Welcome to our last mail auction of 2019. We have had fine autumn weather this year and a shorter winter is predicted, which of course we all hope for.
Over 3,000 lots make up this sale, with the best offering of Canada precancels that we have had in some time, plus good sections of Canada from classics to modern, Newfoundland including postcards and desirable foreign singles, sets and collections.
Of particular note in this auction is the first portion of the ‘Glenwood’ Collection. If you collect used British Colonies you will enjoy perusing these lots. This collector pursued the hobby for more than 70 years and amassed a huge amount of material. Forty large albums and two dozen cartons housed his collection. He was especially fond of perforation and watermark varieties, shades, dies and different printings. For the most part he ignored such things as errors, proofs and plate varieties. Many of the countries were collected according to the Gibbons catalogue. It is the most extensive used collection that we have ever offered. Scarce singles and sets abound. And be sure not to miss the collection balances and other large lots from this impressive holding.
As always, please allow adequate time for your bids to arrive if using the mail.
