17 April , 2013 - Eastern Auctions Limited
This VF vertical
pair has been canceled with a four ring Montreal “21” cancellation.
It shows a very scarce major re-entry (posn. 91, pane A)
This was described as a 5¢ beaver pair, used, with four ring “12” cancellation from Dundas, with a rarity factor of 8. A very nice item. VF.
This little gem was described as VF+ NH and very well centered. But when we turned the image upside down, we found the stamp to be centered a bit to the right. Despite this, the price realized was a very strong one. The record price for this stamp of $1100 was realized at an Eastern sale back in 2010.
3¢ Confederation - Imperforate Pair
Once again, Eastern
has presented a strong group of perfins. Here are two examples
We know next to nothing about the scarcity and value of these pre-cancelled stamps, but it is clear to us that there are specialists who want them and are willing to bid strongly. The results are very impressive!
Here again, we are impressed by the demand and strength of the prices. Just compare them to the regular stamp in used condition. Many of these stamps are off centre and have faults. Yet, because of their scarcity and the fact their value is recognized by the more advanced collectors, they attract unusually high prices.
