26 October, 2011 - R. Maresch & Son

This was a very impressive sale from the Maresch firm. We poured over the details for hours making discovery after discovery. It was broad and it was deep. We feel guilty for all things we were not able to cover, such as the Large Queen calendar collections and fancy cancels, the Small Queen fancy cancels, the numerous imperforate pairs and the large number of modern varieties.
What we have chosen to focus on are all the stamps that attracted new record prices and there were many. The list covers a broad spectrum of Canadian stamps as you will see below. We hope you will enjoy these treasures.
