Preparations for the June 26th, 27th and 28th Sparks Auction have kept us very busy over the last few weeks. Nonetheless a veritable plethora of new items have made their way into our inventory recently. The list includes a large quantity of often very affordable French Colonies as well as French Community. For the collector of Canada we are constantly endeavouring to add unusual or scarce items. The last number of weeks have been no exception. New items include some scarcer pre-cancels, imperfs, early mint stamps, including Jubilees, as well as modern tag-shift varieties.
