9 October , 2013 - Eastern Auctions Limited
This 12 1/2¢ showing the early image of Queen Victoria came in the blue green shade. The stamps in this set had unusually narrow margins making it very difficult to centre them, but this one did pretty well. It shows part of a foreign receiving cancel in red.
What a lovely copy. It too featured an early image of the Queen. It was printed on thin paper and came with light concentric rings cancellation. We like the way the cancel is so light, one can easily see through it. It sold over two times catalogue.
1¢ Small Queen - Imperforate Block
6¢ & 8¢ Maple Leafs - NH
Here are two VF NH stamps from the Maple Leaf set. Their centering was better than usual and the bidders`prices reflected that.
Here`s another example
of a used stamp which has been lightly cancelled selling for more then
catalogue. It was judged to be XF by Eastern, but unfortunately had
one nibbled perf.
This is perhaps the finest of the stamps in our review. It was XF NH and sold for well over catalogue which is no surprise for a stamp from the Admiral set in this condition.
