Lot 313 Canada #108c 1923 3c Brown Admiral, Dry Printing, mint never hinged, quite fresh and well centered among four large margins, extremely fine. Accompanied by a 2018 Greene Foundation certificate. Unitrade CV$150, sold for C$160.00 plus 17% buyer’s premium.
Lot 116 Canada #36 early 1872-73 2c Deep Green Small Queen, Perforated 11.85, First Ottawa Printing, mint with full pristine original gum, never hinged, well centered amongst four large margins with “Post Office” fresh colour, extremely fine. An exceptionally rare stamp in this condition, as very few 2c stamps were printed during the First Ottawa printing period (limited to 1872-73 for the 2c value). Despite not having its own Unitrade number, this stamp is highly sought after by connoisseurs, and this may well be the finest example known, as we do not recall seeing a premium never hinged example of this stamp having been offered anywhere. Estimate $500, sold for C$1,300.00 plus 17% buyer’s premium.
