75 Canada #929i, 929 VF mint NH matched set of plate blocks of the Unitrade listed "brown background" variety of the 1983 issue 48c "Cradle" medium-value definitive. Previously thought to be a magenta missing colour error, the colour variety is actually due to an anomaly in the ink used by the printer. A very distinctive error of colour. The lot also includes one VF mint NH plate block the true colour for conclusive comparison. 2018 Unitrade. $1,005.00 $160
4295
76 Canada #1155-1161, 1170-1179 VF mint NH matched sets of plate blocks of the basic 1987 "Mammal" definitive issues, 1c to 78c values, all still sealed in the Post Office packaging. A popular series, getting harder and harder to find. 2018 Unitrade. $379.00 $110

5038
78 Canada #1283a-1286b Eight complete sets of all four 1990 issue Petro Canada 39c "Majestic Forests" mini-panes of four, all VF MNH. These panes were produced as a special promotion for Petro Canada. Getting hard to find. 2018 Unitrade. $400.00 $55

5038
80 Canada #1534ii VF mint NH lower left position inscription block of four of the unissued 1992 Xmas 52c rate stamp. This stamp was produced for a proposed rate change that was postponed until a later date. A few of these 52c stamps somehow got out of the post office and into private hands. A very rare modern variety inscription block. 2018 Unitrade. $950.00 $210
5631
81 Canada #1534ii, 1535ii The rare and unissued 52c and 90c value 1994 Xmas proposed and rejected rate changes, both VF MNH. Fewer than 1,000 examples of the 90c stamp exist. The Post Office intended to increase the postal rates from 50c and 88c but changed their minds at the last minute. Somehow a few of these stamps made it onto the market. Oops! A famous modern "administrative" error. 2018 Unitrade. $800.00 $230
3909
82 Canada #1630ai VF MNH investment lot of 50 of the 1997 Year of the Ox souvenir sheet of two x 45c Lunar New Year stamps with the additional limited edition "Hong Kong 97" logo printed in lower right corner of the sheet.

3912
83 Canada #1812-1834 The 1999-2000 Millennium miniature sheet set of 17 panes, both VF mint NH and on Canada Post First Day Covers. Total face value of all the mint stamps is $31.28. Becoming an increasingly difficult group to assemble, particularly on FDC. 2018 Unitrade. $238.00 $60

Lot consists of 50 of each of the 89c Yellow Ladys Slipper, $1.05 Pink Fairy Slipper and $1.49 Himalayan Blue Poppy.

5604
85 Canada #2299f, 2305f, 2366c Exceptional investment opportunity consisting of ten complete VF MNH complete sets (all still sealed in the original souvenir packs) of the limited edition gold, silver and bronze "Vancouver 2010" overprints in the selvedge of three different Olympic souvenir sheets.

86 Canada #BK43b (English) Top quality VF investment lot of ten 1950 issue GeoVI "chewing gum" format booklets, each booklet containing one pane of 3 of each 1c green (#284a), 3c rose (#286a) and 4c dark carmine (#287a). The covers are Type II and there is no rate page. 2018 Unitrade. $420.00 $46
870
87 Canada #BK623 (x 2) Hoodoos Booklets. Two 2015 issue UNESCO World Heritage Sites Booklets. Both in VF mint condition. These examples of the rare recalled $7.20 self-adhesive booklet of six x $1.20 stamps each include two of the mis-identified "Hoodoos" stamps. Withdrawn from post offices in a panic by Canada Post, not many reached private hands. This booklet duo will be perfect for exhibition and display, as the wrong "Hoodoo" is also illustrated on the booklet cover. Estimate $150.00 $65
5233
88 Canada Recalled Hanukkah Booklets. Two VF mint intact examples of the extremely scarce recalled 2017 Hanukkah self-adhesive "P" booklets of 10. These booklets were recalled by Canada Post within hours of issuance, with severe consequences threatened for any post office or outlet disobeying the order. These booklets are proving to be the scarcest recalls in recent Canadian philatelic history. The problem was the use of the Star of David as a motif, on both the front cover and on the "colour key" in the lower right corner of the pane. Estimate $150.00 $70
5233
89 Canada #E2a Fresh and exceptionally well centered VF mint NH example of the scarce 41mm wide wet printing (scarlet shade) of the 1922 issue 20c Special Delivery stamp.

