Freaks & Errors
CSN featured our sale (on Sunday 10th December) of Hanukkah recalls:
"Both the original and reprinted Hanukkah booklet issued by Canada Post this November sold for $134 yesterday as part of the weekly auction hosted by All Nations Stamp and Coin.
The following lot of Auction #1137—Lot 61—offered an original Hanukkah first-day cover, which realized $220, more than doubling its pre-sale estimate of $100.
In All Nations’ previous weekly auction, held Dec. 2, both the original and reprinted Hanukkah booklet were offered as Lot 75. Together, they brought $99 after a pre-sale estimate of $60."
Here is a freak and error misprint of great interest to stamp collectors. It's from the Freaks and Errors in an estate collection formed over 50 years.
This dramatic error will be offered in our 1150th auction
We are accepting consignments of problem free stamps, coins, and banknotes, with a catalogue value of $500., for the auction. Thanks.
