AUCTION 1st February - WEATHER
We've had enquiries about whether tonight's auction will go ahead, due to strong winds.
>> Auction will go ahead as planned. <<
We can see no reason at present for the auction not to proceed. Anybody concerned about Forth Road Bridge closures can check at www.forthroadbridge.org.
Next Auction Now Online
Our next public auction sale is on Monday 1 February, and the catalogue is now available at this link (links from there to other formats). There's everything from big box lots to scarce individual stamps, plus country collections, covers, and so on, and the Collectable section has coins, postcards, banknotes, and other categories. If you do some buying in online auctions, maybe you should see what a real traditional auction is like - it's quite a different world. And don't worry if you are new to it, as we're happy to guide you and answer any questions. This auction has material belonging to 65 different vendors, and estimates range from £8 to £950. If you can get in to our shop to view and/or you can get along to the auction in person, that's great, but absentee bidders are also well looked after.
Forth Road Bridge 1964-2014 50th Anniversary Souvenir Pack
We've produced a special pack for the Bridge's Fiftieth Birthday, using original 1964 stamps, the black card and clear cover from 1970s/80s packs, but with a completely new descriptive wrapper, using photographs taken on the actual anniversary day (4 September 2014). These are available in our shop at £5 each.
Robert Murray Stamp Shop on Amazon
We usually have a wide range of books in stock, from very general popular titles, to some very specialised and often esoteric. Even visitors to our shop probably woudn't know we had them unless they asked. We have recently started offering some of these on Amazon; follow this link to see our current offerings (takes you off-site). And of course anything there is also available to retail shop customers.)
Our auctions are held every few weeks. Auction dates in the first part of 2016 are provisionally 1 February, 21 March, and 6 June. General auction information here.
The Shop now has a wider online presence on Facebook, Google+, and at LinkedIn. Please feel free to "like" or "connect" as appropriate in order to keep up with some of the snippets and comments that might not appear here.
We can provide gift vouchers for any value £5 upwards, and which can be spent on any purchases from our shop. We're even happy for people to spend their voucher in stages. These can be supplied by post.
UK NEW ISSUES
We made a policy decision to stop handling new UK stamp issues as a matter of course. (We do however continue to handle them on the secondary market.) For further information please follow this link.Also see Robert Murray's major article (published in The Philatelic Exporter) on the subject of the British Post Office's stamp issuing policy, and how this might effect the stamp business.
