Stamp Program - Mail & Email Bid Sale
Closes on Friday, 23 November 2018
(postmarked before midnight)
Oxfam Mail and eMail Bid Sale #23 is
scheduled to close on 23 November 2018.
23rd auction features a selection of northern Canada covers, many
Canada and World First Day Cover (FDC) lots, and a wide variety of
inexpensive world and Canadian material, including some 19th C used
Canada stamps. The Canada FDCs have many different cachets, some unique
or little known to us. Wherever possible we have indicated the cachet
maker, but if not please ask for scans at email@example.com. There are
also two FDCs signed by hockey stars, and some commercial FDCs from for
example Atlas Chemical Industries, Schering, EM, the Globe &
Mail. The World FDCs are mostly official post office covers, with
many modern stamps - for example 13 lots of Hong Kong covers 1984-2016.
