“Our 1,350th auction 26th February 2022 was a success in spite of world events,” said owner and auctioneer Brian Grant Duff. “The collectibles market is resilient. We had bids from as far away as the London international show and a normal amount of bidders..”
The following lot offered a used $3 Jubilee stamp, which was tied by a Winnipeg cancel and sold for $708 on a $400 estimate.
