Sparks Auctions Sale - 16

Sparks Auction #16 - January 27-29, 2015

Our January 2015 sale starts with a solid representation of top quality Canada classics, with three very fines among the three penny Beavers and several respectable mint examples included the thirty-one pence lots. The thirty-four lots of the 1859 are notable for eleven used blocks including the largest used multiple of the ten cent Consort, the very rare two cent, and three blocks of the 17 cent Cartier.

Dominion issues of Large and Small Queens offer quality singles, varieties, and even intact collections in sixty-three lots. The Late Victoria through Edward's reign offers 200 lots with many never hinged, often extremely fine, examples of stamps which are scarce and sought after in this top condition.

The Summerhill Collection of Admiral Issues is one of consistently high quality in the offering of singles and multiples of this popular collecting field. The major re-entries, and the jumbos including MR4a are among the temptations. In addition to new discoveries and rarities the modern issues are anchored by two very fine Seaway Inverts, one never hinged and one used.

Back of the Book include a strong selection of Official Plate Blocks with 'missing periods.' British North America offers more tantalizing gems especially a Jumbo Newfoundland number two, the equally scarce first issue one shilling and the very rare Balbo Flight Inverted Surcharge.

The Stanstead Collection offers nice, solid and consistent quality British Africa in 154 lots followed by more than one hundred lots of British Commonwealth with strength in Great Britain (five pound Orange), unused New Zealand number two, and especially a collection of Falkland Islands. USA number one kicks off a smaller than usual worldwide section.

Postal History has a wide range of Canadian and worldwide single covers, a thematic grouping of covers and a physically massive quantity of filled banker's boxes with interesting commercial mail from several consignors. This will require more viewing than usual.

Bidders will find abundance in the Lots and Collections. The overall quality and breadth of these will be a daunting task to view so plan accordingly in order to secure the best of the bargains.
