The upper right and upper left stamps in the block are LH with the balance, including the variety stamp, all NH. Conservatively valued as a Fine NH example of the variety only.

63 Canada #1407ai (x 2) Two VF mint NH examples of the famous "Signature Sheet" from the "CANADA 92" international stamp exhibition. Only 10,000 issued. Printed for the CANADA 92 program, these souvenir sheets bear the marginal signature "Paul de Chomedy, de Maisonneuve". Also of note is the fact that these sheets are on Harrison Paper, a different stock than the unsigned sheet (Coated Papers). Both sheets come with the original "Lighthouse" advertising packaging. 2020 Unitrade. $250.00 $80
5622
64 Canada #1534ii VF mint NH example of the unissued 1992 Xmas 52c rate stamp. This stamp was produced for a proposed 50c to 52c rate change that was postponed until a later date. A few of these 52c stamps somehow got out of the post office and into private hands. A rare modern variety. 2019 Unitrade. $200.00 $48
3773
65 Canada #1779a (x 21), 2156 (x 25) VF mint NH investment group of two different undervalued "joint issue" souvenir sheets, consisting of the 1999 Australia/Canada "Marco Polo" sheet (x 21 sheets) containing an 85c Australian stamp and a 46c Canadian stamp, plus the 2006 USA/Canada "Champlain Surveys the East Coast" sheet (x 25 sheets) containing two 39c US stamps and two 51c Canadian stamps. The #2156 sheet has a bar code at lower left, unlike the US produced sheet which has no bar code. Of particular note, and unknown to many collectors is the fact that the Canadian stamps in each of these souvenir sheets have different perforations than the regular issue stamp and are listed in Unitrade catalogue as such (#1779b and #1256a). The combined total face value of the Canadian, US and Australian postage in the sheets is $78.46 with the appropriate conversion rates (US @1.40 and Australian at @.90). 2020 Unitrade. $323.50 $150
4005
66 Canada #2001b Post Office fresh and VF mint NH wholesale/investment lot of 50 examples of the 2003 issue 96c "National Symbols" souvenir sheet of 2. This sheet was a joint-issue with Thailand, issued for the "Bangkok 2003" stamp show. 2020 Unitrade. $500.00 $65
5526
67 Canada #2357iii Extremely scarce Unitrade listed mint uncut press panel of 100 of the 2010 issue self-adhesive Striped Coralroot "P" (permanent) die cut coil. These uncut panes were issued in very limited numbers. This particular sheet format creates horizontal pairs of stamps that are imperforate between. These are very elusive modern varieties, as most collectors were not made aware of this particular format. The present face value of the sheet is $92.00 (but worth more). The pricing in the 2020 Unitrade is not consistent with the actual scarcity of these limited issue sheets. The sheet has a light horizontal fold between the middle rows noted for the record. 2020 Unitrade. $180.00 $70
5822
68 Canada #2642ii VF mint NH 2013 issue "Chinatown Gates" IMPERFORATE souvenir sheet of 8. This special and limited edition sheet was only available in the "Chinatown Gates Collection" and was overlooked as a major modern variety by most collectors. Only 8,888 issued. A real "sleeper" item, undervalued in Unitrade. Note that this imperforate variety ALWAYS sells for close to (and sometimes over) full catalogue. 2020 Unitrade. $180.00 $100
5233
69 Canada #2793i VF mint NH example of the 2014 issue $2.50 Red Kelley from the NHL "Original Six" series, AUTOGRAPHED by Red Kelley. The stamp/card has the proper Canada Post hologram.

71 Canada #2847a (BK623), 3051a (BK686) Two recalled error booklets.

Withdrawn from post offices in a panic by Canada Post, not many reached private hands. The second booklet is the famous November 2017 recalled Hanukkah booklet. This booklet was recalled in a panic by Canada Post (almost within hours of the official issue date) due to the use of the Star of David as a design element, both on the cover and on the pane. The official explanation was that the Menorah is the symbol of Hanukkah, not the Star of David. The new revised booklet has a different cover and pane design. A nice modern OOPs! duo.

200 Worldwide Postcards Dealer's Postcard Stock. Interesting array of topic here in the stock of a dealer who is no longer in the business. It is believed these cards were never actually offered for sale, but rather prepared for sale… then stashed away. Many better cards in this lot including San Francisco Earthquake, Steamships, USA Patriotic and Cape of Good Hope. All cards are priced and sleeved, sometimes with more than 1 card in a sleeve if it makes up a set. A total of 43 sleeves, with a total retail price of $671.00. Good working material for the collector, or dealer who wants to offer some interesting items that have not seen the light of day in some time. Estimate $200.00 $70
