Concluding another productive month, we have a number of exciting additions to our inventory to report. Beginning with Canada where we have added Small and Large Queens, including on cover. Staying with Canada, we have also beefed-up our offering of high quality coils in singles, pairs and strips of four. For British Empire, starting with Great Britain, we have added selected quality used stamps for Victoria as well as Edward VII. Turning our attention to the wider Commonwealth, we may report interesting additions to countries of the British Pacific area, such as Norfolk Island, Tonga and Tuvalu. Also a nice assortment of Semi-Postals from Germany have been added to our inventory.
Victoria 1sh. bicolour with ‘GOVt PARCELS’ Official overprint. Fresh mint never hinged Very Fine. This stamp, along with its contemporaries, was printed with fugitive inks and surviving examples of this issue and ones like it have often discoloured through the years. Even humidity in the air can cause stamps like this to fade over time. An exceptional stamp for the issue. Catalogue value shown is for mint hinged. Our Price: $775.00
At about the mid-month mark we have a number of interesting additions to our inventory worth reporting. As always we have added a respectable amount of better early items to our extensive Canada inventory. Highlights include mint Admirals, used Large and Small Queens as well as revenues and pre-cancels. British Empire colonies which received extra attention over the past couple of weeks include Malaysian States, Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland. For the topical collector a few areas of areas of note are Art, Birds and Butterflies.
As this year draws to a close a few more gems have made their way into our inventory which could not go unmentioned. Our drive to keep adding quality early Canada continues with the addition to inventory of a number of Small Queen precancels as well as other better early material. The popular areas of Canadian perfins as well as Revenues have both received special attention. Better used stamps from British Colonies such as Hong Kong and the Malayan States have been added. Also early Soviet Union material makes its way into inventory.
As the Holidays approach and with the snows so too comes our favorite time of year here at Ian Kimmerly Stamps: our annual sale. The best time to acquire those philatelic gems you may have been waiting most of the year to pick up. This will be our last major sale event. Additions to inventory from over the last week or so include better Canada, Bahamas and a very serious quantity of better used Malaya. We have also added a good deal of other foreign, such as Italy. For the topical collector Buildings and Birds are areas to which we have added. All of these latest additions qualify for Kimmerly Dollars during our huge annual sale.
