Canada/Stamps : From The Hoard: High Denomination & High CV Canada

Unlike a lot of "rookies" looking at a pile of stamps in a shoebox, or a couple dusty albums they inherited from Uncle Chester, I don't expect to find a "rare" stamp lat alone something "key" or just plain old "very high CV" (I'm assuming for most of us a $50+ CV stamp is awesome, $100+ amazing, and $500+ probably heart-attack inducing).

After a while I just expect to see "Minimum CV 25c" so the economics of the hobby don't really turn me on - it's more about the beauty of the particular stamps I find. However, quite frankly I do still get a bit giddy when I come across anything with 3 decimals (yes, including the decimal point as in "$2.65").

That being said, I think (relative to my $400 investment) I hit the Jackpot Thumbs Up with my Canadian find (even excluding the hundreds of $ of random MNH and MH stuff). 2 Minkus Albums in pristine condition, loaded with MNH and which I'll keep for my collection; and a Harris which I have stripped over the weekend.

I don't have a Canadian catalog available so I'm going by a quick look at the StampWorld online site for approximate retail prices. These are all MNH semi-randomly picked from one Minkus.

So you tell me...am I close to recouping that $400 yet?

P.S. Some of the older ones I find still have the paper in the perf holes which (especially in photos) makes the perforations look a bit awkward. Should I pick those out or just leave them as is?

I think you recouped your original investment! You have gotten more then $400.00 just in fun and entertainment from this lot. I enjoy seeing what you come up with next. I like the Canada collection of stamps.

If these are all NH, you have your total investment of $400 in easily realizable value right here in these pictures.

Leave the perfs alone. You are more likely to cause damage than to improve the stamp.

Nice batch! They are mostly well centered and if NH you should get your $400 plus some.
