Mail and eMail Bid Sale #22 is scheduled for May 2018.

Welcome to our 21st auction containing, as usual, a variety of mainly inexpensive material that we hope will appeal to all types of collectors. There are more low- priced covers than usual, both individual covers and bulk lots, as well as more FDCs. There are many lots supporting a transportation theme throughout the bulk, covers and stamp sections. As you can see from the illustrations above, ship material in particular stands out:  a maiden voyage, paquebots, postcards, Gibralter and other FDCs, even an Empress of Ireland” 1910 breakfast menu and a 1967 cross-Canada “canoemail” cover.

Here is the link to our new Facebook page where we will post up to date information about our auction, our mail order price list and other snippets about our work. Please “like” us so you will be kept in the picture – we promise not to overload you with details!  https://www.facebook.com/oxfamstamps/

As usual, please let us know if you would like to see a scan that is not up on our web site. For those in the Ottawa area or visiting, we will also be holding a viewing day at the Oxfam National Office on Wednesday 15 November, 10am – 4pm.

As you probably know, we use Canada Post for our mailing, and we plaster stamps all over our parcels. When you bid, please keep in mind that postage costs are higher for small parcels than for large ones over 1kg – so it is often better to win more than one lot, and some of our customers add some mail order items after they know which auction lots they have won, to save on postage. We hope you find many items 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.
