Canadian Stamp Auctions
Recent Auction Highlights
29 May , 2013 - Eastern Auctions Limited
These were very nicely cancelled and described by Eastern as VF. A number of these Jubilees have sold recently for strong prices. In our view, they are rare and well worth it.
We couldn't get over the price paid for this little beauty. It was described as XF NH and perfectly centered. The price was very strong and set a new record, beating the previous record of $450 set in 2008.
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.
The above stamp was also described as XF NH but was not quite as well centered. Nonetheless, it drew a strong price, well above catalogue. It was the second best price in the past 10 years.
10¢ Memorial Chamber - Imperforate Pair
Both of these stamps were nicely centered VF NH and sold for strong prices. We continue to be impressed by the strength of the market for Canada's perfin stamps.
Canada Bar Pre-Cancels
What an extraordinary stamp. It was described as “20¢ olive green Numeral issue, Style T, Vertical, double, well centered, very rare pre-cancel, ex Walburn, VF.”
Canadian Plate Blocks

must be disappointing for US collectors to see the prices paid for their
imperforate pairs. These are regularly sold in Canadian auctions at
prices well below catalogue. Here are a few examples from this sale:
All three were described as VF NH.
This sale had one new record price:
Eastern's next sale will be held on July 10, 2013.
