Lot 34 - 1859 6d Brown Violet Consort, Perforated 11¾, mint with full original gum, slightly disturbed. This lovely stamp has deep rich colour and a crisp impression. A very well centered stamp as well, as even the nicest mint examples are often off-center. There are two clear intersecting guidelines in the bottom left margin, adding to the desirability of this stamp. A truly stunning stamp in all respects, quite fresh and very fine. Accompanied by 1966 and a 2007 Philatelic Foundation certificate....Unitrade $ 75,000 Sold for C$ 34,000

Sparks Auctions Sale - 33

Sparks Auction #33 - June 25-27, 2020

We are pleased to announce our long-awaited next auction, to be held on June 25-27, 2020. Normally this sale would have been scheduled for the end of May, but the global COVID-19 pandemic and its resulting restrictions required us to reschedule the sale.

The first part of this sale will feature Part 2 of the "Outaouais" collection of high quality Canada and United States, with many certificates and great provenance.

Sale 33 highlights also include:

  • The Brian Plain collection of Canadian Dead Letter Office postal history
  • Part 2 of the extensive Leon Victor Pont collection of early India First Flight postal history in 159 lots
  • Our usual offerings of Canadian and worldwide postal history and postcards
  • Our usual offerings of Canadian and worldwide stamps and collections
  • Two worldwide lifetime collections, one in 42 Scott International albums and one in 38 Minkus Albums, both offered intact.
This sale will be conducted without a public floor, and bidding live during the auction will be possible in one of two ways, the best being through our usual live internet bidding on Stamp Auction Network. We will also offer live bidding by telephone, but this method will be limited to ensure a high-quality experience for participants. Please contact us early if this is a method you prefer.

Confidential bidding before the auction can be done in several ways, either by entering bids directly in SAN, by sending us your bids by phone, email, or fax, or by sending them to one of the agents we list in our catalogue and online.

Sparks Auctions will do its utmost to keep its staff and customers safe, therefore we have posted our COVID-19 protocols in our offices and online.

Because mailing out catalogues on time will be a challenge, we will only be doing so for our Canadian subscribers. All our catalogues can always be downloaded as PDFs from our website, where you can also see our posted corrections, additional photos, and full details on auction sessions as well as information on viewing, mailing and picking up of your winnings.

A reminder that all our lots are offered in Canadian dollars at a competitive 17% commission rate. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or require additional scans or would like to consign to one of our future sales.
