Modern UK Rarity to be Sold in our August Auction
This is the UK 1980 Sports stamp with the missing gold head, and is only the third example to be discovered. It will have an estimate of £10,000 and will be up for sale on 24 August. It's a great example to show that there are still "finds" to be made ! The full auction catalogue is available online at this link. More information is on our shop Facebook page.
Specialised Book Auction added to our Auction Schedule
We are delighted to have been instructed by Malcolm Cant, the author (now retired) of numerous respected works on Edinburgh, to sell his reference library. Well over a thousand books, almost all on Edinburgh subjects, and including many scarce volumes, will be offered for sale by auction on Monday 7 September 2015. The catalogue is available online at this link.
Priced Album Pages
We reckon we've now got something like twenty-five thousand priced album pages in our shop. They are not something we can list, nor are they suitable for mail order, but we're always hoping we can tempt people into making the effort to come in to our shop. So - we've chosen a representative sixty pages, scanned them, and uploaded them onto our shop's Facebook page. You can see them without having to be a member of Facebook.
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.
Our auctions are held every few weeks. Auction dates in 2015 are provisionally 2 February, 30 March, 8 June, 24 August, 12 October, and 23 November. General auction information here.
We are delighted to have been given the job of selling Malcolm Cant's library of Edinburgh books (approx. 1,000 volumes). This will form a special sale, to be held on Monday 7 September 2015. Full details in due course.

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.
