Spain #B64-73, 1927 Spanish Offices and Colonies surcharged 25th Anniversary sets, scarce set, fresh, never hinged, very fine. Signed A. Roig, Barcelona. Scott CV $800, realized $632 including premium.
Canada #387a, St. Lawrence Seaway invert block of four. The great Canadian error. The block has a fingerprint on the gum of the upper left stamp and traces of a light fingerprint on lower left and upper right stamps (as seen with "Canada" upright). These are not uncommon for the Seaway stamps, which were identified in the regular stamp market and handled, however gently, by non-collectors at that time. Unitrade CV $64,000, realized $44,000.
