Sparks Auctions of Ottawa, Canada, has held regular philatelic auctions since 2007. Sparks endeavours to offer material carefully described with collectors in mind. We provide exacting descriptions accompanied by full-colour illustrations, presented both on-line and in our printed catalogues. We do not own the material that is offered in our auctions. Our lotters work with a large base of new and repeat consignors to give their consignments the attention they deserve. We pride ourselves in offering a traditional-style auction targeted at collectors with a broad range of collecting interests, but specializing in the stamps and postal history of Canada & B.N.A., British Commonwealth, as well as other countries. We also have a large section of collections and accumulations, as well as philatelic literature. Auction lots will be sold to the highest bidder and transactions will be recorded in Canadian dollars.
