1052 CVR   imageCollection of Eight House of Commons Postmarks on Cover, 1873 to 1879, all addressed to Henry J.

We note Davis #s CP-5 (in red, 2 covers, poor strikes), CP-6i (in red, 3 covers), CP-6ii (in blue, 2 covers), CP-8i (in blue, one cover). Most strikes are very fine unless noted. Some staining to a few covers, still a good offering of these postmarks and quite interesting reading. (Scan a) (Scan b) (Scan c) (All Scans)

1053 CVR   imageCollection of 18 House of Commons Cancels on Covers, 1880 to 1905, mostly all addressed to Henry J.

House of Commons postmarks include Davis #s CP10a, and a variety of other FREE datestamps between CP15 and 20, plus a few without the FREE inside, used to indicate mail was sent from the House of Commons, or received there.

1057 CVR   imageLovely Grey County Postal History Exhibit, put together long ago by the late Jim Kraemer, and always left intact since then. This exhibit has 96 pages (6 frames) and is on good quality A4 paper. The towns are presented alphabetically from Allan Park to Yeoville, followed by railway post offices of the area. We counted 105 covers or cards, mostly dating from early stampless to the Victorian era, with a few up to QEII. The collector visibly sought only the best quality strikes and items for each town, and has written each page up with opening and closing dates of the post office, a photocopy of the back (or front) as well as good reproductions of the postmarks. There are too many rare items to list here, but we have chosen a small selection of scans to give the general flavour. Additionally, all pages have been scanned and can be seen on our website at sparks-auctions.com/auction-27/exhibits. Some items of note are manuscript (pre-postmarking instrument) markings, Large Queen covers (including two addressed to Sir Sanford Fleming), fancy cancels, many early and late dates (several not reported until now), illustrated advertizing covers (some in full colour), a 6c Small Queen bisect (properly tied, to UK) and much more. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the exceptional quality of this collection / exhibit. Also included is a group of 108 covers and cards which have not been mounted yet (some faults on a few of these).

Starts with an interesting 2-page write-up, followed by a page full of different shades, then by a calendar collection. The 2c carmine is represented by a calendar collection only.
