The 5 Golden Rules in selecting stamps for investment

The stamps within the portfolio all pass our stringent “5 Golden Rules” test for investment purposes: 

  1. Rarity – stamps where there are a small number of surviving examples or scarce in comparison to levels of demand 
  2. Quality – all stamps in the portfolio are of very fine to exceptional quality and well above average condition compared to typical examples 
  3. Price – current valuation not considered demanding in relation to rarity and quality, with plenty room for future price appreciation 
  4. Liquidity – stamps only selected in areas where there are wide collector bases and of appeal to a broad range of collectors 
  5. Authenticity – all stamps were purchased from reputable and trustworthy sources with clear provenance 

Some examples of the application of these golden rules in the starter portfolio…

There are only 53 known examples of the double overprint error block of four “Camel and Postman” stamps from Sudan.

The Canadian Queen Victoria’s Jubilee stamp is fresh, well centred with large part original gum and is seldom seen in such fine condition.

The GB King George V “Seahorse” stamp is arguably the highest quality stamp ever produced by Great Britain. Despite this, and the wide base of collectors for such stamps, it has shown negligible growth in value over the past 10 years. As such, it is a calculated bet that a price correction is justified and the current valuation presents excellent value in comparison to other famous stamps.

There are only a maximum 120 examples of the Indian stamp error included in the portfolio. It is expected the survival rate is much lower. India has a large base of passionate collectors, which is growing every year, providing a well-supported and liquid market.

All stamps are sold with the Paul Fraser Collectibles lifetime money-back guarantee of authenticity as a standard term of sale. Paul Fraser Collectibles has been trading successfully for the past 10 years and has strong asset backing to ensure this protection remains good for the next 10 years.
