Current Weekly Auction - Closing Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at 11:30 pm Atlantic Time

Welcome to our weekly unreserved auction! This week we have 174 lots, with a strong offering of Newfoundland, Large and Small Queens, and much, much more. 

Important Note: This week, and for the next few weeks we will be offering a specialized group of the Dotted Cover booklets that were issued from 1935 to 1955. These are a very complex area and many of the varieties on offer are very scarce and among one of the more under-valued areas in modern Canadian philately. I have published a post on my blog, which lays out the different varieties and provides some context which will allow you to understand their significance and how they relate to one another. You can access that post by clicking here.

The featured booklets this week are the $1 gift booklet from 1947 and BK40, which was the first 25c booklet from the Postes Postage Issue. BK39 exists with three different staple sizes: 17 mm, 14 mm and 12 mm, The English version of BK40 exists with two different front covers and eight different back covers. So, in total, 16 different English booklets. The bilingual version exists with 2 different front covers and 4 different back covers for a total of 8 different booklets. Some of these are much scarcer than others and we are excited to bring you examples of most all of them, including two error booklets: BK40a with no rate page and BK40b with a 5c and 7c rate page.

Welcome to our current weekly auction! Every week, we take over 150 listings from our stock and offer them with no reserve, to the highest bidder. The rules are very simple:

  1. All bids will appear as a cryptic version of the bidder's last name to preserve anonymity, while enabling you to tell if you are bidding against the same bidder. So "John Doe" would appear as "J****e". 
  2. You must log in to bid. If you do not have an account, you will have the option of creating one on the login page.
  3. You can now bid directly from the auction collections page. You no longer have to go into each individual listing to place a bid. 
  4. The bids that will display are colour coded to provide you an easy way to tell if you are in the lead. A green bid means you are the high bidder, red means you have been overbid and black means you have not yet bid.
  5. The minimum bid for any item is $1 CDN.
  6. Bidding is in $1 increments. 
  7. You are responsible for honouring all bids made. Please respect the integrity of the auction process and do not place a bid unless you intend to honour it in the event that you are successful.
  8. Canadian residents will be charged HST or GST as required by their province.
  9. Unlike e-Bay, Hipstamp or many other online venues this is a true auction in the sense that bidding does not close on an item until 3 minutes after the last bid has been placed. This is done in order to give every interested bidder an opportunity to bid. So, while the target closing time is 11:30pm for all lots, many of these will not close until well after 11:30pm, if they continue to receive bids after 11:27pm.
  10. After the close of the auction, you will be notified as to which lots you were successful on and will be directed to checkout to complete your purchase.
  11. Discount coupons do not apply to auction purchases. 
  12. In the case of ties, the earlier bid always wins.
