Canada, A Large, Bulging Stockbook of Mint & Used, 1859-2016. A huge stockbook, packed with several thousand stamps beginning with the 1859 First Cents and running up to 2016's $5 Star Trek pair (2922a-b). The value is mainly in the mint, and just to give you an idea of what's in here, we'll list just few of the (mint) highlights: Victoria Jubilees: ½¢ (2), 5¢ (9), 6¢ (3), 8¢ (3), 10¢ (2); Victoria "Maple Leafs": 3¢ (8 - 3 NH), 6¢ & 8¢; "Numerals": 6¢ (2), 7¢ (3), 8¢ (2) & 10¢ (3); Quebecs: 5¢ (5), 7¢ (5), 10¢ (6), 15¢ (1) & 20¢ (2); Edward VII: 5¢ (9), 7¢ (6), 10¢ (6); etc., etc., etc. The Admirals onward are similarly well represented with lots of high values including the 50¢ Blue Nose (3 - one XF OG, one F-VF NH, one regummed), #176 (6), 177 (3), and back-of-the-book C2 (25 - 12 NH), E3 (10 - 4 NH), E4 (10 - 3 NH), E5 (8 - 4 NH) and much, much more. Condition, of course, is a big factor, as it varies wildly from VF or better to VG or defective, the gum from NH to none at all. But the total Scott value of the lot is well in excess of $30,000, and there is a ton of saleable material here just waiting to be discovered. Allow plenty of time for viewing this one — you'll be glad you did.
Estimate $3,500 - 5,000.

Canada, Excellent Used Collection, 1852-1976. The balance of a very nice collection on blank pages in a 3-ring binder; starts with a four-margin #4, followed by the First Cents issue minus #16; from that point forward it is very nearly complete, missing only the rarer Large & Small Queens, the $2-$5 Jubilees, and, of course the Port Hood Provisionals; the back-of-the-book issues are also essentially complete, the only obvious missing number being the first 50¢ O.H.M.S.; in addition, there is a scattering of Provinces, including a nice four-margin Newfoundland #11A; as for condition, other than a few early minor flaws, just about everything is clean and F-VF. A great lot.
