Canada new issues: Junos, Insulin, Eid and 2 stamps plus mini sheet for Ballet.
Turks + Caicos Islands. A smallish dealer’s stock (the stock was small not the dealer!) It included stamps from all the reigns but the majority were QE2 and that is where the bulk of the new material was. There were sets going up to 1980.

I added a small quantity of Australian States to stock today. All States were represented but the largest quantity were from South Australia. There were some superb used among them but of course many were nearer good used as is usually the case with Australian States.

All week I have been working on my Cuba stock. Recent additions go all the way through to 1980, although my list already contains many more recent issues. I have a high degree of completeness in the modern issues.

Modern gaudy collection of
—Cook Islands 1965-75
—Penrhyn 1973-5 plus later stamps of sailing Craft
Mostly complete sets with several mini sheets. The Penrhyn was completely new to stock.
The only drawback is that many of the stamps are still on piece because when I started soaking some stamps, they stuck to the paper and seemed welded on.
