Recent Auction Highlights

26 June, 2012 - Sparks Auctions Ltd.

In the introduction to the Sparks Spring auction, the following statement was made: “In every section of Canada, we have stamps that delight”. We can certainly agree. The catalogue was full of interesting Large and Small Queens, Jubilees and Admirals. We noted some beautiful die proofs and a wonderful Queen Elizabeth Exhibit Collection of Wildings and Cameos.

Here are some of the highlights:
