British Philatelic Bureau, Edinburgh
The range of stock of the Post Office - the service of a Stamp Shop !
Ever since the Philatelic Counter at the old Edinburgh GPO closed down, collectors have found it more difficult to obtain the supplies they want, with the level of service they used to expect. We hear similar stories from many parts of the UK - where there used to be a dedicated philatelic counter, there are perhaps now only limited products available through a Post Shop or similar.
We now provide that lost service !
Simply, as the service of our own
"British Philatelic Bureau" we hold in stock
everything on the Royal Mail Stamps stock list (with
the exception of the complete coils, sheets, and boxes
of stamps, postal stationery, aerogrammes and
aircards, unless we identify a demand for these), and
sell it at the same price as charged by the Post
Office. We also try to satisfy any regular demand for
such things as cylinder blocks, gutter pairs, and so
on, so that we avoid being "caught out" by shortages.
We will be happy to oblige individual customers
Furthermore, we can go one better !
FIRST DAY COVERS (-
you really want to have a collection the same as a
hundred thousand other people, with a resale value
of maybe 20p to 30p per cover ?)
PLEASE NOTE that any payments by credit/debit card for goods under the above services will be subject to the charges raised by our own bank (that is 1.9% on Visa and MasterCard payments, 18p per Maestro or Delta transaction). Customers making other purchases from our shop, which would not normally attract a charge, and who pay by debit card, will not have to pay the surcharge. More information.
