Lot 157 Canada #MR2D 1915 50c Black Admiral with Two Line WAR TAX Overprint, mint never hinged, very fresh and well centered, extremely fine. A very nice stamp. The 50c War Tax is an elusive stamp, and is rarely found in the superlative quality of the example from the Outaouais Collection. The Unitrade catalogue keeps increasing the NH premium factor for this stamp, and auction realizations for premium examples keep supporting a higher valuation. We expect that this lot will not be any different. Unitrade CV$2,000, sold for C$1,900 plus 17% buyer’s premium.
Lot 567 Canada #118 1925 10c Bistre Brown Admiral with Full Type D Lathework, a fresh and mint block of four, with top stamps lightly hinged, bottom never hinged and strong impression of the lathework, fine-very fine. Ex. Michael Roberts sale (2006), one of the rarest lathework multiples, especially in this superior condition. Accompanied by a 2007 Greene Foundation certificate. Rsv. $8,000. Estimate $8,000.
Lot 474 Canada #120b 1925 50c black brown Admiral Imperforate, a mint never hinged horizontal pair, fresh and extremely fine.
