Canadian Stamp Auctions
Recent Auction Highlights
31 August, 2011 - Eastern Auctions Limited
As our viewers will see, the two areas of this auction that drew our attention were the very unusual Small Queen varieties and also the stamps of China that seem to generate so much international interest these days.
Scott 159 - An Outstanding Copy
We think this beautifully dated copy is a real treasure and acknowledge with great appreciation the post office clerk, working quietly at his counter back in 1929, who took the trouble and had the good taste to cancel this stamp so carefully.
Here are 2 well known varieties that are missing their normal colours with the result that their backgrounds are just plain white:
Stamps of China
This sale had 134 lots from the People’s Republic of China, including a good number of their popular souvenir sheets. Here’s how 4 of them did:
We plan to keep
an eye on these Chinese stamps sold in Canada to see the trends that
develop. We will also watch sales of the stamps of India. If you are
wondering why, it’s because of the reports we are receiving of
the tremendous interest stamp collecting is enjoying in these two countries
these days. Such interest could well encourage collecting in countries
internationally, including Canada.
Eastern's next sale is a mail auction to be held on October 5, 2011.
