Our buying prices are regularly published in leading philatelic publications such as the Philatelic Exporter, Gibbons Stamp Monthly, Stamp Magazine and Stamp & Coin Mart etc. The printed magazine adverts do go out of date fairly quickly therefore please always check for the most up to date prices published here on our website before sending your stamps.


​​​​​Market update 27th August 2020

 
 

Current demand for discounted postage remains fairly strong. We suspect that demand will ease significantly in July now that now that the COVID-19 restrictions as steadily being relaxed. No doubt there will now be massive surge for last minute holidays deals, which everyone thoroughly deserves after the recent events. Wishing everyone happy and safe holidays!

There are still very few public stamp auctions which means there is no better time to sell your stamps directly to us. Generally our published GB buying prices are higher than you would get at auction once all selling fees and VAT are factored in. We have large number of loyal customers who regularly purchase discount postage.

Please call or email to discuss any consignments of GB postage you have for sale. Tel 01896 759703 or 01896 759703.

3 - Great Britain Collectable Stamps

 

Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus outbreak it is now impossible to predict the value of any collectable stamps for the rest of this year.  We think that demand for collectable stamps will be very poor given that so many of us will have other more important priorities to deal with.  If you do have stamps you wish to dispose of we suggest that you sell them via our Internet selling service. Like a conventional stamp auction we charge a competitive commission rate when your stamps sell. Please call for advice on 01896 759703 or 07510 312271.
