Canadian Stamp Auctions
Recent Auction Highlights
13 April, 2010 - Harmer's International, Inc.
This auction house, located in Yorktown Heights, NY, held one of its public auctions in March at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City. Most of the 1131 lots were from the U.S., but in the British Commonwealth section, there were 31 individual lots of Canadian stamps.
In our review of
these Canadian lots, we identified these three beautiful stamps that
any collector would be proud to own:
The second stamp (Scott 8) also has generous borders and a beautiful dated postmark from Hamilton.
The third stamp (Scott 9) is the one that impressed us the most. It is one of our favorite stamps that is underpriced in the catalogues. Two years ago another used copy sold at auction for a record price of $8,050, otherwise this would have been a new record. We compared the two and would have chosen this one over the other.
This completes our brief review of the Canadian items. They were quite special and worth noting.
prices realized in this sale were converted at the rate of $1 U.S. =
