Harmer’s Auction of Canadian Stamps
On May 22, 2008
We have just become aware of an extraordinarily auction of Canadian stamps offered by Harmers on May 22, 2008 that they have titled “The ‘Mount Royal’ Collection”. The auction is being held at their auction facilities in Bethel, CT., USA.
The material is quite exceptional and covers a broad spectrum of stamps from classics to modern. We find the stamps to be on a scale with the Canadian stamps found in the Dr. Choi-Lok Tang and Sir Gawaine Baillie collections that appeared at auction in the U.S. back in 2006.
Here are a number of the more interesting examples from the sale:
We plan to do a full report on the sale once the prices realized are in.
