Robert Murray Stamp Shop,

Edinburgh Castle stamp

Scotland's Leading Dealer, Valuer, and Auctioneer, for stamps, coins, banknotes, medals, and cards.

Thank you for visiting our website.
The big news is that Robert Murray is working towards semi-retirement, with a target date of about April 2022.

We have stopped doing our "quick informative valuations", and we are not buying any material for stock. Neither are we currently accepting material for sale by auction.
We do however still carry out formal valuations (e.g. for insurance or estate valuation).

We are planning online auctions, probably in about February and April 2022, each of these dates probably being a "duo" of live and timed auctions.

The retail shop is not open at any regular hours, though customers can visit by appointment, or can get in touch to arrange to pick up items they would like to purchase.
We'd very much like to have some days here and there when we can be more generally open, and that will be announced here as and when anything is fixed.

In the meantime, we are visiting areas of our very large stock, and we'll list below different categories as and when we can "go live" with them.

Areas of stock where we can currently take orders;

[added 5.12.21]  Discount postage stamps in our popular retail packets.
[added 16.8.21]  Prangnell-Rapkin albums and leaves, including discontinued lines and second-hand.
[added 14.12.21]  Stanley Gibbons discontinued albums and leaves (if you only see the page you've seen previously, please remember to do a full reload of the page by holding the shift key while clicking reload).

[coming soon]  Kiloware
[coming soon]  Hartberger coin holders
[coming soon] Second-hand world and Commonwealth catalogues
[coming later] Plastic cases for commemorative crown coins

Our last ONLINE STAMPS AND COLLECTABLES AUCTIONS were held in late November 2021.
Follow these links to see these past auctions, and watch here to see updates about future auctions. If you want to be informed when new auctions are posted, please ask to go on our emailing list.
These were a live online auction on Monday 22nd November, followed by a timed auction on Tuesday 23rd November, with in excess of 1,800 lots between them. The live auction featured the important collection of perfins and security overprints formed by the late Terry Wood.
