Brigham Auctions Ltd. Sale - 7
Edward VII, 1903-1911 -
January 23, 2016
Part VIII offers the Edward VII collection which is the first 20th Century
issue of Canada to receive an International Large Gold medal. In fact, it
has received three and the collection is qualified for a future Grand Prix
Probably the greatest Edward VII collection ever assembled. It is replete
with unique items such as the 1901 Composite Essay Presentation Panel which
debunks the long held belief that the Post Office had no intention of
issuing new stamps until the contract ran out with the printer in 1903.
There is also a most extensive collection of die essays from the British
Security printers for this issue. A vast array of plate number strips and
blocks and misperforated varieties can be found in the auction’s 304 Edward
VII lots. The experimental coil sections shows items from every type. The
booklet section offers three complete tête-bêche booklet panes of six
including one (left hand side) of two recorded plate number blocks and one
(right hand side) of two recorded bottom margin blocks.
The postal history portion unveils covers with a myriad of different rates
and unusual destinations (e.g.: Canal Zone, Cape of Good Hope, Ceylon,
China, Finland, Jamaica, Japan, Malta, Martinique, Siam, Sierra Leone,
Tasmania and Turkey). Many of the lower values are found on illuminated and
colourful advertising covers. The high values show unusual frankings and
contain two of the eight known 50¢ frankings.
Part IX is a continuation of Part VII from our previous auction and
features some of the holdings and rarities of the Queen Elizabeth II Era of
The Brigham Collection. Here you can find hard to get hard to find
imperforates, stunning misperfs, missing colours, Repellex errors and
printed on gum side errors. A few older full sheets join Elizabethan full
sheets in this section.
