Mail and eMail Bid Sale #18 closed on 20 May 2016.

Welcome to our first auction of 2016. We are pleased that there is still strong interest in collecting current Canadian stamps, even though new material is in short supply. And although we have lost some of our major large stamp sources to the on-line world and to privacy concerns, we are now supported by many more smaller but regular donors such as schools and churches.  Modern material is still coming in, but a little more slowly.

This auction contains the usual variety of new and old material including both individual and bulk lots of Canadian and worldwide stamps, covers, albums, small collections and miscellaneous. It is difficult for us to describe these accurately in the short space available in the catalogue, and the lack of detail may present a challenge for mail bidders. So, if we can help you decide what to bid on by providing scans or additional information, please let us know and we will do our best. For those in the Ottawa area or visiting, we will also be holding a viewing day at the Oxfam National Office on Wednesday 11 May from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

This auction also includes many coin lots, Canada first day covers with special cachets, and many postcard lots (eg realphotos, mint,  used, some “Dear Doctor” cards). We hope you find something of interest.

Some scans are on the web at http://www.ohmygosh.on.ca/. If we miss scanning the image of a lot in which you are particularly interested, please let us know and we will send it to you or upload it to the website.

Basic Information for Bidders:
No Buyers Premium: what you bid is what you pay, except for postage charges.
