Canadian Stamp Auctions
Recent Auction Highlights
17 October , 2012 - Vance Auctions Ltd.
Dear readers, we are in catch-up mode, having been away on vacation in Florida for the past three weeks. It was a wonderful time of rest and relaxation. Now is the time to get back to work!
We think the prices speak for themselves!
Excellent Small Queens
Both stamps were VF NH and the prices were strong. We particularly liked the large borders on the 3¢ stamp. If only all our stamps could be like this!
Block from the Maple Leaf Set
There are 2 types
of the 5¢ Maple Leaf imperforate stamp. The more valuable one comes
with gum on white paper and seldom appears at auction. A NH pair sold
back in 2011 for $2,100. The less valuable one, like the above, comes
without gum and is printed on bluish paper. It usually sells for $300
- $400, but one pair sold back in 2007 for $950. It must have been special.
Quebec Tercentenary - VF Used Copies
look at their "used" Canadian stamps issued after 1900, they
sometimes think they have little value. But, if they have these large
borders and are well centered, they are highly desired and can bring
strong prices like the above.