These more recent issues are much harder to find than the older issues and this scarcity is reflected in the higher catalogue values of the blocks. 2018 Unitrade. $450.00 $55

5760
116 Canadian Provinces - British Columbia #9 Used example of the 5c on 3p perf 14 x 14 bright red "Seal of BC" 1869 issue with light blue (NELSON) cancel. Significant horizontal perf shift (showing part of the adjacent stamp at left). An interesting shift, proving that the 3p stamp was overprinted "5. CENTS. 5" prior to perforating. 2019 Scott US$250.00= $325.00 $150
1174
117 Canadian Provinces - British Columbia #11 Used example of the 1869 issue 25 cents on 3p orange "Seal of BC", perf 14 x 14. Sock on the nose "10" numeral cancel in black (William's Creek). A few irregular corner perfs at upper corners noted for the record. 2019 Scott US$325.00= $422.50 $160

5115
121 Canadian Provinces - Newfoundland #60i Exceptionally well centered and VF Jumbo margin mint no gum example of the 1890 issue 3c slate Victoria, on red tinted paper. This was caused by shipwreck seawater soaking the shipment of stamps while on the way to delivery in Newfoundland, the red colouring from the packaging staining the stamps. Needless to say, these almost always come no gum (sometimes traces of OG are found). 2018 Unitrade lists this stamp at $75.00 but it is actually much scarcer (especially in this grade) than the catalogue value would suggest. Estimate $150.00 $170

5342
134 Germany #49, 51 Post Office fresh, mint NH examples of the 1889 to 1900 period 20pf and 50pf "Imperial Eagle" issues. Both valued as the least expensive shades (but could be the better types). Pristine and unblemished original gum. 2018 Scott Classic US$167.50= $217.75 $70
4054
135 Germany #B5/B282 Moderately comprehensive run of the semi-postals issued between 1923 and 1944. All fresh and F/VF mint Hinged or used, neatly arranged on the original quadrille album pages. 81 different stamps total. While there is no toning noted, a number of the stamps in this lot have adhered to the pages due to storage in humid conditions. Many of the stuck down mint stamps could be removed from the pages by rolling each page on a table edge or by soaking them off (removing the gum completely). 2018 Scott US$773.45= $1,005.49 $60
5189
136 Germany #C57-C58 Mint NH examples of the 1936 issue 50pf dark blue and 75pf dull green "Hindenburg" airmails, in corner blocks of four and singles. The gum is unblemished and undisturbed, which is scarce but "bad news" because the gum contains a good amount of sulfuric acid which eventually destroys the paper. These are already beginning to show signs of acidification and there is some minor perf separation. Washing off the gum will neutralize the problem. 2019 Scott for Mint no Gum $195.00= $253.50 $36
5189

Blue stockbook containing hundreds of nicely organized duplicated mint and used 19th to mid-20th century definitives and Officials, all identified and valued by 2006 Michel catalogue.

140 Great Britain #1, 5, 6, 109 Decent looking but all faulty used quartet of 1840 to 1884 high value Classics. The #1 has a nick out of the right side, the #5 and #6 both have the commonly occurring paper splits along the vertical silk thread lines and the Sock on the Nose CDS cancelled #109 has a tear at lower right. Huge catalogue value and actually not an unattractive group. 2018 Scott Classic US$3,270.00= $4,251.00 $150
5242
141 Great Britain #4/290 Massively valuable used collection of Victoria to George V issues neatly laid out on 17 double sided Vario pages. Heavier duplication in the "Kings" period. Many individually valuable stamps including better plates. The odd small fault noted. 2018 Scott US$7,200.00= $9,360.00 $210
5342
142 Great Britain #4/125 All used collection of 1841 to 1900 period all Queen Victoria issues, all mounted on nicely designed computer generated pages. Remaindered from a more comprehensive collection but there are still a good number of useful and valuable individual items in the lot. Take a good look at the scans to appreciate the range of material and to read the consignor's pencil notes pertaining to plates and varieties. Expect a few faults in the group as well as some minor 19th century "gems". Estimate $250.00 $400
3266
143 Great Britain #94, 95, 96, 109 Pretty showing of four 1883-1884 Queen Victoria used stamps. The 2sh6p lilac is a perfin and the 10sh ultra has a "Telegraphs" cancel. 2019 Scott US$1,015.00= $1,319.50 $85
