Rare lathework, plate pieces and sought-after varieties are also present. Now well over 100 years old, the attractive and complex Admiral series has become the new classic!

There is a remarkable range of Canada superb quality stamps, proofs and imperforates, valuable modern errors and interesting Back-of-Book. The large lots & collections will no doubt prove to be very popular, with intact holdings and numerous specialized lots from classic stamps to postal history.
