    Dear Collector friends - Happy New Year.

    Once again some wonderful material on offer. Sales of revenue & semi-official material have been strong. In a number of cases I had multiple orders for the same item, but only one item available. Please order early and avoid disappointment. The rare precancels in ReveNews #168 were well received. A few collectors called me excitedly to tell me they own a copy of the rare FWT13a of which only 2 copies were known to exist. I asked if I could see them in order to update the count of how many of these rarities actually exist. To my surprise the items purchased elsewhere and submitted to me were fakes. The fakes are the wrong shade & have other telltale signs. Compare them with one of the inexpensive red "X" overprints and the fakes become quite obvious. Certificates of authenticity from a recognized revenue expert are a good idea if in doubt - I have 42+ years experience - fees on request.

    I accept these credit cards Discover, Diners Club, Visa & Mastercard

    For a great selection of Canada Revenues, Semi - Official Airmails, Duck & Conservation stamps visit


    Orders filled in order received. When you call and get my voice mail, please leave a detailed message with items you wish to order, credit card # , expiry date, name on card + 3 digit security code from reverse. Usually I respond within 24 - 48 hours unless I am out of town, in which case I will contact you upon my return. Cdn$ and US$ exchange rate fluctuates a lot. For the convenience of our US customers I will accept check/draft/cash payments in US$ and Cdn$ at par. Exchange rate subject to change without notice. All prices shown are in Cdn $. It is easiest to pay by credit card, your card company will handle the exchange rate. All credit card transactions processed in Cdn$.
