Over £0.5 million of rare stamps – discounted by up to 40%

I hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy. Ultimately, your health is your wealth above all else.

That said, your wealth will benefit from buying top quality rare stamps at “bottom of the market” prices...

I am delighted to introduce to you our BIG 100 Spring Stamp Sale of 2020. We have hand-picked 100 wonderful stamp rarities for your attention.

I am sure you have more time on your hands than normal and I hope you will find our digital Spring Sale catalogue a welcome distraction.

The selections include some exceptional rarities and often the finest quality examples of these rarities you could hope to find. 

Today is not a normal time and, as such, the catalogue offers you the opportunity to pick up these rarities at one-off discounts to our normal retail selling prices. In some cases, the discount on offer is up to 40% from our prices, which are already in many cases lower than SG catalogue values. 

Fortunately, our hobby lends itself perfectly to lockdown and I know many collectors are using this time to sort through their collections. Many of you are also probably using this time as a chance to embark on that philatelic project you have been struggling to find the time to get around to. 

It is also logical to expect many people will look to rare stamps as a way of safeguarding some of their capital during this time of extreme economic uncertainty. Having a portable tangible asset, which can be traded in multiple currencies around the world, providing a hedge against inflation and a means of diversifying away from more volatile investments, makes a lot of sense right now. 

The brochure includes 100 rare stamps from Great Britain, China and many countries from the British Commonwealth & Empire. All our stamps are, as always, sold with a lifetime moneyback guarantee of authenticity. 

There are so many bargains to choose from, it is difficult for me to direct you to any one area of the sale. 

However, here are just a small selection I suggest you seriously consider...

  • The first stamps issued by Mauritius included the words “POST OFFICE” rather than “POST PAID” and are the amongst the most famous and valuable stamps in the world
  • The early Mauritius stamps which followed are also immensely popular and are all tied up in major collections, rarely ever coming on to the market
  • Their distinct primitive character have made them highly prized by collectors
  • This example is from close to the earliest impression making it very desirable and rare
  • It is made even rarer as very few examples of this stamp are seen in such beautiful quality with good margins and only lightly cancelled, which barely obtrudes on any part of the design
  • The SG catalogue price is £9,500, meaning this major rarity could be yours for almost half the SG catalogue value
  • I doubt you will ever get another chance to pick up such an iconic rarity as this at such a low price
