75 Canada #1693ii VF MNH pane of 4 of the $5.00 Moose "Extra Moose" variety consisting of a strong offset of the brown Moose, showing a clear impression facing left on the gummed side instead of facing right as on the front. A great mate for the Missing Moose variety. Unitrade states only 200 examples have been reported. Priced as four singles. 2017 Unitrade. $400.00 $230
5614
76 Canada #1760a/1976a Well organized collection of 1998 to 2003 period issues, almost all in mint VF NH singles, complete booklets, panes, souvenir sheets, plate blocks, coil rolls (slightly flattened) and coil strips.

Total face value. $968.98 $575
5233
77 Canada #1767/2194, 2465b, 2467b Mint NH collection of 1999 to 2006 period issues (plus a couple from 2010), all archivally stored on hingeless pages in the original Lighthouse album, plus the 1999 issue hard cover Millennium collection book.

3398
78 Canada #1991C-1991D Two complete 2003 issue Canada-Alaska Cruise Ship Sheets. Both Post Office fresh and VF MNH. These very limited edition promotional "Picture Postage" stamps were only issued for use on the 2003 season Alaska route cruise ships and are much scarcer than the Unitrade catalogue value would suggest. The 10 undenominated se-tenant stamps in each sheet were (and still are) valid for use as first-class international letter mail. The official printing figures total 50,000 but many were probably still unsold at the end of the cruising season and destroyed. We rarely find these sheets in collections we handle. 2017 Unitrade. $200.00 $95
3398
79 Canada #2045i-2048i Complete set of 2004 "Write Me, Ring Me" issues consisting of four different special cards, each containing 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 and dog thematics have since been gobbled up by the topical market. Look for sets to increase greatly in price in the next few years. All still sealed in the original Canada Post packaging. 2018 Unitrade. $160.00 $75
5614
80 Canada #2104/2241a Well organized collection of 2005 to 2007 period issues, almost all in mint VF NH complete booklets, panes, souvenir sheets, plate blocks and coil strips.

A varied and high quality lot of modern mint material. Total face value $575.81 $350
5229
81 Canada #BK623 Hoodoos Booklets. Two 2015 issue UNESCO World Heritage Sites Booklets. Both in VF mint condition. These examples of the rare recalled $7.20 self-adhesive booklet of six x $1.20 stamps each include two of the mis-identified "Hoodoos" stamps. Withdrawn from post offices in a panic by Canada Post, not many reached private hands. This booklet duo will be perfect for exhibition and display, as the wrong "Hoodoo" is also illustrated on the booklet cover. Estimate $150.00 $90
5536
82 Canada #C3i Fine mint NH plate #2 plate block of eight of the 1932 issue 6c on 5c airmail with the third stamp from the left in the top row (sheet position 4) showing the "swollen breast" constant plate variety. Canada's second airmail plate variety! Valued as the FNH variety plate block of 6 and two regular FNH singles. An eyecatching positional showpiece. Some minor perf separation in the margin noted for accuracy. 2017 Unitrade. $280.50 $60
5038
83 Canada #C5i VF MNH example of a very distinct example of the scarce yellow brown shade of the 1935 issue 6c Daedalus airmail. Much harder to find than the catalogue value would suggest. A mint Hinged normal (red brown) stamp includes for comparison. 2017 Unitrade. $111.00 $130

84 Canada #C5iv Pristine and VF mint NH sheet margin example of the 1935 issue 6c red brown "Daedalus in Flight" airmail, with the Unitrade listed shilling stroke "AIR" constant plate flaw (position 10). This particular stamp shows the sharpest example of this undervalued flaw that I've ever encountered. See the illustration in the Unitrade catalogue to see how indistinct the variety usually appears. 2017 Unitrade. $150.00 $160

5614
106 Canada #OX4 Attractively centered and F/VF mint NH example of the 1913 issue brown black officially sealed stamp. Very hard to find Never Hinged. Some dealers/auction houses would be tempted to value this stamp as a "split grade" F/VF at $350.00 (VFNH @$600.00 + FNH @$100.00 2 = $350.00). 2017 Unitrade as Fine NH. $100.00 $36

