKS A rather MARVELOUS lot. Many of these items are noted as being under discussion for inclusion in "the next catalogue" as they are presently unlisted. Michael Sagar's MOON 1950-1973 catalogue is included. Many are on #8 fronts, with 40 different closed post offices on the fronts - almost all are "C" for rarity. Hundreds, probably a few thousand more that are not only MOONs but CDS dated. Sub post offices do not offer a rarity factor and there are a few openings of 3 yrs or less (a 1969 Nelson sub 4 and MOON, open less than 1 year; Courtenay Sub 1 open 1971-1972; Surrey Sub 8, open 1969-1971). Here is the possibly unique aspect - there are 18 with special notes attached that speak to the postmarks (mostly MOONs) that look as if they are written maybe by Fred Bailey himself on covers. Some of these are addressed to him, indicating they are unlisted or not known. Includes notes re differences of listed items with side note in red saying, "Mike agrees", with notes such as "New # will be issued" to cover this newfound variety. There is at least one of Arnot's. There are approximately another 100, mostly #8s; on quick view these do not seem to have any rare status. Also 19 black plastic double-sided stock pages with mostly MOON cancels on stamps in sleeves. Finally, a brown envelope with loose stamps with mostly MOONs a few are closed POs such as "Premier BC". Generally Fine overall. Total of 150+ covers plus a few thousand postmarks on stamps and catalogue with scripted additional notes. The student of this area should find a small treasure here. Estimate
