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

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

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

offering of British Columbia and Vancouver Island including a mint #1 in
showpiece quality with sheet margin as well as other Pence issues including
