Ron Leith Auctions Sale - 53

Public Auction - July 24-25, 2021

A surge in April 2021 British Columbia Covid cases with the resulting business and USA border closures, forced a delay in the annual Ron Leith Auction into July 2021. By mid-summer, most Canada & USA residents should be vaccinated with life returning closer to normal. This will be the first live Canadian auction in over a year and it is scheduled for Friday through Sunday (July 23-25) at the Vancouver Atrium Inn. All Covid protocols will still be followed for safety. Note that auction lots weighing under 5 pounds will be shipped FREE in North America. This was changed from the previous 10 pound limit in the 2020 sale since we had many 5-10 pound boxes of books & supplies with selling prices below $50 that required $75-$100 postage. These had to be exempted from FREE delivery for obvious reasons. Less than 1% of our lots fall between 5-10 pounds, thus, over 99% of auction lots are unaffected.

Postal History Auction Highlights: includes a once in a lifetime $250,000 dealer stock of over 1600 better $50-$300 covers mostly from Canada, USA, and the British Empire. The covers have detailed descriptions, are mounted in quality sleeves, and are retail priced 20 years ago. These were stored and untouched until now when we were instructed to sell everything in one auction. We combined them into $1000 retail lots and placed very conservative estimates at 10%-20% of the original retail values. This is a gold mine for cover dealers and an incredible bargain for postal history collectors, a few high value rarities are lotted as single items (lots 558/937); the auction contains the final installment of the Michael Feinstein Re-used Turned Cover collection (lots 295-315); also note another 5 Saskatchewan Unreported town cancels (lots 128-134); good collections of USA and Canada Advertising covers; a scarce group of 13 USA Civil War Patriotic covers (lots 197-210); 5 good Malta Victorian rates (lots 376-380); 10 better Zeppelin Airmail covers (lots 486-495); 3700 Military covers & cards (lots 395-472); over 10,000 USA cachet FDC’s noting 6100 are Colorano Silk’s (lots 789-824); over 4600 USA cachet Event covers (lots 830-828) ++; the postal history section closes with 634 wholesale cover & postcard collections that are bound to satisfy philatelists and dealers alike.

Stamp Auction Highlights: includes a lovely collection of Canada 3d Beavers (lots 1101-1113); a good range of Canada 2-ring cancels (lots 1194-1214); better Canada LQ-SQ mint stamps (lots 1145/1191); mint Victoria Jubilee ½¢-$5.00 plus all the high value Leaf-Numeral and Edward-VII issues (lots 1215/1250); a rare group of Canada Admiral re-entries (lots 1261-1275); a very nice collection of Canada mint plate blocks 1911-1940’s; early USA Grill type D,E,F,Z issues (lot 1385-1394); a stock of over 72,000 USA Federal & State Revenue stamps (lots1649-1651); at least 75,000 Christmas Seals & Cinderella labels (lots 1656-1662) ++; the stamp section concludes with 210 Worldwide stamp collections noting extensive Canada, USA, German States, Great Britain, British Empire, Latin America, and Topical Stamps.
