Stamp Program - Mail & Email Bid Sale
Friday, 31 May 2019
(postmarked before midnight)
Oxfam Mail and eMail Bid Sale #24 is
scheduled to close on 31 May 2019.
Lots 238-242: #F3, 8c blue, VF Used, well centred with light cancel, #OX1-2, F-VF Used, OX3-4 VF Mint
24th auction features 19th Century Canadian material, as well as the
usual variety of modern Canadian and world covers and stamps.
Recently we received donations of several specialized collections of
early Canada, Canadian postal history and stamps from China. We could
not possibly include them all in this auction but we have selected
some, and there will be many more next time. The Collections and Canada
Stamps sections have large and small queen lots as well as many others
such as the stamps shown above. The Canada Covers section has several
stampless and 19th C covers from a collector who specialized in the
postal history of Frontenac County among other locations, and we will
have a full postal history section in our next auction. The World
Stamps section has early Mint and cancelled to order stamps from the
People’s Republic of China as well as a few from the Republic of China,
and we have barely begun to examine three large boxes of Chinese
stamps. In this auction we also have a wide selection of First
Day Covers from Australia to Yugoslavia. For example, there are 7
lots of Hong Kong FDCs from 1984-2015.
If you would like to receive scans of lots, please let us know at email@example.com. You can also follow us at www.ohmygosh.on.ca.
Here is the link to our new Facebook page where we will also post up to
date information about our auction, our mail order price list and other
snippets about our work. www.facebook.com/oxfamstamps/.
For those in the Ottawa area or visiting, we will also be holding a
viewing day at the Oxfam National Office on Wednesday 29 May, 10am – 4pm
