13 August, 2011 - Regency Superior Auctions

A full page ad and a front page article in the Canadian Stamp News in August made collectors aware that some very interesting Canadian stamps were being offered for sale in the United States.


Regency Stamp had been appointed official auctioneer for the convention of the American Philatelic Society (APS) in Columbus, Ohio. The auction house offered nearly 3,300 lots for sale including two $1 million consignments.


The Canadian section included a number of rare Canadian stamps such as this 12 Penny Black:


Lot 1708
Scott 3
Catalogue $100,000
Realized $39,600

 

Unfortunately, although it was well centered and came with large borders, the above stamp had a vertical crease along the frame line at right and a horizontal crease in the bottom margin. These defects undoubtedly caused the price realized to be somewhat modest.

 


Lot 1713
Scott 9
Catalogue $3,500
Realized $2,673

 


Lot 1714
Scott 10
Catalogue $6,000
Realized $2,970

 


Lot 1720
Scott 53

Lot 1745

Catalogue $ 4,650

Lot 1752
Scott 387a

The prices realized were converted at the rate of $1 US = $0.99 Canadian.
