One consignment from the West offers 24 lots of one of the best collections of Admiral issue flag cancels ever formed. The individual assembling this collection understood how rare some of these cancels are, and he helped set many record realizations in obtaining his better items. Some of these previous realizations are provided with the lot listings for information purposes, but generally the more conservative values shown in the 2007 edition of the Coutts’ Slogan Postmarks of Canada catalogue have been used for valuation. These lots represent a great opportunity for anyone interested in, or starting out in, the challenging field of Admiral postal history.
See lots 1006-1023, and 1072-1077 (lot 1019 shown above.)
Happy New Year and best wishes for health and prosperity in 2009 from Sparks Auctions!
