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
