Our next auction is on Saturday February 3rd.
There are over 840 lots on offer with estimates ranging from a tenner to several thousands so really something for everyone.
To mention just a few items, how about two boxed Imperial albums, both in excellent condition and full of good things. The first (lot E 30) covers Antigua to Malta and includes plenty of Edward VII material, most of the 1935 Jubilee sets, mint, George V to 5/-, and no shortage of Queen Victoria both mint and used. The vendor tells us the catalogue value is £45,000 excluding any damaged or fiscally used items.
The next lot (E 31) is the companion volume covering Mauritius to Zululand. Again both mint and used and of equal status, the vendor again telling us the catalogue prices the collection at £40,000 again excluding any damaged or fiscally used.
The estimate on each is £3,600 and at that price will certainly appeal for anyone who wants an instant collection to expand or an Ebayer with the time to carefully examine thousands of stamps.
If Commonwealth is your thing the sale also features an impressive 58(!) volume collection broken down into country lots.
We also have the usual range of box lots which we really do not have the time to check in any detail so there is always a good chance of a real find.
Oh, and needless to say there is plenty of specialist items including plenty of George VI listed flaws, 1d Blacks, mint GB Four Kings, a fine used PUC £1 (lot 771) and modern GB errors such as 1972 Explorers with missing gold and phosphor.
Among the more unusual there is the 1964 Forth Road Bridge Presentation Pack signed on the back “Best wishes to my son Michael, – Andrew Restall” (the stamps’ designer). Click on the image for more details.
They include England Winners illustrated covers signed by Martin Peters, Gordon Banks, Ray Wilson, Nobby Styles, Geoff Hurst, Alan Ball, Bobby Charlton, Bobby Moore, Jimmy Greaves, Alf Ramsey and a 1999 Bobby More pair on a cover signed by Kenneth Wolstenholme of ‘They Think its all over’ fame.

If this is your first visit we have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to find the stamps you are interested in. You can start by clicking on one of the main headers (Great Britain, Commonwealth, Europe or Rest Of The World) at the top of this page. You are then able to refine your search by clicking on an individual country on the drop-down menu on the right-hand side of the page.
We also have a Search option which lets you find items by country, thematic subject or any other words including reign for GB and Commonwealth countries and even SG number.
When you see a stamp you like, you can get a better look at it but either moving your cursor around the image or to see the whole stamp enlarged click on the magnifying glass in the top-right corner.
Unlike some, we don’t rip you off with postage costs. Buyers in the UK only have to pay £1, overseas is it just £2 – you can’t beat that.
The only thing we ask in return is that the minimum order you place is £10. Please see our Terms and Conditions page for full details.
