General Sale
British Commonwealth with Specialized Elizabethan
British North American Rarities
Canada Early Postal History, Proofs, Two-Ring Numerals
Mint Sheets, Modern Errors, Pioneer & Semi-Official Airmails

An impressive two-day sale featuring noteworthy consignments including the Cam Grosjean British Commonwealth Elizabethan era mint collections. Many countries and colonies are represented with varieties, re-issues, elusive printings, provisional surcharges and major errors including Barbados postage due with inverted centre, St. Helena Tristan Relief fund set. An unusually strong British North America section offers outstanding classic stamps of British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland with many rarities. Postal history of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia with bisect usages and scarcer rates is particularly remarkable.

Canada Pence & Cents section is replete with choice stamps and covers including rarely seen usages, combinations and rates. A specialized collection of two-ring numeral cancels on Large Queen stamps and covers, diligently assembled over four decades, acquiring many of the rarities from well-known collections of the past. Organized in numeral sequence from Montreal two-ring “1” to Newmarket “60”, collectors will find choice singles with select strikes as well as useful selections, beautiful covers including no less than 10 earliest reported dates, one of which is the only known cover. Our Large Queen to Back-of-Book section offers a mint sheet collection, one of the best offerings we have seen in many years from 1897 Jubilee issues to the 1940s including high values. Extraordinary Large Queen mint multiples, Diamond Jubilee proofs, King George VI era rarities, outstanding modern errors and pioneer flight & semi-official airmails stamps and covers, concluding with our signature offering of large lots and collections, are not to be missed.
