Some News and Views. . .

   Since 1928, Linn’s Stamp News has been one of the cornerstones of philately in North America. The weekly publication keeps stamp collectors up to date with news and happenings in the philatelic world. It always offers enjoyable reading with informative, well-illustrated articles about every aspect of stamp collecting.

   Vance Auctions got its start in Linn’s. It has been almost fifty-two years since we mailed off typed pages of our first auction in 1972. Our Sale #1 offered 348 lots and filled one page in Linn’s. The sale was successful, and we are still going strong.

   In February 2024, Linn’s Stamp News published a special edition called Most Influential Companies in Philately. Vance Auctions is very honoured to be on the list of 67 companies chosen by the Linn’s team at Amos Press Inc.

   We spend a lot of our time in the office running our auction business, so we always look forward to getting out there and meeting stamp collectors face to face. It has been over 45
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 and other dealers.

   We enjoyed seeing many of our bidders in Ottawa at the ORAPEX show held in early May. Ottawa has a very active philatelic community, and it came out in full force. Collectors
also came from all over Canada and the United States to take part in the events, the seminars, the bourse, and to view the many fine exhibits.

   Our congratulations to the organizers of ORAPEX for another first class event. We look forward to next year’s show as well as several other shows between now and then. Our show itinerary is posted at our website under “Auction News”.

   The staff here at Vance Auctions has been very busy breaking down numerous bulky estate lots that have come in. The enclosed auction of over 7,400 lots contains a tremendous amount of material.

   You will find excellent sections of Canada and United States, plus nice showings of Germany and Colonies, Great Britain, France and Colonies, British Commonwealth, and Italy. This sale also has lots of postal history including Zeppelin covers and a great section of USA
2¢ Black Jack covers.

   Whether you use the printed catalogue or the web version, we hope that you will find just what you are looking for.
