(Any prices quoted in grey indicate that we are out of stock.)

Pricing of decimal issues. We have used a method of pricing which may at first seem complicated, but is easily understood with a minute's serious thinking !
Simply, we sell virtually everything at face value plus just a small handling charge. So, for example, we'll take the example of the 2000 "Tree and Leaf" set, which comprises 2nd Class (50p), 1st Class (60p), 45p, and 65p denominations. A complete set of four stamps therefore has a total face value of 2.20, we will charge 2.20 plus 10p. For the presentation pack we will also charge 2.20 plus 10p. However, if you just need one or two odd stamps from the set (rather than buy the whole set) we'd charge face value plus 10p for each stamp (i.e. 70p for the 1st Class one, or 55p for the 45p value).
Once you've got your head round this it will all be quite simple.

Until you get to the exceptions !
There are some issues here and there which are scarcer, and these carry a higher premium than normal. Throughout the list, you can see whether something has a standard price, which will be marked as "F+10p" (= face value plus 10p), or if it is higher the premium will be obvious, as they'll be noted as for example "F+50p" or "F+6" for 50p or 6 above face value respectively.
We've a page with all the face values listed at www.stamp-shop.com/UK-commemorative-face-values.html
The advantages of this system are varied, but the largest to us is that we don't need to reprice everything any time there's a change in postal rates.

Other categories not priced on the list;
First Day Covers; We do not now list individual standard first day covers, as they are so cheap. You can buy them in our shop from out big "pick-your-own" boxes at 50p each (or 10 for 4, or 100 for 30). We also sell sandom bundles at 20 per hundred or 15 per kilo. We do keep stocks of individually priced FDCs, but these are the ones with better postmarks, or privately produced covers, etc.
PHQ Cards; Again, we have stopped pricing all but the earliest cards individually, and sell them in bundles by weight, or from browsing boxes in our shop.
Used Stamps; We have extensive stocks of individual used commemoratives, but these don't have standard prices due to quality of cancel etc.
Gutter Pairs; for the vast majority of these we just charge for two sets.

HOW TO ORDER; you can order by post, by telephone, or by e-mail.
HOW TO PAY; you can pay by cheque, by cash or by credit/debit card.

Please see our  How to Order page for details - we try to be as helpful as possible when finding ways that you can pay !

QUALITY; all prices are for goods in the following conditions;
Mint sets - prices for unmounted mint, with no faults. Any sets issued in blocks or strips se-tenant are supplied that way unless specifically stated. We can very often supply lightly mounted mint examples of some of the dearer pre-decimal sets, usually at about 40% less than the prices here.
Presentation Packs - all prices are for fine condition, although in the earlier years, a certain amount of cellophane shrinkage/warping/splitting is to be expected. Our stock usually represents the better end of the range of quality of the material that passes through our hands. In later years (mid-1970s onwards), we would expect to supply in "Post Office Quality", i.e. as supplied when new. (In some cases our packs will be better than average post office issue quality, as any we see with obvious short perforations etc. on the stamps will be rejected by us.)
