SOME OF CANADA’S GREATEST COLLECTIONS

Over the past 10 years since our website started, we have had the privilege of reviewing a number of outstanding Canadian stamp collections. The names are well known in the stamp community and, as we reviewed them, it made us realize how international the interest in our stamps is. For this we are most fortunate. We plan to keep this report up to date as we review other “name” collections appearing at future auctions. Click on the auction of your choice and enjoy the achievements of some of the giants of our hobby.

Old Auction Catalogues
Of Name Collections Wanted

Some of these collections appeared at auction many years ago. Even though they are old, they may be of special interest when they contain outstanding single copies of rare stamps or blocks and other multiples that have since been broken up.

If any of you, our viewers, have copies of old auction catalogues that feature other outstanding “name” collections that you would be willing to lend to us for a week or two, we would be more than pleased to use your catalogues to do a write up of that collection and thank you for your help. Just let us know by clicking on this link or the “Please Contact Us” on our Home Page and send us a message. We thank you in advance.
