2n770As 2012 draws to a close we would like to thank all of our loyal customers for another banner year and welcome new faces to the store as we prepare to ring in 2013!  If you have not come in and taken advantage of our big year-end sale, there is still time, as it remains in effect until January 5th.  In terms of material added to our inventory over the past couple of weeks, we have held nothing back in light of the sale.  Look for better Brazil material, including proofs.  For the collector of Worldwide first issues there have been some scarcer items that have been recently added to our inventory, including a rather handsome Tuscany #1, a seldom seen stamp.  For the collector of British Empire, all manner of sets and singles have been added, seemingly from every corner of the globe without undue emphasis on any one area.  Once again, however, Canada has been the big story of late with many choice items having been added to inventory, including a selection of nice used #4’s, early stamps with interesting cancels, better mint, including Plate Blocks, key stamps and still more varied and fascinating pre-cancels.