Medium sized (looks big to me) U-haul moving carton packed with late 1930s to early 1950s period GeoVI low value definitives, roughly sorted for Mufti, War Issue and Postes/no Postes series stamps. The vast majority are still on close cut single paper and according to the consignor, completely unpicked for cancels. A quick look indicated a decent range of quality CDS, duplex and other cancel types. The total weight of the lot, including the box is 15 kilograms (33 lbs). This could be just the right winter project for the mid-century cancel fan. Estimate $100.00 $30
3701
110 Canada Meaty Balance of Consignment. Green Lighthouse brand stockbook packed with 1890s to 1990s period mint material, both regular and "Back of the Book" issues.

While there are almost no individual high values in this lot, the total catalogue and retail value will add up to a substantial amount. A great lot for the Canada specialist. Estimate $250.00 $170
4841
111 Canada Mint Blocks and Booklets. Cigar box packed with VF mint NH quality plate blocks (mostly in sealed matched sets) and intact booklets (late GeoVI era up to the 1990s).

I have no idea why these scarce tomes aren't listed in Unitrade. Estimate $150.00 $80
4858

Needless to say this type of material is very hard to find now and is only getting harder to find with every passing year. This particular supplier regularly offers us a superior quality mix, with the inevitable bidding war proving their true worth in the modern used Canada marketplace. Unfailingly one of our most popular modern offerings. Estimate $250.00 $280
5435
114 Canada and Worldwide Covers An eclectic mix of approx 400 covers and postcards (mostly Canadian) but also including a smattering of USA FDC and foreign odds and ends.

To round out this exquisite literary and technical offering is a top of the line Lighthouse black page stockbook, still in the original shrink wrap. These indispensable tools for the serious student of Classic Canada had huge original prices as new and tend to be very hard to find due to extremely small print runs. Estimate $300.00 $425
5271
118 Canada Literature Pugh Fakes, Forgeries and Counterfeits. Three volume (small 3-ring binders) set of the earlier (#1/#11) releases of Ken Pugh's lifework masterpiece "Reference Manual of BNA Fakes, Forgeries and Counterfeits", 1977 to 1981 period publication dates.

5614
126 Canadian Provinces - New Brunswick #5P Proof in brown (no specimen overprint) of the 5c Connell on india paper. Internal tear at right (repaired with paper backing) noted for the record. As the actual stamp was never issued to the public, this is the only reasonable way to fill that empty space in your album. 2017 Unitrade. $300.00 $130
3205
127 Canadian Provinces - New Brunswick #6, 6a Mint examples of both the red lilac (HR part OG) and brown lilac shades (no gum) of the 1860 issue 1c locomotive. Nice to get both shades at the same time. 2018 Scott US$142.50= $178.13 $42

3534
130 Canadian Provinces - Newfoundland #13 Fine and sound used, lightly cancelled example of the 1860 issue six pence orange "Heraldic Flowers" imperf. A very pretty stamp and the second scarcest issue of all the 1860-1862 imperforate pence stamps. 2018 Scott US$1,100.00= $1,375.00 $260

4356
137 Canadian Provinces - Newfoundland #32, 33, 34, 35, 36 Mint quintet of 1868-1893 issues with the Edward, Prince of Wales and Queen Victoria portraits. The 3c blue is probably regummed but all the other stamps are OG Hinged. A much fresher offering of these 19th century classics than is usually found. 2017 Scott US$935.00= $1,168.75 $100

Mostly F/VF mint H, a few NH. All conservatively valued as mint hinged basic shades. This (in my opinion) is the best BNA issued WWI thematic set. See the next lot for the rare Prussian Blue 15c value. 2018 Scott US$326.75= $408.45 $140
4356
141 Canadian Provinces - Newfoundland #124b VF mint OG Hinged example of the very rare Prussian Blue shade of the 15c value from the 1919 "Trail of the Caribou" WWI commemorative set. This is a particularly elusive and contentious shade, so it's imperative for this stamp to have a recognized certificate of authenticity. A 2017 Vincent Graves Greene photo certificate which states "genuine in all respects" fits the bill quite nicely. 2017 Unitrade. $400.00 $400
