613 CVR Flag imageLight but Complete Impression of JAN.26.1897 Montreal Imperial 1-6 'E' Ensign Flag Cancel, tying 3c Small Queen to La Presse corner card cover addressed to USA, with a Southbridge Mass. Jan 26th backstamp receiver. This is the rare use of the 'E' obliterator with the Montreal 'WY' dater hub showing the wide '1897' and smaller top in the 'A' of Montreal, that were only used together from January 23-28. Now considered to be one of Canada's flag cancel hidden rarities due to this short 6 day use, it has a 2008 Langford catalogue value of U$400 on cover. Lot has photocopies of the 1-6 flag cancel used on January 22 & 29 with the 'UZ' dater hub, thus confirming the short January 23-28 period of use for the "WY' dater hub. Cover reduced about 9 mm at right from opening, but not into stamp or cancel and is otherwise fine to very fine. (Scan a) Est $ 250

614 CVR Flag imageMontreal 9-2 Bickerdike Flag Cancel dated APR.14.1898, tieing 3c Leaf to a skillfully rebacked Lyman, Sons & Co. corner card cover. In the March-June 1995 Flag Pole, David Sessions noted that this flag cancel was used at Montreal for only 4 days in 1898, from April 13-15 and with a single reported use on April 18, thus making one of Canada's most elusive flag cancels. A very fine and almost complete impression of this rare flag cancel. Throne's revised catalogue value is $500. (Scan a) (Scan b) (All Scans)

624 O/CVR/PC Orbs 9 image2-T3 TORONTO/CANADA 2-Ring Orb Collection, consisting of 147 strikes on stamps (many multiples) and 13 covers/post cards. This is the only orb post mark that is 'unofficial', having been made by altering a former duplex Lee #DUN-148 or Cloutier #DUN-148. 30 examples of the unofficial duplex on stamps are also included with this collection. Orb dates range 15/JAN 16/02 to 13/DEC 18/03. This hammer was used primarily for nonstandard mail, such as oversize covers and parcels. While the collection includes a fair number of stamps, the cover collection is sparse, and this post mark should be in the 'scarce' category. (Scan a) (Scan b) (Scan c) (All Scans)

628 CVR Orbs 12.5 image3-H1 HAMILTON/CANADA 3 Ring Orb Used in 1922, a 2c Admiral pays the local drop letter rate and is tied by an Orb dated AUG.29.1922 at 10pm, being a full 22 years later than the latest recorded use of this datestamp in Hamilton. Study of other covers dated the same day reveals that it was probably used because the machine impressions on that evening were getting dirty and unreadable. This cover was written-up in the Spring 2011 PHSC Journal. Tear at bottom right, still a rare usage of this postmark (an undated strike is known on a 1c Admiral stamp). (Scan a) (Scan b) (All Scans)
