It has been over 40 years since Vance Auctions first
took a booth at a stamp show, and it is still our favourite way to stay in touch with collectors. We enjoyed meeting many of our bidders at the recent Royal Philatelic Society
of Canada Convention held in nearby St. Catharines Ontario. Collectors came from far and wide to take part in the activities, the seminars, and the bourse.
Vance Auctions was proud to sponsor the President’s Reception on the Saturday evening, and it was a pleasure
to meet many of the exhibitors. The material and the information contained in the exhibits was very impressive. As I browsed through the frames I saw numerous items that came from our auctions. It was a stellar event, and
I congratulate everyone who was involved with the show.
With the sheer quantity of lots that are offered in any auction, some nice lots are overlooked and
do not draw bids. If for any reason you ever forget to bid by the closing date, please call us and we will
be happy to find out if any of the lots that you were interested in are still available. Any unsold lots are available after the closing date at very attractive price levels.
Even though this is the 332nd time, it is still exciting
to present a new auction catalogue. The enclosed sale offers
a wonderful array of material from better single items to rarities and cartons full. There are excellent sections
of Canada, Newfoundland, United States, Great Britain,
India, Germany and related areas, early Ceylon, and France. No matter what you specialize in, sooner or later it will show up on our auction pages.
With many bidders away during the summer, there are bound to be some bargains in this sale. We hope that you
will enjoy looking through the catalogue, and chances are
that you will find something that you need for your collection.
Bidding couldn’t be easier. You can mail or fax your
bid sheet, give us a call on our toll-free bid line, or drop us an email. You can also bid through our web site or through Stamp Auction Network. Remember that we will be here answering the phone until Midnight on August 22nd to help you with
your bids. Good luck!
