Canadian Stamp Auctions
Recent Auction Highlights
10 April, 2010 - Ron Leith Public Auctions
We always look forward to Ron Leith’s sales. Unfortunately, a large part of his offerings are made up of postal stationery which we know little about, but we enjoy looking at the material and learning from his knowledgeable descriptions.
He also offers an assortment of mint and used Canadian stamps which he describes meticulously as to paper type, perforation and cancellation. We particularly liked the Small Queen fancy cancels he included in this sale.
We show below a
number of interesting examples:
Small Queen Fancy Cancels
It’s nice to see the interest collectors have for these Canadian stamps with the fancy cork cancels.
Nice Looking Jubilees
Unusual Perforation Error
We found this perforation error quite intriguing. The sloping perforations on both sides are not obvious at first, but once we focused on them, we then wondered how this could possibly have happened. It’s just another one of those mysteries!
Thanks Ron for an interesting sale and a great catalogue!
