VIEWING OF LOTS: FRIDAY Oct. 21 12:00 PM - 8:00 PM SATURDAY (AUCTION DAY) Oct. 22 8:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Welcome to sale #74. After almost 40 years of doing public stamp auctions this will most likely be our last sale. After having a void for two years we realize something has to give. We no longer have the time to produce auctions at a regular rate. The time spent on auctions is fulfilled by other priorities on our bucket list.
There are 475 large lots of accumulations, collections, and many boxes of bulk to be had. This includes 70+ large lots of postal history and covers. This sale is our bulkiest sale to date and will fill a one ton van. For our out of town bidders we strongly recommend that you come for the sale as we have to clear out this huge amount of bulk since we intend to vacate our storage premise which we currently rent. There is also a selection of World Wide and Canadian stamps to be had. Lastly there is a nice variety of Canadian Postal History some of which has not seen the market in 40 years.
All lots which are marked as photographed are scanned on our website and in some cases may not appear in the catalogue. Please use the website for viewing of these lots. Viewing is spread out over two days and we highly recommend that in order to ensure adequate viewing of lots, coming on Friday is essential. We continue to have an increasing number of bidders travelling from across Western Canada attending our sales which increase the amount of activity during viewing. For our out of town bidders The Chateau Louis has quite reasonable rates and is an ideal place to stay for attending our sales.
We try to confirm our email bids within 24 hours, so if you do not hear from us, re-submit your bids. A reminder to take advantage of our photos which are scanned on our website along with contents of the sale. Visit our website at www.wildrosephilatelics.com for viewing individual scans of covers.
Note on images: We have tried to have scans available for all lots marked as photographed (PH). The link to these scans are listed after the lot. In cases where both the front and back of a lot is of interest, both will be included in the scan, in some cases there will may be two scans, one for the front and one for the back. Due to space limitations and in the interest of download speed, the scans have been stored in JPEG format.
