The “Bedford” Collection Part I: United States & Canada On the next six pages you will find a small selection of stamps of the United States and Canada which comprise the “Bedford” Collection. In many cases while assembling this collection, a special emphasis was put on centering, multiples, and plate proofs. From highdenomination classics to modern errors, the “Bedford” Collection includes stamps to fit into very nearly every collection. A full catalogue will be forthcoming in the first months of 2021.
