First of all, stamps will be well packaged and despatched by Royal Mail. Therefore please see our Shop menu for postal options. We only charge postage for the first item in most categories. Thus any further items purchased would not increase the final postal charges. Furthermore we do not charge you for envelopes and packaging materials,

Recorded Delivery or Registered Post is available if required. Consequently, compensation for loss or damage can be claimed if this option is taken.

We mention Stanley Gibbons catalogue numbers where it is possible. These numbers are either from the “Concise Stamp Catalogue” or from the “Specialised Stamp Catalogue Volume 5”. We will try to mention any other numbering that we may use if not covered by the above. Sometimes particular stamps, Smilers sheets, booklets, miniature sheets, or cylinder blocks are not recognized anywhere. Hence, in this case, we would use our own expertise to describe and value that particular item.

In conclusion, all of our stamps are unmounted mint and in an excellent condition. We will mention any variation to this statement.

It is noteworthy that we may make mistakes so please therefore let us know about them!
