New Publications and Online Store

Since our last newsletter seven weeks ago, we have received an outstanding response to our last two auctions. We were pleasantly surprised by the final results. Again, we thank all of you for your continued support.

During the month of October we were hard at work lotting and getting finalizing publications mailed out. Many of our clients are probably unaware that over the course of a year we send to all corners of world, over 40 printed publications. These consist of public & mail auction catalogues, and from our sister company Gary Lyon (Philatelist) Ltd. rare stamp lists, regular price lists, selected rarities catalogues and other promotional leaflets. Should you be interested in receiving any other publications for the winter months ahead, please let us know and we will be happy to accommodate your request.

As you are reading this, our latest Mail Sale (Closing Date: December 2) and Gary Lyon (Philatelist) Ltd. Rare List No. 462 as well as the Selected Rarities XXXIV edition have all been shipped last week. Our mail sale auction is currently available for perusal on our website; it includes numerous additional scans. On another note, Canadian Stamp News will soon publish on its back-page, our “Old Time Bargains #999” which has been running biweekly, consecutively, for the past 38 years and counting!

In addition to the many hours logged in getting these publications prepared for printing and distribution, we would like to point out that we are always seeking to buy.  Entire dealer stocks to specialized collections to  individual rarities are all of interest and immediate payment is guaranteed. In the month of October alone, we were able to purchase anything from a small selection of stamps to a mammoth 200-carton holding with emphasis on worldwide postal history.

On the online retail side, our website has been revamped with user-friendly tools and is now functioning under a new e-commerce platform, powered by Shopify. This will greatly improve overall efficiency and guarantee secure transactions.

We are still accepting consignments for our forthcoming Winter 2021 auction. Complimentary full “blanket” insurance coverage and a highly reliable door-to-door courier service are some of the benefits we offer to our consignors. Please call us for more details.
