Sale 34 Will Be September 22nd-23rd, 2020

We are pleased to announce our September 2020 Sale #34.

Our June sale was again a huge success, with a hammer of just under $1Million plus many new buyers and consignors. This sale is a little more subdued, but still contains many interesting items, with our usual wide range of material for every collector or dealer, with something for every budget. The sale will again be conducted without a public floor, which has been proven (as in our last sale) not to be a deterrent to successful sales.

Sale #34 Catalogue

Here are some highlights from this sale:
• Extensive, advanced collection of used People’s Republic of China stamps in six volumes

We are confident that you will find something you like in this sale. Don’t forget that all our sales are conducted in Canadian dollars, and that our buyer’s premium remains at an industry low of 17%. Please visit Stamp Auction Network to look at all our high quality scans and place your bids, both before it begins or live during the auction. Our online images include nearly 10,000 scans, and we apologize that some are smaller than usual and therefore not up to our usual high standards.

Lastly, our January sale promises to be an important one, with many consignments already on hand. We are always on the lookout for more nice, quality material, with our promise that it will be well grouped and described, with many illustrations; we always have at least one photo or scan per lot, with some lots having hundreds. With Stamp Auction Network live internet bidding we cover the world in terms of potential buyers for your material.

Enjoy the sale!
