R. Maresch & Son Auctions Ltd. Sale - 535

Spring Sale - April 26, 2017

Our last auction was very well received with many lots exceeding our pre-sale expectations by a considerable margin. The demand for philatelic material continues unabated and we received a record number of bid sheets for the auction, with participation from an abundance of new collectors, mainly bidding over the internet or by email.

As was the case last Fall, this sale is being slightly later than our traditional Winter auction, as we continue to embrace and expand the available online and internet components of auctioneering available to our customers in the 21st century. We hope to provide you next with an 'internet-only' collectors auction of individual stamps, sets, proofs and covers to be held during the summer months, and we will also hold our normal public auction in September, with literally several truckloads of material and several specialized collections having already arrived for inclusion.

This current sale offers over 1700 lots in three sessions and the first session begins with the usual extensive offering of bulky collections and larger lots as well as Stampless Postal History. It also includes a specialized FIRST DAY COVER collection in 200+ lots formed over several decades by Terry Mainprize, the best we have ever been privileged to offer, with an extensive selection of Dyer hand-painted covers as well as several other unique or extremely rare runs or individual gems. We would like express our profound appreciation to Mr. Paul Varty for his expert assistance in lotting this specialized material. The first session continues with Pence and Cents issues and concludes with the Large Queen section which contain a lifetime assemblage of premium used stamps featuring jumbo margins, cds cancels, etc. The second session has the balance of Canada from Small Queens to Revenues, with high values, specialized papers, perforations, usages, varieties, multiples, proofs, etc. The third session contains Canadian Provinces with a significant offering of British Columbia and Vancouver Island including a mint #1 in showpiece quality with sheet margin as well as other Pence issues including Newfoundland, etc. This last session continues with Great Britain including a good selection of Penny Blacks as well as in-depth Machin Heads with many varieties and specialized listings. It concludes with over 450 lots of British Commonwealth and Foreign material including collections, singles and sets.

Please note that in keeping with industry standard and in order to continue to provide our consignors with a competitive commission structure we have changed the buyer’s premium charged on each auction lot to 18%. This change has been noted on our printed bid sheet as well as in our terms of sale.

You can get your bids to us ELECTRONICALLY via Stamp Auction Network (www.stampauctionnetwork.com), by email (bids@maresch.com) (www.maresch.com), or through our website.
