First of all, stamps will be well packaged and despatched by Royal Mail, therefore see our Main Menu for postal options. We only charge postage for the first item in most categories. 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, loss or damage compensation is claimable if this option is taken.

We mention Stanley Gibbons catalogue numbers where it is possible. These numbers are either from the “Great Britain Concise Stamp Catalogue”, or from the “Great Britain Specialised Stamp Catalogue Volume 4 Parts 1 and 2”. Most of our Smilers Sheets use the Ridgewood Stamps’ numbering system. 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. 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 in this statement.

Please excuse any mistakes or errors that we make and please, therefore, let us know about them!
