Our 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 stamps@oxfam.ca. 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.

Here is the link to our Facebook page where we will post up to date information about our auction, our mail order price list and other snippets about our work:  https://www.facebook.com/oxfamstamps/.  You can also follow us at www.ohmygosh.on.ca.  For those in the Ottawa area or visiting, we will be holding a viewing day at the Oxfam National Office on Wednesday 21 November, 10am – 4pm.

As usual, there are many bulk lots and some small collections which might make good Christmas presents for young collectors. We hope you find much that is both entertaining on a long winter’s night and useful to your collecting interests
