Current Weekly Auction - Closing Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at 11:30 pm Atlantic Time

Welcome to our weekly unreserved auction! This week we feature a two part theme:

  • The conclusion of last week's Queen Elizabeth II British Commonwealth MNH theme from 1952-1971 for Countries from Somaliland to Zanzibar - Lots 311 to 411.
  • The 1967-1973 Centennial issue of Canada 1c and 2c values - lots 1 to 185.

This week's Centennial lots will cover the varieties and plate blocks of the 1c and 2c values, with the tagged 2c blocks, booklets and singles to follow next week, as well as the 3c and 4c values. I had initially allowed 8 weeks for the coverage of this issue, but it may take up to 10-12 weeks.   

****Important note***

To improve visibility of the lots containing more than one stamp, choose list view, rather than the default grid view. If you look on your screen just above the lots you will see a toolbar with "Sort by", "Show" and "View As". Under the "View As" you will see 2 choices: one arranged like a grid and one arranged like a list. Choose list view with your cursor and it will show the lots at full size. 

Welcome to our current weekly auction! Every week, we take over 200 listings from our stock and offer them with no reserve, to the highest bidder. The rules are very simple:

  1. All bids will appear as a cryptic version of the bidder's last name to preserve anonymity, while enabling you to tell if you are bidding against the same bidder. So "John Doe" would appear as "J****e". 
  2. You must log in to bid. If you do not have an account, you will have the option of creating one on the login page.
  3. You can now bid directly from the auction collections page. You no longer have to go into each individual listing to place a bid. 
  4. The bids that will display are colour coded to provide you an easy way to tell if you are in the lead. A green bid means you are the high bidder, red means you have been overbid and black means you have not yet bid.
  5. The minimum bid for any item is $1 CDN.
  6. Bidding is in $1 increments. 
  7. You are responsible for honouring all bids made. Please respect the integrity of the auction process and do not place a bid unless you intend to honour it in the event that you are successful.
  8. Canadian residents will be charged HST or GST as required by their province.
  9. Unlike e-Bay, Hipstamp or many other online venues this is a true auction in the sense that bidding does not close on an item until 3 minutes after the last bid has been placed. This is done in order to give every interested bidder an opportunity to bid. So, while the target closing time is 11:30pm for all lots, many of these will not close until well after 11:30pm, if they continue to receive bids after 11:27pm.
  10. After the close of the auction, you will be notified as to which lots you were successful on and will be directed to checkout to complete your purchase.
  11. Discount coupons do not apply to auction purchases. 
  12. In the case of ties, the earlier bid always wins.
