The Second bill stamp material and the prices realized from the auction.

Revenues

This collection is the last of the large holdings of revenues. As it contains a number of stamps in larger quantities than normally found, this presents a unique opportunity to acquire multiples and to add to your collection interesting and unusual pieces rarely seen. Except where otherwise notes, catalogue numbers and values are from the 1982 Van Dam Canadian Revenue Stamp Catalogue.
