Shreves Galleries Inc.
We have to admire the ability of Spink Shreves in its successful efforts to attract attention to this outstanding auction of BNA stamps. Held in New York on January 27th, the sale featured the only known copy of the 12 Penny Black in NH condition. We counted 10 new record prices. These included 3 Canadian stamp varieties listed in the Unitrade Specialized Catalogue, but for which we have no previous record of their sale an auction.
(The prices realized have been converted at the rate of $1.00 Cdn. = $.99326 U.S.)
