Recent Auction Highlights

12 September, 2008 - Lex de Ment Ltd.

We welcome Lex De Ment and his wife Gloria back to the Canadian stamp auction scene. It’s a tough business, not for the faint of heart, but Lex has had a few decades of experience in the business and knows it well. For the past few years, he ran Ron Brigham’s auction business and before that he had his own business. Now he has returned to running his own show again, this time at Niagara-on-the- Lake, a beautiful spot which is where he held his first mail auction on September 12, 2008.

We present below some of the highlights from his inaugural sale. It contained a number of real beauties:
